The regional games for the 64-team, $1 million, winner-take-all-event- will be played at the UD Arena from July 19-24, a University of Dayton spokesperson announced on Thursday.

“Every year we go back to Dayton, the crowd grows,” said TBT founder and CEO Jon Mugar. “We have a great partnership with the University of Dayton. I look forward to seeing a motivated Red Scare team attempt to avenge last summer’s early exit. It just goes to show how difficult it is for any team to win six straight games in this format.”

Dayton’s alumni team, the Red Scare, will be also playing.

It will be organized for former University of Dayton basketball players Joey Gruden and Jeremiah Bonsu. Gruden will serve as the team’s head coach for the sixth straight summer.

Red Scare will make roster announcements throughout the spring.

This will be the third summer that Dayton has served as TBT host. Red Scare won the 2022 Dayton Regional and advanced to TBT’s semifinals

Tickets for the 2024 Dayton Regional will go on sale later.
