Overseas Elite 3-Peats at TBT

In the most memorable championship game of The Basketball Tournament yet, the heavily-favored Overseas Elite defeated this year’s Cinderella team, Team Challenge ALS, to win their third straight TBT crown and the $2 million prize. Team Challenge ALS had a shot to tie the game, but Kevinn Pinkney missed a tough three as time expired. Kyle Fogg led Overseas Elite with a game-high 29 points en route to his second consecutive MVP award.

With the win, Overseas Elite has now banked $5 million from just three summers of competition, and will be eager to defend their title next year.

Full recap, box score and video highlights for tonight’s game is available at www.thetournament.com.

High School Sophomore Pulls Up and Takes Shots from Half Court

And he makes them...

LaMelo Ball is a high school basketball phenom who committed to play for UCLA at the age of 13,and he's still just a sophomore at Chino Hills High School in California. During a recent game, he reminded everyone why, by casually telling the dude guarding him that he was gonna hit a half-court shot, before sinking it mid-game.
