Best Virginia Receives Seed and First Opponent in TBT Regional



Best Virginia TBT

Best Virginia, WVU’s alumni-based team, received its seed line and first opponent for the TBT regional in Pittsburgh. Best Virginia will be the 3-seed and take on Brotherly Love in the opening round on Saturday, July 20 at the Petersen Events Center.

If Best Virginia wins its first game, there’s a chance that the Backyard Brawl will make an appearance in the second round with Pitt’s alumni team Zoo Crew. UConn’s alumni team Stars of Storrs earned the 1-seed in the regional.

Other teams in the regional include Dubois Dream (4), Happy Valley Hoopers (5 – Penn State), Brotherly Love (6), Million $ Worth of Game (7), Herkimer Originals (8).

The regional final will conclude on Wednesday, July 24.

Check out the full bracket down below.

So far, Best Virginia’s roster consists of Teyvon Myers (G), Jonathan Holton (F), Taz Sherman (G), Wesley Harris (F), Esa Ahmad (F) and Sagaba Konate (F). Chase Harler will serve as head coach with now-assistant Kevin Jones.

Harler returns as Best Virginia’s general manager and head coach, while Greg Richardson (assistant GM) and Dave Ryan (marketing) are also in the works again with the team.

This will be the first time since 2020 that Best Virginia won’t host their own regional, playing in Charleston and Wheeling the last three summers. Pitt’s alumni team, The Zoo Crew, will do the honors of hosting their own regional this summer at the Petersen Events Center from July 20-24.

The Basketball Tournament is a 64-team field, which the winning team takes home $1 million.
