Singletary, Reynolds reuniting on UVA Alum team in TBT

UVA AthleticsSean Singletary and J.R. Reynolds will be teaming up again on a team of UVA Basketball alums competing in The Basketball Tournament this summer.

Singletary and Reynolds, the backcourt duo that led Virginia to the 2007 NCAA Tournament, will team up with Akil Mitchell and Darion Atkins, who were key players on the ‘Hoos team that won the 2014 ACC Tournament.

A complete roster for the team will be announced in the near future.

The team is partnering with Hoops2o, a non-profit clean water program founded by former Virginia two-time All-American and current NBA star Malcolm Brogdon (Indiana).

The UVA TBT team will dedicate a portion of the prize from the tournament to fund clean water projects in East Africa.

TBT is a 64-team tournament with a winner-take-all $2 million prize.
