The Bluegrass Boys just added some premium denim to this summer’s roster. Josh Harrellson is joining the Kentucky alumni team for The Basketball Tournament (TBT) to compete for the $2 million grand prize.

The Bluegrass Boys will serve as the host team for the Lexington Regional. Games will take place July 19-21 at Frederick Douglass High School and air live on the ESPN networks.
