The games are five-on-five. Anyone older than 18 is eligible, and most teams are made up of guys who played for the same college program or grew up in the same city. It is broadcast and streamed by ESPN. The winning team takes home a prize of $2 million.Teams enter through a variety of avenues. Nine teams in each of the four regions are chosen strictly by fan voting. Boeheim’s Army was one of the top vote-getters in the northeast region. Six more are at-large teams, meaning they met certain requirements, including the minimum of 100 fans and seven players. The final team in each region competed in a play-in tournament, called TBT Jamboree.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMeet the squadNew members of Boeheim’s Army include Trevor Cooney, John Gillon, Scoop Jardine and DaShonte Riley. Altogether, the roster includes eight current pros. Also playing are current SU assistant Eric Devendorf, C.J. Fair, Rick Jackson, Donte Greene, James Southerland and Brandon Triche.
