An alumni team of your Georgetown Hoyas, led by Chris Wright, have joined The Basketball Tournament (TBT) this summer. They are called Dawg Town and will play today, Tuesday July 25th, at 2PM on ESPN+ against 3-seed Challenge ALS: Florida, in West Virginia.
The roster looks solid, with Wright, Henry Sims, Jason Clark, Aaron Bowen, Jagan Mosely, D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera, Julian Vaughn, Greg Whittington, Rodney Pryor, and Jerelle Benimon playing. The roster page has confirmed that Austin Freeman will be coaching.
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 about Dawg Town on Instagram on May 11th (explicit lyrics in the opening song, so lower those speakers).
Wright previously explained that the TBT Dawg Town team is a different entity from the DawgTalk team of the Alumni Basketball League.
