Former Siena Saints Look To Team Up In $1 Million TBT Tournament
- Updated: April 7, 2015
Former Siena Saints Kenny Hasbouck, Ryan Rossiter and Ronald Moore will team up once again to participate in The Basketball Tournament (TBT), a 5-on-5, single elimination, winner-take-all event scheduled for this summer. Now in its second year, the TBT awarded a Grand Prize of $500,000 to the winning team in 2014. This year the prize is $1 million!
Up to 96 teams plus the 2014 defending champions, Notre Dame Fighting Alumni will participate in this year’s event. Eighteen teams with the most fan votes in each region as of June 1st will get in with 6 additional teams in each region getting an at-large bid. This is where Siena fans come in. The guys need your help.
In order to qualify, teams need to have a minimum of 100 fans registered on The Tournament website. The 18 teams with the most fan votes in each region as of June 1st will get in. Six additional teams in each region will receive at-large bids. Saints fans can make this happen by joining Liberty Ballers and then spreading the word. Fans of the winning team who register and help to recruit others to as well, will be eligible to win cash prizes.
Antonio Pena, a 6-8 power forward and former Villanova Wildcat ’11 is also on the Liberty Ballers roster. Pena is currently playing with Nuernberg of the German Pro A league averaging 11 points and 5.7 rebounds per game. More roster signings will be announced soon.

In 2015, 96 teams will compete across four regions: South (Atlanta), Midwest (Chicago), West (Los Angeles), and Northeast (Philadelphia). Four teams from each region will advance to the Super 17 in Chicago (July 23-25), joining the Notre Dame Fighting Alumni, who receive automatic entry and a 2 round bye for winning last year. The four remaining teams will head to New York for the semifinals on Saturday August 1 (ESPN) and the championship game on Sunday August 2 (ESPN).
In last year’s 32-team TBT, Hasbrouck, Rossiter and Moore’s team advanced to the round of 16 before being eliminated in a narrow 76-75 loss to Big Apple Basketball, who later advanced to the semifinals.
