Former Mountaineer forward Wesley Harris is joining Best Virginia, WVU’s alumni team, for the TBT tournament in July, the team announced on Wednesday.

This will be Harris’ debut into TBT, which Best Virginia will play in the Pittsburgh regional from July 19-24. Harris joins a group of Teyvon Myers, Jonathan Holton, Taz Sherman and Esa Ahmad as official members of Best Virginia for the tournament.

“Wesley has been known for his defense, but has developed into an all around player,” Best Virginia GM Chase Harler said. “His toughness and offensive ability will be a great asset to us.”

Harris played in 59 games for West Virginia from 2017-19 under Bob Huggins. Harris averaged 7.9 points during his junior year before transferring to Tennessee State to wrap up his collegiate eligibility. Harris has played in Cyprus, Romania and most recently Slovakia, where he averaged 11.8 points and 5.8 rebounds this past season.

Harler returns as Best Virginia’s general manager, while 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.
