Red Scare and House of 'Paign will meet on Friday, July 10th for the quarterfinals of TBT (the basketball tournament) 2020. This game is scheduled for a 4:00 PM EST start time and it will be televised on ESPN. Red Scare is the #8 seed, while House of 'Paign is the #16 seed.
Red Scare defeated Big X in the second round of the tournament by the final score of 77-68. Big X was leading this game by five at halftime and held that lead up until the few minutes before the Elam Ending. Red Scare caught fire, playing fantastic defense and knocking in a lot of its shots (many from three-point land). It was not the prettiest win by any means, but for Red Scare's first game of TBT 2020, they will certainly take it. Red Scare cannot start this quarterfinal game as sloppy as they did against Big X, as House of 'Paign has proven that they can take advantage of any of its opponent's mistakes.
House of 'Paign is making a name for itself in TBT 2020, as what team is more fun to watch? House of 'Paign took down the #1 seed and reigning champions of this tournament, Carmen's Crew, in the second round of the tournament. This was Carmen's Crew's first and last game in TBT 2020, as House of 'Paign pulled off one of the biggest upsets in tournament history. Mike Daum had yet another stellar performance in that game, as he was 3-3 from three-point range, scored 23 points, and earned eight rebounds in the win. House of 'Paign was trailing by five at halftime, but that did not worry the team whatsoever. House of 'Paign will most likely be the favorites in this game, as even though they are the #16 seed and Red Scare is the #8, House of 'Paign has two big wins to show for it.
In my humble opinion, Big X should have won that game against Red Scare. Mistakes and fouls cost Big X that game, so I would say that Big X lost rather than Red Scare won. Red Scare did not really impress me, at least not as much as House of 'Paign has thus far. I am going to take House of 'Paign to win and move on to the semifinals of TBT 2020.
