The Basketball Tournament, a $2 million winner-take-all event that features 64 teams of mostly current or former professional basketball players, revealed 24 more teams chosen at large on Tuesday.

Nine teams from each of the four regions had already received an automatic bid to the tournament last week after collecting the highest number of votes from fans online.

Few Good Men, made up of mostly Gonzaga alumni, finished eighth in the West Region after accumulating nearly 1,200 votes by deadline at 9 a.m. on June 1. Few Good Men’s roster includes Dan Dickau, Blake Stepp, Steven Gray, Mike Hart, Jeremy Pargo and older brother Jannero.

Among the six West teams that received an at-large bid were Team Utah, which eliminated Few Good Men last year in the Super 16 round.

Team Challenge ALS, which fell to No. 10 after leading the West about a week before voting deadline, was also given a spot in the tournament.

The last four teams will be determined through a play-in event on June 17-18 in Philadelphia, where up to 16 teams in each region will compete for the region’s final spot.

Fans can still cast votes for their favorite teams before the start of the tournament in July. Vote at thetournament.com to collect points and win cash prizes.
