U of L hoops alum competing for $1 million The Basketball Tournament

Former Louisville walk-on grad transfer Keith Oddo started his college basketball career at Richmond and was impressed with the Spiders’ foray into The Basketball Tournament the past two summers.

The $1 million winner-take-all tourney, referred to as TBT, features teams of college alumni and non-NBA-playing professionals in a single-elimination bracket. Oddo loved the camaraderie of Richmond’s alumni-driven team and initially thought about helping the Spiders’ group this summer. 

“That’s when I was like, ‘Let’s get this Louisville thing underway. We’ve got to get this team going,'” Oddo said.

Oddo is now the general manager and head coach of a Cardinals team that has yet to be named but will debut in a field of 64 TBT contenders. He was inspired to organize a U of L group as a tribute to the program, which gave him many good memories in 2019-20, and to reunite former Cardinals players.
