It’s official: Briante Weber will make his debut with team Ram Nation next week as our group of VCU alums travel to Atlanta for the Super 16, competing for a $2 million prize in The Basketball Tournament. Weber will no doubt bring his competitive energy and defensive prowess to a roster that is already stacked with offensive ability.
The human embodiment of HAVOC will be joining us for the remainder of our @thetournament journey. Can’t wait to see this guy back in the black and gold…
Ram Nation, help us welcome back…

Weber is currently a free agent, coming off of two stints in the 2017-2018 NBA season with the Houston Rockets (13 games played), and the Memphis Grizzlies (5 games played). The Grizzlies did not extend Weber’s contract, making him a free agent and thus eligible to play with our Ram Nation TBT team.
Ram Nation competed in front of several thousand fans at the Siegel Center this past weekend, winning two games to advanced to the Super 16, a round of 16 remaining teams competing for the $2 million prize.
The #2-ranked Ram Nation team will play next Thursday, July 26th in Atlanta at 7:00 PM against #6-ranked Team DRC. The game will be televised on ESPN2. This will be the 6th game televised on ESPN out of Ram Nation’s 10 games so far as a team over 3 years.
