Sweet Sixteen Team Returns to the Floor on June 6 in Philadelphia

Cornell's 2010 Sweet Sixteen Team will face the Illinois Hoopville Warriors in the First Round of The Basketball Tournament on June 6, 2014 in Philadelphia.



 TBT previews the game as follows:
“We could never be as good alone as we are together,” all-time leading scorer Ryan Wittman, said after Cornell’s memorable 2010 march to the Sweet 16. Reuniting its entire 2010 team, Cornell Sweet 16 will have to rely on that sense of togetherness (not to mention its talent and depth) to prevail in its opening round match-up against the stacked Illinois Hoopville Warriors. With a roster of current and former pros, including Euroleaguers, D-Leaguers, and an ex-NBA player, Hoopville is loaded at the guard position but without a true center. Jeff Foote, the 7 foot captain of the 2010 squad stands 3 inches above the tallest Warrior, giving Cornell a scoring and rebounding advantage down low that the Chicago-based team will have trouble matching. Expect an interesting contrast in styles in this match-up, with Cornell working the inside-outside game and Hoopville looking to get up and down the court.
See the bracket.

I just checked out the web site for this tournament. I am not sure I understand where the $$$ is coming from, but it is a very interesting concept. If I read it correctly, there is a $500K payout to the winning team. Looks like ND has an alumni team as well. I would be interested to hear how the attendance is.

It will be interesting to see what kind of attendance they get for it. I saw that there is also a ND alumni team eneterd.
