MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – (February 5, 2021) — On Friday morning, former WVU men’s basketball forward Kevin Jones announced that Best Virginia will enter The Basketball Tournament for the summer of 2021.
Jones announced it on the Inside TBT podcast.
Best Virginia opted out of the tournament last year, but is looking to return to the court for the first time since 2019.
TBT is a tournament-based format that has grown since it’s formation in 2014. The tournament usually consists of around 64 teams, but last year was only able to have 24 teams to form a bubble in Columbus, Ohio.
The tournament winner receives a winner-takes-all prize of $1 Million. ESPN is the sole source of coverage for the tournament in July.
Best Virginia will announce its roster for the 2021 TBT in the upcoming weeks.
