B2B2B Socks It To The Bay
If anyone ever needed evidence TQL people are self-motivated individuals, they need look no further than the socks.
National 3-on-3 basketball tournament emcee and analyst Ralph Lee announced teams reaching the Sweet 16 would receive a pair of TQL athletic socks. He earned the kind of cheers usually reserved for a conquering Roman general.
Cheering for socks? Giddy up, fellas.
Back to Back to Back has higher aspirations than footwear. The three-time defending champs held off The Bay (Tampa) in the feature game of the evening; Chuck S. went on a five-point tear in a two-minute span to earn Ralph’s MVP honors.
Other second-round winners included The Dirty Three 30s (Akron), FCFS (Cleveland), Team Detroit, Splash Brothers (Lexington), Patrick Ewing All-Stars (Ivy), The Beeb’s (Ivy) and Hustlers (Cincy West).
