TBT Basketball Question

Wasn’t there some chatter somewhere regarding some UVA Alums playing in this tournament? Or is this my sports deprived mind playing tricks on me?

Do you see it happening in a non-COVID type scenario? Perhaps overseas guys and such.

Was really looking forward to see who the alumni team brought it. But think it was the right choice to hold off a year

Which guys had committed to play this year?

Me too. Wouldn’t want it in college or the NBA but love it for this tourney. Would like to see it used in AAU just to keep games on schedule.

I’m all-in on it, especially after how it worked out at the NBA All-Star Game this season. I like that it means that teams always play real basketball up to the end of games, and not free throw shooting contests. And while buzzer beaters are cool, they’re not common, and there’s still a lot of good pressure packed moments when both teams can win the game with their next shot.
