There were no sports last summer until TBT, and then House of ‘Paign, Illinois’ alumni basketball team, brought us back to life.
And now, they’ll be back in 2021.
According to Malcolm Hill on Inside TBT podcast, House of ‘Paign will be officially returning to The Basketball Tournament field this summer.

There’s still a lot of unknowns about this summer’s tournament, including if it will be in a bubble like last summer, how many teams will play, and where it will be played (with Champaign still as a possibility).
We also don’t know who will be on Mike LaTulip’s team, which last year included Hill, Andres Feliz, Leron Black, Michael Finke, and some non-Illini, like heartthrob Mike Daum.
Whatever happens, we’ll have you covered here. Let’s bring the paign.
