Overseas Elite and Team Colorado To Face Off in TBT 2016 Championship Game 

The defending champions were on the ropes in the first half against City of Gods, but an incredible shooting performance from Kyle Fogg brought Overseas Elite to the Championship Game for the second straight year. Marcus Hall carried Team Colorado, dropping 25 points on Always a Brave, who seemed to be out of sync for the majority of the game after losing talismanic point guard Daniel Ruffin to injury. 

Oversease Elite and Team Colorado will face off TUESDAY AUGUST 2 at 7pm (ET) on ESPN with the winner taking home $2,000,000 and the loser going home empty-handed. | WatchESPN | TICKETS 

South vs. Northeast 

Oversease Elite 103 City of Gods 92

Kyle Fogg’s 42 Points Puts Overseas Elite 1 Win Away From Going Back to Back

Overseas Elite defeated City of Gods for the second semifinal in a row in a matchup that lived up to the advanced billing. Kyle Fogg led the way for the defending champs with 42 points on 12-16 shooting, including 7-8 from 3 as Overseas Elite moved one win away from going back to back in TBT. The game was tied at the half, but Overseas Elite’s transition defense and Fogg’s lights out shooting resulted in a 42-12 run, which proved to be too much for City of Gods. Despite a furious comeback late in the game that cut the lead to 7 points with under 2 minutes to play and 22 points from Lasan Kromah, City of Gods fell short again.

 

West vs. Midwest 

Team Colorado 78 Always a Brave 70

Hall Leads the Charge as Colorado Advances to TBT 2016’s Championship Game

Marcus Hall continued getting buckets for the University of Colorado alums as Team Colorado downed mid-major darlings Always a Brave, 78-70 before a raucous crowd at Fordham’s Rose Hill Gym in the Bronx, NY. Hall scored 25, for a tournament leading 120 total points through 5 games. The Bradley alums suffered a huge loss early in the game, as team leader Daniel Ruffin went down with an Achilles injury only 5 minutes in, but Always a Brave hung tough behind a team high 16 points from Jeremy Crouch.
