Former West Virginia guard Teyvon Myers will be returning to the WVU alumni team, Best Virginia, in the 2023 edition of The Basketball Tournament. Myers played for the team the previous two summers where he helped contribute to a Sweet 16 appearance in 2021 and an Elite-8 appearance in 2022.
“Teyvon is obviously the energy of the team. He has always been that since his official visit to WVU,” 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.”
Prior to his playing days in Morgantown, Myers was the leading scorer in the country in Junior College. In 2015, he made the jump to Division-1 to play under Bob Huggins, contributing to the “Press Virginia” teams as well as the Mountaineers Sweet-16 run in 2017.
Following his senior year, Myers began his international career in Sweden where he averaged 17.8 points per game in his rookie season. Myers has since played in Germany, France, Hungary, and most recently in Portugal where he averaged 14.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 2.5 assists for FC Porto.
“He’s going to bring that Press Virginia energy to the team, and help us finally win that million in Wheeling,” said General Manager and potential roster addition John Flowers.
Myers joins the confirmed roster of Nathan Adrian, Kevin Jones, and Kedrian Johnson. The rest of the roster will be announced in the coming weeks.
