They have had a tradition of success averaging over two wins each year. Last year they bowed out as a 15-seed against typical powerhouse and former champion Overseas Elite 76-60 in the opening round.
Like each year, this year’s team will be well-prepared to win games. They feature several players with past NBA experience, namely Malcolm Miller, Xavier Rathan-Mayes, and Jemerrio Jones.

Sean Armand is a pro’s pro, who averaged 22 points a game in the 2018 The Basketball Tournament and played in France the past two seasons. He was a top-10 scorer in the league each season.

When you add the scoring of Rathan-Mayes and Jones and the experience from the coaching staff to the rest of the roster, their 4-seed is well-deserved and this is a team that could play itself into the second weekend or beyond.
