Best Virginia to Host Wheeling Regional for 2023 TBT
Best Virginia, WVU’s alumni team, will host a TBT regional in Wheeling for summer of 2023, The Basketball Tournament announced on Tuesday morning.
WesBanco Arena will be the venue hosting the regional.
“I’m excited for TBT to come to Wheeling this summer,” Best Virginia GM John Flowers said. “There are a lot of West Virginia fans that deserve to see us play and to be able to interact with some of their favorite former Mountaineers, and we think the opportunity in Wheeling will allow for more fans to do just that. We’re looking forward to a great turnout this summer.”
This marks Best Virginia’s third-straight summer of hosting a regional; two in Charleston (2021-22) and now Wheeling (2023). Best Virginia made a run to the Elite-8 in Dayton, the closest the group has been to the $1 million prize.
Best Virginia is an all-time 6-2 record in their TBT history, dating back to 2019.
Wheeling will be one of TBT’s eight regional locations this summer. Eight teams will compete in the West Virginia Regional over the course of five days in July in the single-elimination event, with the West Virginia Regional champion advancing to the quarterfinals.
The Basketball Tournament is a 64-team field, which the winning team takes home $1 million.
