On Monday afternoon, Best Virginia announced that former WVU guard Teyvon Myers will fill in the final roster spot for the TBT tournament coming up starting on Sunday. Myers played for West Virginia’s alumni team in 2021, helping contribute to a Sweet-16 appearance.

Myers replaces former Ohio State player Kaleb Wesson, who was expected to be on the team this year.

“Teyvon brings the juice on whatever team he is on,” Best Virginia head coach James Long said. “He is one of the most energetic guys I have been around. He’s definitely one of the most elite scorers that I have played with or been around.”

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 went on to play international basketball in 2018. The Brooklyn native started out in Sweden where he averaged 17.8 points per game in his rookie season. Myers went on to play in Germany and France before playing for Sopron KC in Hungary. This past season, Myers averaged 18.0 points, 3.3 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game.

With the addition of Myers, Best Virginia has 10 players for their first round matchup against Virginia Dream in Charleston, W. Va. on Sunday.
