The creatively titled “The Basketball Tournament” has been around since 2014. In the event, 72 teams, consisting mostly of former college basketball players, compete in a single elimination tournament with $2 million on the line.
Once again this season, a team known as “Few Good Men” will be a part of that. Made up of mostly former Gonzaga players, they’re letting a former WSU guard into the mix this year. According to the Spokesman Review, DaVonte Lacy will be a part of the team’s roster later this month.
Lacy, along with former Eastern Washington Eagle Jacob Wiley, are set to join the squad made up of Matt Bouldin, Steven Gray, Sam Dower, Casey Calvary and more.
Lacy was a four-year starter at WSU. He made his mark on the team’s record books, putting up a program record 249 3-pointers. Lacy averaged 19.4 points per game as a junior and nearly 17 points as a senior in 2015.
Few Good Men will be one of four teams playing in the inaugural Hoopfest West Regional pod. First round games will take place on Hoopfest weekend on June 29 and 30 at Lewis & Clark High School in Spokane. The games will be broadcast on ESPN3.
