The Golden Eagles and Team CP3 will meet in the second round of TBT 2020. This will be the second game of the day on Monday, July 6th. The game is scheduled for a 9:00 PM EST start time and it will be televised on ESPN.
The Golden Eagles earned a bye in the first round of TBT, as they are the #4 seed in the tournament. The Golden Eagles are a Marquette alumni team, as they were the runner-ups of TBT 2020. The Golden Eagles have a star-studded lineup, headlined by two former NBA and international players. Dwight Buycks is one of the players everyone needs to watch out for in this tournament. He is the former French Pro A MVP, and he has a ton of skills that are perfect for a tournament like the TBT, which features some FIBA rules. Former Los Angeles Clipper, Jamil Wilson, is one of the big men for the Golden Eagles that can be a difference-maker from the starting tip-off.
Team CP3 had to play its way into the second round of TBT, as the #13 seed of the tournament took down Primetime Players in the first round. Team CP3's late-game finish ended night one of TBT in dramatic fashion, as its first-round game against Primetime had to be the most exciting of the entire night. Team CP3 will have a very tall task against the Golden Eagles, and they will have to start stronger than they did in their first-round game if they stand a chance.
The Golden Eagles know each other very well, so this is a team that should not show any rust at all when the game starts. Team CP3 has the advantage of getting a game in already, but I do not think that is going to matter much in this one. I think the Golden Eagles win this one in comfortable fashion, as a deep-run in this tournament could be in the near future. The Golden Eagles should win by at least double-digits in this second-round game, as the reigning runner-ups will want an easy victory in its first action in TBT 2020.
