Fort Wayne Champs not in The Basketball Tournament

JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

The Fort Wayne Champs basketball team won’t participate in the $2-million winner-take-all The Basketball Tournament, after coming up just short in fan voting for an automatic bid and

not being granted at at-large bid. The Champs’ roster was to have several players with Mad Ants ties, including Trey McKinney Jones, Stephan Hicks and Tra-Deon Hollins. The team had reached the semifinals in 2015 and also participated in 2016 and 2017.
