Less than two weeks ago, former BYU basketball player Brandon Davies told BYU Sports Nation he is leaning toward playing for Team Fredette in this year’s The Basketball Tournament.
The team is captained by former Cougar teammate Jimmer Fredette, who will play this year after coaching the team last year in the national 5-on-5 basketball tournament. Former BYU player Charles Abouo will also be playing for Team Fredette, which plays its first-round game July 21.
Davies recently helped lift his Lithuanian team, Zalgiris Kaunuas, to victory over Lietuvos Ryas to clinch the LKL championship, and he told BYU Sports Nation his decision whether to play in the TBT tournament would depend on how his body is feeling.
On Friday, Davies tweeted that he’d play if he could get 1,000 new Twitter followers in a week’s time.
?????????? If I get 1000 new followers this week, I’ll play with .@jimmerfredette and .@CharlesAbouo1 in this years @thetournament #BYUalum
