Ram Nation TBT 2017

For the second consecutive year Ram Nation will bring together a group of VCU legends (and friends) in hopes of making a run to a TBT Championship. 

Last year's group earned two hard-fought wins in Charlotte, NC, advancing to The Basketball Tournament's "Super 16" round and an appearance on ESPN2 before ultimately falling to the eventual TBT champ, Overseas Elite. This year, armed with an even better (and deeper) roster, we look to go all the way, bringing a summer basketball championship back to VCU. But we need your help. 

This year the TBT has adjusted their rules. Teams must pay $1,000 per player beyond the first nine free roster spots. This GoFundMe campaign was created to help us get our expanded roster of 12 players into this year's TBT field, then to help pay for travel expesnes through the first two rounds (which are 100% on teams to cover). Last year injuries and lack of depth inside ultimately ended our run. We don't plan on making the same mistake again.

This year's roster...

Eric Maynor (VCU '09)
Juvonte Reddic (VCU '14)
Jamal Shuler (VCU '08)
Jordan Burgess (VCU '17)
Jamie Skeen (VCU '11)
B.A. Walker (VCU '07)
Jesse Pellot-Rosa (VCU '07)
Brandon Rozzell (VCU '11)
Reggie Williams (VMI '08)
Romeo Travis (Akron '07)
Dion Wright (St. Bonaventure '16)
Denzel Bowles (JMU '11)

and coaches...

Joey Rodriguez (VCU '11)
Bradford Burgess (VCU '11)
Corey Coffer (VCU '11)

Booster: Calvin Duncan (VCU '85)

We are super thankful for all the amazing fans that helped support our run this past summer. We hope to see many of those same faces in the stands in both Charlotte and Brooklyn during this year's TBT.
