An alumni team of your Georgetown Hoyas, led by Chris Wright, will be joining The Basketball Tournament (TBT) this summer. They will be called Dawg Town!
The roster (thus far) looks great, with Wright, Jason Clark, D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera, Aaron Bowen, Rodney Pryor, Greg Whittington, Henry Sims and Julian Vaughn playing, and Austin Freeman coaching. Jagan Mosely is also reportedly involved. Greg Monroe apparently needs more convincing, so feel free to encourage M10OSE.

Trying to get Monroe, also wants Hopkins
Some of these guys were on Jack Attack in the TBT a few years ago, as well as Wright and Freeman playing for DMV’s Finest on a finals run. Wright made the announcement on Instagram on May 11th (explicit lyrics in the opening song, so lower those speakers).
TBT is a 64-team, single-elimination tournament for a million dollars. Application is open to all. Our 2022 event took place in July & August, airing on ESPN. TBT 2023 will be our 10th anniversary tournament and will be played in eight different cities around the country this upcoming summer. Get your tickets now!
Wright explains that the TBT Dawg Town team is a different entity from the DawgTalk team of the Alumni Basketball League.
