Lexington Regional Final for The Basketball Tournament is Set

The Fort Wayne Champs have just knocked out team D2 in a nail-bitter that squeezed every ounce of excitement it could out of the Elam Ending. Fort Wayne was led by 17 points from former Georgia Bulldog Travis Leslie and now advance to the final game on Sunday where they will face Loyalty is Love, managed by DeMarcus Cousins.

The winner of Loyalty is Love and the Fort Wayne Champs will advance to the next stage in Chicago, which takes place in early August. They will take on the winner of the Richmond Regional.

If you didn’t get to watch the games earlier, update your knowledge with this highlight package from Saturday’s matchups.

Headlined by several borderline NBA players, Loyalty is Love should be the overwhelming favorite heading into Sunday. The talent and size from top to bottom have proven to be a massive issue for the two teams that have already failed to take them down.

“We still got some work to do,” Darius Johnson-Odom said after scoring 20 points for Loyalty is Love on Saturday. “You know we’re a new team, it’s our first time playing with each other. So we’re just trying to work on chemistry… I think we got a pretty good chance [to win on Sunday].”

The final game will be broadcast Sunday on ESPN at 2 p.m. EST.
