The official Twitter account of the tournament announced the news: “They've brought together some of the best players in (Dayton basketball) history. Dozens of fans have endorsed them using the hashtag #TBTRecs. Next up? A trip to Columbus. We have officially ACCEPTED @FlyersTBT to play in #TBT2019.”
The team, nicknamed the Red Scare, was started by former Dayton walk-ons Joey Gruden and Jeremiah Bonsu. Seven players have committed to the roster: Kevin Dillard, Devin Oliver, Vee Sanford, Dyshawn Pierre, Kendall Pollard, Kyle Davis and Josh Cunningham. At least two more additions are expected.
