Eberlein Drive’s chance at the $2-million winner-take-all payday came to an end in the finals of The Basketball Tournament with a 70-58 loss to Overseas Elite, which won the event for a fourth straight year. Matt Mitchell, a Blackhawk Christian graduate, is general manager of the Drive and was charged with putting together the team that had former NBA players like James Michael McAdoo and Willie Reed. The game, televised on ESPN, was in Baltimore. The Drive was a No. 7 seed. Overseas Elite was a No. 1 seed.
