Jordan Bruner Shows Out in TBT
Former Alabama and Yale basketball standout Jordan Bruner had a much needed bounce back game in the annual The Basketball Tournament in Syracuse last night.
The Basketball Tournament is a tournament played every summer in the United States, made up of 64 teams with a $1 million winner-take-all prize.
Bruner is competing for The Nerd Team in the Syracuse region of the tournament and has had an inconsistent tournament so far.
In his The Basketball Tournament debut he had 0 points in 14 minutes going 0-2 from the field and 0-1 from three with two rebounds. The Nerd Team was victorious however as they defeated Brown & White 79-71.
The South Carolina native had a better showing in his second appearance for The Nerd Team, finishing with 13 points,7 boards and 2 assists while shooting a perfect 4-4 from three while leading the charge of a 81-74 win against the defending champions Boeheim's Army.
Bruner played only one season at Alabama after transferring from Yale in 2020-21 season. The First-team All Ivy League selection averaged only 5.6 points per game, 3.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists while shooting 43 percent from the floor and 32 percent from three.
The former Ivy League standout and The Nerd Team will be back in action tomorrow playing in the regional finals with the winner advancing to the Elite Eight.
