Best Virginia

During the TBT tournament selection show, Best Virginia was awarded the No. 1 seed in the Charleston, W.Va. region. WVU’s alumni team will take on No. 8 Virginia Dream in the first round of the tournament on Sunday, July 24 at the Charleston Civic Center.

Marshall’s alumni team, Herd That, earned a No. 4 in the region. Since there are more regions this time around, West Virginia and Marshall’s teams can end up matching up in the second round of the tournament.

Here are all eight teams in the Charleston region:

BEST VIRGINIA’s 2022 ROSTER:

DEVIN EBANKS / F / WVU

JOHN FLOWERS / F / WVU

JERMAINE HALEY / F / WVU

D’ANGELO HUNTER / F / WVU

KEVIN JONES / F / WVU

TANNER McGREW / F / WV WESLEYAN

JAMEL MORRIS / G / FAIRMONT STATE

JAYSEAN PAIGE / G / WVU

JUWAN STATEN / G / WVU

KALEB WESSON / F / OHIO STATE

COACHES:

JAMES LONG / HEAD COACH

DAVE TALLMAN / ASSISTANT

JEVON CARTER / ASSISTANT

GREG RICHARDSON / GM

This will be Best Virginia’s third time competing in the TBT Tournament. The team participated in 2019, losing in the second round, while making the Sweet 16 in the 2021 tournament. Former WVU F Kevin Jones put together this roster and returns a few players from the Sweet 16 team. Jones, as well as people behind the scenes, were able to receive commitments from many new West Virginia alumni players and the first non-West Virginia affiliated player in Kaleb Wesson from Ohio State.

Best Virginia’s head coach James Long will be coaching in his second TBT tournament. Long is supported by Dave Tallman and Jevon Carter as his coaching assistants. This will be Carter’s first time appearing in the tournament.

Best Virginia is returning to Charleston, West Virginia in July to co-host one region of the TBT tournament with Herd That, Marshall’s alumni team. The Charleston region will run from July 24-27. The link for tickets for the 2022 TBT can be found here.
