TBT CHAMPIONSHIP WEEK

There's plenty to do in Chicago during the summer time. You can take a long stroll down the riverwalk. You can eat as much deep dish pizza until your heart's content. But most importantly, you can watch the final eight TBT teams duke it out for the $2 million prize at Wintrust Arena. TBT will be playing its quarterfinals, semifinals, and championship game all in Chicago from August 1-6, meaning one team will leave the Windy City with an extra seven figures lining their pocket. TBT is no stranger to the magic of Chi-Town, having brought the Midwest Regionals there (in 2015 and 2016), as well as the Super 17 and Quarterfinals (in 2015) - which produced some of TBT's biggest moments, including Eric Atkins' buzzer-beating layup to help then reigning champion, Notre Dame Fighting Alumni, defeat Midwest Dream Squad.  Between TBT's history in the city and eight teams so close to the $2 million prize they can taste it, expect a week of can't-miss basketball in Chicago.
