TBT’s Team Fredette got a lot stronger today with the addition of former BYU big man Brandon Davies.
Davies took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to announce that he would be joining his former Cougar teammates, Jimmer Fredette and Charles Abouo to compete in the 72-team tournament with the $2,000,000 prize.
The announcement comes just five days after Davies tweeted out that if he added 1,000 new followers on Twitter in the next week then he would play in the tournament.
Davies, who is in his second year with Team Fredette, is joining an already loaded roster featuring Fredette, Abouo and former New Mexico star, Darrington Hobson.
Team Fredette is the No. 2 seed in the Midwest and will play on July 21, 2018, in Columbus, OH against the winner of a play-in game.
