“Teyvon is obviously the energy of the team. He has always been that since his official visit to WVU,” Best Virginia head coach James Long said. “But, he’s more than energy. I thought he was one of the best guards in our region and one of the most consistent players on our team this year. Teyvon’s game has gotten consistently better as he has progressed through his career. He is a professional. From a skill set standpoint, he can get your team a bucket in any way you ask.”
Myers was the leading scorer in the country while playing in Junior College prior to his days at West Virginia. In 2015, Myers made the jump to Division-I basketball to play under Bob Huggins. Myers was a part of the “Press Virginia” teams, contributing to the Mountaineers Sweet-16 run in 2017.
Following his senior year, Myers has played international basketball since 2018. The Brooklyn native started out in Sweden where he averaged 17.8 points per game in his rookie season. Myers went on to playing in Germany and France before playing for Sopron KC in Hungary. This past season, Myers averaged 14.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists for FC Porto in a Portuguese league.
