What if I told you there was a place you could watch all of these Kansas State greats play in a tournament this weekend?

Thomas Gipson
Jordan Henriquez
Martavious Irving
Jacob Pullen
Wally Judge
Curtis Kelly
Lance Harris
Jamar Samuels
Dominique Sutton
Akeem Wright
Nino Williams

No, this isn't a 30 for 30, but what exactly is going on here?

Is this a time capsule of Kansas State Men’s Basketball that we have stumbled upon? Nope, it’s The Basketball Tournament (TBT) that boasts anyone can enter, anyone can win the $2 million dollar prize. No big deal, right? These Kansas State alum assembled a fantastic team that plays in Chicago this weekend and yours truly will be there covering the event.

Purple and Black will take the floor at around 2:15pm CT on Saturday, facing off against the 13-seed The Region. A win Saturday would set up a Sunday matchup with (probably) Pedro's Posse, a team featuring Mike Bibby and Jason Williams. Intriguing. Win both, and they're off to Philadelphia. Coverage of the Chicago regional will be on Facebook Live.

This will be the most exciting Kansas State Men’s Basketball event all year. Yes, including the upcoming season this fall. Looking forward to seeing the Kansas State #FAMILY out in Chicago! Go Cats!
