Joins Best Virginia

WVU Tech guard Tamon Scruggs joins Best Virginia this weekend in Charleston, W.Va. for the 2022 TBT tournament. Scruggs is a former player of head coach James Long at WVU Tech.

“Tamon is one of the best scorers I have been around,” Long said. “He was one of the best players in the country for us at WVU Tech. He is going to help us prepare and will be ready to contribute if his number is called in TBT. This is going to be a great opportunity for Tamon to be a part of this process.

Scruggs (6-foot-4, 220 pounds) is coming off his senior season for the Golden Bears, averaging 18.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.5 steals per game. The South Charleston native helped lead WVU Tech to an NAIA National Championship appearance this past season. Scruggs graduated from South Charleston High School in 2017. Scruggs earned first-team All-Kanawha Valley and second-team all-state accolades while in high school.

Scruggs joins Jamel Morris and Tanner McGrew as the three non-WVU players on Best Virginia. All three played Division-II basketball during their collegiate careers.

With the addition of Scruggs, this finalizes Best Virginia’s roster for the 2022 TBT.
