POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- A basketball team made up of former Vassar College athletes needs votes to make it into a tournament.

The Vassar Roses is made up of eight former Vassar athletes who hope to be in The Basketball Tournament.

The tournament is an open invitation, winner-take-all 64-team event with a $2 million grand prize.

There will current pros and former NBA players on the roster of The Basketball Tournament.

In order for the Vassar Roses to get accepted into the event, they need to finish as one of the top 16 vote-getters in the East Region.

The team will be coached by current Vassar head coach B.J. Dunne, who is younger than every member of the Roses roster.

The players that have agreed to participate in the event:

  • Will Kieffer '07
  • Evan Hannay '07
  • Joe Ward '07
  • Tyson Brazell '08
  • Matt Nunn '09
  • Lenny Holt '09
  • Lawrence Avitabile '08, the best player in the history of the Vassar program

Dauster created the team and is the General Manager.
