2022 TBT Basketball Tournament

in Charleston, WV


The WVU Alumni Band has been invited to play for the Best Virginia team in the 2022 TBT Basketball Tournament. The tournament organizers provided specific guidance for participants. Please be sure to read through the details below concerning the full event. Registration is required for participation.


The opening session will be Sunday, July 24th. Should Best Virginia win, they would play the following Tuesday evening and then again Wednesday evening if they advance. We will not know the official time slots until approximately two weeks before the tourney and will provide that information as soon as possible. The following is a TENTATIVE outline based on our 2021 experience.

  • Sunday, 7/24 – tipoff is at 7:00pm against Virginia Dream. Call time for rehearsal in the warmup room is 5:45pm for rehearsal and then set up in the arena. Please enter the building through the loading dock.
  • Tuesday, 7/26 (if we win Sunday) tipoff will be at 7pm or 9pm. Call time will be one hour prior to tipoff.
  • Wednesday, 7/27 (if we win Tuesday) tipoff is at 9pm. Call time will be 8pm.

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THIS IS A TENTATIVE SCHEDULE. We will know more as soon as the TBT releases the line up.
