Team Ram Nation has advanced to the "Super 16" in this year's TBT and will take a group of VCU legends (with the help of some non-VCU alumni friends) to Brooklyn for a Friday night ESPN2 bit of July Madness. Ram Nation defeated two teams with an offensive explosion in Charlotte but are looking to add some defense to the mix.
Enter: Justin Tuoyo.
Tuoyo was recruited to VCU by Shaka Smart but transfered for more playing time after his freshman season, following Will Wade to UT Chattanooga. There with the Mocs Tuoyo exploded, earning First Team SoCon honors and winning Defensive Player of the Year in back-to-back seasons.
Tuoyo made the trip this past weekend to Charlotte to support his former Ram teammates, but we'd like him to make the trip to Brooklyn with us, but this time in uniform.
Via TBT rules however, the amount it costs to add players after each round increases. Since we've advanced to the round of 16, that amount is $3,000 (yikes!).
If you'd like to see Justin Tuoyo back and blocking shots in the black and gold, please consider making a donation to this campaign!
Note: If you are one of Justin's three former college coaches, you can donate anonymously if you'd like ;)
