Background  

It wouldn’t be TBT without Sideline Cancer. GM Billy Clapper and company are just one of four teams (Illinois Hoopville Warriors, Air Force Bomb Squad and Showtime) to compete in all four tournaments. And once again the loveable group of overseas professionals will be playing in part for the Greg & Cathy Griffith Family Foundation, which is dedicated to finding a cure for pancreatic cancer.

The team’s best performance came in 2015 when they made a run to the Super 16. Although they were bounced in the first-round last summer by The Untouchables, Sideline Cancer has a reputation as one of the most gritty, defensive oriented teams in all of TBT.

The team enters TBT 2017 with unquestionably their deepest roster yet. Sideline Cancer mainstay Jarryd Cole (Iowa) is joined by fellow Hawkeye alum Anthony Clemons, West Virginia/St. Joseph’s product Aaron Brown and Penn State/Arizona State standout Jermaine Marshall.

No matter what happens on the court, Sideline Cancer will be remembered as one of the big winners in TBT 2017.
