Team Wolf Blood is one of 64 squads competing in the 2021 edition of The Basketball Tournament, which while the worst-named basketball tournament in history, is nonetheless a cool event. This is a winner-take-all single-elimination tournament, with the champions taking home a million bucks.

The field was announced on Monday afternoon, and the team of Wolfpack alums landed as the No. 7 seed in the Columbus bracket, where it will open with a game against a team of Miami Hurricanes alums. Rather appropriate that some Wolfpack guys ended up a seven-seed in this thing, honestly.

Unless things have changed, Team Wolf Blood includes Richard Howell, Cat Barber, Scott Wood, Malik Abu, Trevor Lacey, Torin Dorn, and Terry Henderson. It’ll be exciting to watch those guys play together, for however long they’re in the field.

Wolf Blood’s tournament opener is scheduled for Saturday, July 24, at 1 p.m. ET. You’ll be able to watch that one on ESPN3, and if our Pack pals advance, they’ll be on ESPN in the following round. The full television schedule for the Columbus bracket is here.
