The Fort Wayne Champs are back at it.

Nine professional basketball players, including several former Mad Ants, teaming up to represent the Summit City. They're playing in what's called 'The Basketball Tournament' for the fourth straight year. It's a single-elimination, winner-take-all tourney. The last team standing walks away with two million dollars in cash.

Last year, the Champs were bounced in the second round. Many of those guys are back to give it another go this summer. The roster features familiar faces like Trey McKinney Jones, Tra-Deon Hollins, Stephan Hicks, and many more.

The Champs will open tournament play on Saturday in Columbus, Ohio.
