Carmen's Crew, basketball team of Ohio State alumni, not competing in 2022 TBT
Carmen’s Crew, a popular summer basketball team made up of Ohio State alumni, will not be playing in 2022. Fortunately, it sounds like the group is aiming for a one-year hiatus.
Carmen’s Crew has participated in The Basketball Tournament every year since 2017. TBT is a $1 million winner-take-all tournament played during the summer.
Jared Sullinger, former Ohio State star, shared the news on Twitter:
“Carmen’s Crew fans, we’re disappointed to share that we will be unable to compete in TBT this summer,” Sullinger wrote. “Since 2017, we’ve greatly enjoyed the opportunity to get back together and represent The Ohio State University, and we look forward to doing it again in 2023.”

Sullinger serves as the head coach of Carmen’s Crew and the team won the tournament in 2019. Aaron Craft was named to the all-tournament team in 2019 with William Buford earning all-tournament and MVP honors that season.
The team made it to the regional semifinals in 2021. Hopefully the team will be back in action for 2023.
