Last year, The Basketball Tournament really took off, with teams from across the country playing for a $1 million cash prize. Many of the top teams in the field are primarily comprised of alumni of some of college basketball's most proud programs. This year, Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky, Syracuse, and Villanova are all teams well represented in the 60-team field.

Here are some of the alumni team rosters, as well as the other notable former college stars from across the country.Next: ACC Alumni >>>ACC Alumni:Boston College and Syracuse have the two alumni teams in the league, but Miami is very well-represented, and a few recent Louisville stars are playing for the Talladega Knights.
