The Basketball Tournament is just around the corner, but rosters are hardly ever set for the winner-take-all annual tournament that the Ohio State alumni team known as Carmen’s Crew showcases itself in. In fact, two bits of roster news became available on Thursday.

First, we reported that the team added former Buckeye forward Kosta Koufos to the mix. His game should mix well in tournament play with his size and ability to shoot the ball. But, in addition to that, team manager Jared Sullinger announced on Twitter that former OSU big man Kaleb Wesson will not play with the team because of an opportunity he has been provided to play in the NBA Summer League.

This comes just a couple of months after Wesson’s addition to the roster was announced. But hey, you certainly can’t blame a guy who’s trying to get his career off the ground to take an opportunity to play against NBA competition.

Wesson would have been a great addition to the team because of his ability to body up in the post and provide some offense on the blocks. That now will be left to returning guys like Jeff Gibbs and Evan Ravenel, in combination with newcomer Julian Mavunga.

Carmen’s Crew is set to begin the next TBT journey on Friday, July 23, at the Covelli Center on the campus of The Ohio State University.
