The Marquette Golden Eagles alumni team knocked off Sideline Cancer 78-73 in the $1 million TBT championship game Tuesday night in Columbus, Ohio.
Travis Diener hit the game-winning three-pointer to lead the Golden Eagles to their first TBT title. It comes after Marquette lost in the title game a year ago.
Darius Johnson-Odom was named to TBT’s All-Tournament Team and given TBT MVP for his efforts in the win, tallying 15 points and three assists. Jamil Wilson, who joins Johnson-Odom on the All-Tournament Team, finished with 16 points and five rebounds.
Tuesday’s championship game concluded the 24-team event that began July 4, making TBT the first nationally-televised basketball tournament to be completed in the United States since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
