This July, WVU Basketball’s alumni team, Best Virginia, will be participating in their TBT regional in Pittsburgh. Best Virginia announced on Wednesday that former WVU G Teyvon Myers will be returning with the team this summer once more.

Myers has played with his fellow Mountaineers in the TBT tournament four straight years now and wants another crack at the $1 million prize.

In 2015, Myers made the jump to Division-I basketball to play under Bob Huggins after a successful JUCO run. Myers played 66 games in two seasons with WVU, contributing to a Sweet-16 team in 2017.

“[Head coach] James Long and I have been having conversations beginning this month about the style of play we want to do, our vision. We went back and forth on how we wanted to approach this and we both agreed we want to bring some comparison to ‘Press Virginia’ like we used to do in the good old days,” former WVU G Chase Harler said. “Not saying that it’s going to look exactly like that but that’s the blueprint we’re going for.”

Harler returns as Best Virginia’s general manager, while James Long (head coach), Greg Richardson (assistant GM) and Dave Ryan (marketing) also are 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 19-24.

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