The NBA 2K tournament is back.

The University of Kentucky and partner Gen. G are bringing back the Hoops at Home NBA 2K Tournament.

Last year in the absence of college basketball, UK and Gen. G formed a 64-player field for the virtual tournament, allowing Kentucky fans over the age of 13 to interact in real-time with Kentucky players.

In the tournament’s debut run, former Wildcat Immanuel Quickley was the lucky winner, and he will return this year to defend his title against the BBN.

Quickley continues to have an outstanding rookie season with the New York Knicks alongside assistant coach Kenny Payne, putting up 12 points just last night in a victory over the Detroit Pistons. Quickley himself is now featured as a player in NBA 2K, alongside other Kentucky stars such as Anthony Davis and Devin Booker.

This year, the hopeful competitor against Quickley in the final round looks to win a $1,000 cash prize, among other prizes.

In order to register in the tournament, participants must be 13 years old or older, own a PlayStation4, and have the latest installment of NBA 2K21.

You can sign up here by April 6, with a Selection Show following on UK’s Twitch channel, where the tournament will be streamed, on April 7.

The tournament begins on April 9 with the Rounds of 64 and 32.

Happy gaming, BBN!
