The Basketball Tournament - Arkansas Alumni Team
« on: March 29, 2018, 03:10:32 pm »

So I posted about this last year, but it's bound to get more interest due to the roster being released and it not being put together by Nick Mason this year.

A team of former Razorbacks is planning to enter an open summer basketball tournament, which has been gaining a lot of interest in recent years.  Rosters/coaches are created by the team, and teams are made up current pro players, former pro players, college stars, and on some occasion even rec players that have been voted in.

This year the tournament will have 72 teams, and your team must be voted in to compete.  This is the fourth year, and the stakes are a $2 million winner take all price. The ESPN Network will be covering the action. 

This is the first year former Razorbacks have put together a team, but I have seen forme Hogs, such as Charles Thomas, Courtney Fortson, Jannero Pargo on other rosters in the past.

You can follow the Arkansas team on twitter here:
https://twitter.com/TeamArkansasTBT

And here is the link to vote and follow them:

Would be great if they played a couple tune up games in state before the actual tournament.  Will be fun watching them play.

Fingers crossed that the tenth player is Fortson. Last I heard he was tearing it up overseas. Would like to see him get after it again.

Fortson is averaging 32 pts, 12  ast, and 8 reb a game for the 1st place team in China, and was recently named league MVP. Would love to see him play with these guys, and get another NBA shot.

Good grief. I had no idea he was such a scorer. Pel or not, I remember how fun it was watching him play for the Hogs.

I want to get excited about this team, but then I realize they have all for the most part played together and not a single time could they get passé the 2nd round of he NCAA tourney. So what in the world makes you think they can beat teams from other programs with their best past  players?

This. You can stay in China, make great money and be loved ala Marbury or come back to the states and  get 10 days contracts and hope for a real contract.

He ruins everything.  I'd listen to the Morning Rush on a regular basis if he wasn't there.  I turn it on for 5 minutes, Nicks talking, change station.

I was following the Team Arkansas twitter account all week getting excited each time a new player was mentioned.  See his name associated with it today, and it's like OFFS why?

I know Nick Mason has been involved with a lot of the high school aged basketball in Arkansas but I don't know much else about him. Can someone enlighten me?

He was an Arkansas Razorback walkon for 3 seasons. Played 12 total minutes, and never made a basket. He is widely hated by members of Hogville due to his close relationship with Marcus Monk, his awful radio show, and a lot of people feel he just latches on to any high school basketball player with talent in the area. He also tries to put on tournaments/AAU events and make money off of these type things.

I'm sure he instantly contacted some guys on the team, not because they'd let him play, because he wants a piece of the pie.  Last year he & Rickey Scott half ass tried to do this same thing, and he couldn't drum up enough interest & votes to get in.

I guess we have to vote for them to be selected? Need everyone to show support to watch these guys play. WPS!

What teams get in?

It’s a 72-team field. Eighteen (18) teams will play in each of the four (4) regions: Northeast, Midwest, South, West.
•1. Nine (9) of those 18 will be automatically selected based on popularity (# of supporters on TheTournament.com as of June 1 at 12p ET)
•2. Four (4) "at-large" teams will be selected in each region. The "at-large" teams must meet the eligibility requirements outlined in the Rules
•3. Four (4) teams will be able to buy into each region for $5,000
•4. The final (1) slot in each region will go to that region’s defending champion

I'm not a fan of Nick Mason either, but he's not going to stop me from watching and supporting former Hog players.

Exactly.  The GM is their secretary.  The just gave it the name GM so it doesn't sound lame.

So basically you guys are not going to support former Hog greats because you don't like their secretary.  That's like someone saying they'll never shop at Wal-Mart again because someone they don't like got hired on as a cashier.

Concur with all above. Don't like Mason, but not going to stop supporting them because his name is associated with the team. They are already getting roasted on twitter for choosing him. Hard to believe they seemed to do everything right with this team and the last person announced, the secretary, who for whatever reason they postponed his announcement, is probably the least liked walkon in Arkansas history.

Why couldn't Kiko just have taken the role?

Voting has begun, link provided at top. Hopefully Nick Mason doesn't scare everyone away from supporting 10 great fromer Hogs!  The roster will update when the players confirm their commitment on the page, but we know who will be playing for them already due to twitter.

Isn't Kikko working on his doctorate?  That may be a little more important than making travel arrangements for a summer basketball tournament.  If Mason is willing to do all that extra work that no one else is willing to do, I say let him.  I know I'm going to have fun watching Brewer, Qualls, and Fortson all playing together, Nick Mason isn't going to affect my enjoyment of it in the least bit.

A plus for the team getting into the tourney is their booster, Keith Kelly, promoted a different team last year and they were the top vote getting team. His already doing a great job now. Arkansas is already over 200 supporters over the closest team.
