East Lansing, Mich. – A former Michigan State big man will compete in The Basketball Tournament this summer. 

Gavin Schilling, who played for the Spartans from 2013-2018, joined the Kimchi Express, a three-time TBT participant spreading Korean culture through sports. 

"(It's) my first time playing in it (TBT), but I look forward to competing, meeting new people, and giving it everything I got," Schilling said in a video shared by Kimchi Express' Twitter. 

Schilling most recently signed with Basketball Lowen Braunschweig of Basketball Bundesliga (BBL) on July 31, 2020. In 34 games, the 6-foot-9 forward averaged 10.9 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 1.1 assists while shooting 54.9% from the field (22.8 MPG). 

Now entering its eighth season, TBT, a million-dollar, winner-take-all event televised by ESPN, will host a 64-team tournament starting in July after successfully building a bubble environment in 2020.

"It's hard to believe we are heading into our eighth year," said TBT founder and CEO Jon Mugar. "It's a testament to our team, our general managers, players, and passionate fanbase. We expect over a hundred teams to apply for 64 slots and every game to live up to TBT's unique brand of high stakes, intense, team-oriented basketball."
