Men of Mackey complete comeback in first round of TBT

COLUMBUS, Ohio. (FORT WAYNE'S NBC) - A group of Purdue alumni and other basketball players join forces for a chance to win one million dollars.

It all begins on Sunday, as the Men of Mackey face Heartfire.

Ronald Moore leads the team to a 21-10 start out of the gate, yet the Heartfire catch up and regain the control.

It wasn't until Justin Dentmon scores 26 of his 30 points in the 2nd half and leads a late-game run, that the Men of Mackey begin a comeback.

The Basketball Tournament rules are whichever team gets to 85 first wins.

While Dentmon lead the way, Isaac Haas pulled down a rebound and finished the game-winning shot.

The Men of Mackey win 85-79 and move on in the bracket.

The team's next game is against Boeheim's Army at 4 p.m. on Tuesday.
