TBT basketball tournament to be played in Las Vegas

Updated February 18, 2020 - 6:27 am

The Basketball Tournament, also known as TBT, will play one of its eight regionals at Cox Pavilion on July 24-26.

TBT, which has included current and former NBA players, is a 64-team league made up of eight regions. The winner of each region earns $20,000 and will compete in Dayton, Ohio, for a winner-take-all $2 million prize on Aug. 6-11.

TBT uses the “Elam Ending” rules in which teams try to reach a target score in the fourth quarter rather than play with a clock. The NBA All-Star Game used those rules Sunday, which generated much interest and created a competitive game decided by an Anthony Davis free throw.
