The Basketball Tournament is underway, and the Villanova Wildcats alumni team Supernova will take on Team Fancy in the second round of the Northeast region this afternoon in an attempt to move on to the Super 16 in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Supernova opened TBT last night with an impressive 97-72 win over South Jamaica Kings. Malcolm Grant can still cook, if you were wondering. He led the way with 21 points, 2 assists and 5 rebounds. Scottie Reynolds chipped in with 15 points on 5 3-pointers and Mo Sutton recorded a double-double with 16 points and 13 rebounds.
I watched bits and parts of the game and this is a really fun roster. I encourage you all to tune in if you can. They’ve got size in Sutton, Isaiah Armwood and Darryl Reynolds, good mid-range players in Shane Clark, JayVaughn Pinkston and Reggie Redding and a trio of the most exciting guards we’ve known in recent years with Scottie Reynolds, Corey Fisher and Malcolm Grant.
The win means Supernova will take on Team Fancy this afternoon. Fancy was purported to feature former ‘Nova star Allan Ray, but he didn’t participate in the opening game and may not be on the roster after-all.
Here’s how you can watch the game this afternoon. Feel free to use this as your open thread for the game.
