Dear Fellow Johnnies,



On Friday, August 3, Overseas Elite defeated Eberlein Drive, 70-58, to win a fourth-straight The Basketball Tournament (TBT) championship.



Who is Overseas Elite you may ask? Well, they are led by former Red Storm players D.J. Kennedy (who was named MVP), Justin Burrell and Paris Horne. Overseas Elite is now a remarkable 25-0 over the last four summers.



The TBT has grown into a $2 million summer winner-take-all tournament televised by ESPN with a virtual Who's Who of former collegiate stars, multiple former NBA players and current professional players from around the world. It has even rivaled the NBA Summer League in interest, enthusiasm and competition.



After graduating St. John's in 2011 as part of the Redeem Team that brought the Red Storm back to the NCAA Tournament, D.J., Justin and Paris have successfully navigated professional basketball careers.



And they have never forgotten their St. John's roots. It seems like it was only yesterday that they were incoming freshmen.



So on behalf of Johnnies Nation, a special thanks and congratulations to D.J., Justin and Paris for again proving that St. John's produces amazing players on an off the hardwood. We look forward to seeing you back at alma mater!



We Are New York's Team ... We Are St. John's!



In gratitude,



Nick J. Vendikos '91SVC
