Boeheim’s Army General Manager Kevin Belbey calls in to discuss the team’s chase for The Basketball Tournament’s championship with host Wes Cheng. The Juice Online’s Brad Bierman then calls in to discuss Tyus Battle returning to Syracuse.

Here are the highlights from the show:

Wes Cheng: Boeheim’s Army is back for The Basketball Tournament chasing the grand prize of $2 million starting July 20 in Brooklyn. How excited are you and the rest of the team to get back into it?

Kevin Belbey: It’s awesome. Every summer we have such a blast doing it. Last year, we got so close, made it to the final four, and lost to the eventual champion, Overseas Elite, by just four points. We’re bringing back a team this year, that I feel, and we all feel, is stronger than last year’s roster. The sky’s the limit. We really think this can be the group that wins the $2 million.
