If you have been spending the summer in New York, then you are probably already tired of the heat. The forecast for this weekend does not look any more promising. For those of you who aren't beach people and rather be inside, the Rumble has you covered.
This upcoming weekend, Fordham University will be hosting the semifinals and the finals of The Basketball Tournament. The Basketball Tournament is a single elimination basketball tournament for $1,000,000 that originally began with 97 teams. More than 125 players with NBA or NBA D-League experience have already participated in the tournament.
It just so happens that a team featuring former Johnnies D.J. Kennedy and Paris Horne has advanced to the final four. Their team, Overseas Elite, will face Baltimore's City of Gods, who are led by former Knick and Georgetown standout Michael Sweetney.
Fans can use code TBT5A when purchasing tickets and they'll get in for $5 (tickets at the door range from $20-$50.) Here's a link to tickets: http://bit.ly/TBT-tix.
