Carmen’s Crew is the number one ranked team in this tournament, made up mostly of players who played their college basketball with the Ohio State Buckeyes. Seven of the players on this squad played for the Buckeyes. Some of the star power on this team includes William Bufford, Aaron Craft, Jon Diebler, Deshaun Thomas, and Jared Sullinger. Sullinger played two seasons at Ohio State averaging 17.3 points and 6.4 rebounds. 

This is a perfect type of tournament for Aaron Craft who might not have the flashiest stats, but he is a pesky player and will try to work under the skin of the players from House of ‘Paign. Buford is another player who is going to be counted on to have a big role in this game. At Ohio State, Buford averaged 13.7 points per game.

House of ‘Paign is a team made up mostly of players that played for the Illinois Fighting Illini, and they already came away with a win. In their first game of the tournament, they were able to beat War of Tampa. 

The star of the team in the first game didn’t play his college ball at Illinois. Mike Daum played his college ball at South Dakota State and in the first game he put up 21 points and seven rebounds. Andres Feliz also played well putting up 20 points and seven rebounds. 

In terms of talent Carmen’s Crew is probably better, but House of ‘Paign looked really good in the first game of this tournament. Mike Daum is going to have another big game and although they might not pull off the upset, they are going to do enough to cover the spread. It wouldn’t be that surprising if they did end up pulling off the upset outright.
