Anyone who can remember back to Susquehanna Township’s 2008-09 State Championship run can’t forget 6’6 Guard/Forward Greg Edwards.
Greg was a huge part of the Indians run and at 6’6 his ability to stretch the floor made the Indians almost un-stoppable.
Check out some clips from High School below of Edwards (#22) leading the Indians to a 102 -38 win over Palmyra.
TBT features 72 teams of top professional, college alumni, and international basketball players competing in a single-elimination 5-on-5 tournament for a winner-take-all $2 Million prize. All 72 games will air on ESPN networks beginning Friday, June 29, culminating with the championship game on Friday, August 3 live at 9:00 pm ET on ESPN.
Greg is originally from Queens, NY so it makes sense why he would be apart of the South Jamaica Kings. Last year they were eliminated in the first round but Edwards was not a member of that team.
The highly-competitive tournament has attracted some of the best basketball players in the world. In 2017, Overseas Elite won for the third year in a row. Teams compete for spots in the tournament by soliciting votes from fans and supporters via social media. Applicants must be 18 or older and willing to forego their amateur status.

Allan Thomas poured in a game-high 29 points to lead the South Jamaica Kings past the Philadelphia Stars, 73-68. Jordan Washington chipped in with 19 points for the victors, who won despite making just two of 20 three-pointers. Deshon Minnis led the way for the Stars, scoring a team-high 19 points.
