Last night, Aaron Craft and some fellow Ohio State alums captured the championship of The Basketball Tournament, winning $2 million in the process.
Over the weekend, Craft’s team Carmen’s Crew took down the four-time defending TBT champs, Overseas Elite. They snapped Overseas Elite’s 29-game TBT win streak in the process.
Last night, Carmen’s Crew beat the Golden Eagles, a team primarily of former Marquette players, to win the title. Craft contributed seven points, five rebounds and four assists in 31 minutes.
Afterwards, he posted a heartfelt message that Buckeye fans will love on Twitter.
“Man, winning with these guys is so much fun! Love playing with them!Thanks @thetournament and their staff for giving us this opportunity. Unreal feeling!! #OH,” he wrote.

Craft teamed up with former Ohio State players such as William Buford (the MVP of the tournament), David Lighty, Jon Diebler, LaQuinton Ross and Evan Ravenel. One has to expect they will defend their title next summer.
During the winter, the 28-year-old Craft played last season in Italy. He’s also played in Monaco and the NBDL.
