War Tampa got blown out last summer...now they're coming for revenge

After a blowout loss in the first round of TBT 2020, War Tampa is returning with a vengeance -- and that’s just the start of it.

War Tampa may be embracing more of their War Eagle side in 2021 in hopes of becoming a full-fledged Auburn alumni team. After adding notable grads Bryce Brown, Desean Murray and Horace Spencer last summer, the team is ready to welcome even more. 

Murray announced on Monday that his team will be applying for TBT 2021 with a revamped roster this summer. 

 

Murray proved to be a key shooter for War Tampa, scoring 13 of the team's 53 points in their lone game last summer. Spencer had 6 rebounds and a block, while Brown had 8 points and a steal against House of ‘Paign

The familiar faces were a hit among the Auburn community and brought back memories of their 2019 Final Four run.

 

It also provided a small ray of sunshine in a dark year for Auburn fans, who were distraught after the Tigers' college season was cancelled due to COVID-19. They were ranked No. 20 in the nation before the NCAA ended the season.

Will we see more players from the 2019 Final Four team? Could some youngins from the 2020 team jump on board? Will Brown, Murray, and Spencer all return? 

Sounds like we'll find out soon.
