It has been nearly two years since Best Virginia has taken the floor but the wait is nearly over as the team of West Virginia graduates will take on WoCo Showtime in the opening round of the 2021 TBT Saturday at 2 p.m.

Playing in the West Virginia region of this year’s bracket, Best Virginia will essentially be playing in front of a home crowd in Charleston, W.Va.

Best Virginia will tip-off against WoCo Showtime at 2 p.m. Saturday in Charleston with the game broadcast on ESPN. BV played a pair of exhibition matches in the state earlier this month in Beckley and Wheeling to prepare.

The WoCo Showtime team is headlined by Wofford alum Fletcher Magee, the NCAA all-time leader in 3-pointers. Magee averaged 18.8 points per game for the Terriers from 2015-19, making 509 career 3-pointers on 43.5% shooting. They are coached by Bobby Perez.

Best Virginia’s roster includes all of the usual suspects from their previous TBT appearances as well as a few more recent Mountaineers. John Flowers, Kevin Jones, Jonathan Holton and Juwan Staten will be joined by Teyvon Myers, Tarik Philip, Nathan Adrian, WVU blocks leader Sagaba Konate and 2020 graduates Logan Routt and Chase Harler. The team will be coached by WVU Tech head coach James Long and assistants Dave Tallman and Da’Sean Butler. Jaysean Paige will miss this year’s tournament.
