The Fort Wayne Champs, a team comprised of several former and current Mad Ants, are heading to Atlanta after two wins in Columbus this weekend.

The Champs followed up Saturday's win over The Region with a win over Illinois BC on Sunday. Julian Mavunga led all scorers with 21 in Sunday's victory. The win puts the Champs into the round of 16 in The Basketball Tournament.

"TBT" is a winner-take-all, single elimination tourney. The victor walks away with two million dollars in cash. The Champs have competed in the event each of the last four summers.

The round of 16 begins in Atlanta on Friday for the Champs. They'll take on former top 10 NBA pick Jimmer Fredette and his squad for the right to advance on to the quarterfinals.
