Hoop Classic

March 1, 2010 - Robert "Bubba" Kapral

Who needs Duke vs. North Carolina or Pitt vs West Virginia for college basketball frenzy? College hoops at its feverish finest played out Saturday on the campus of Wheeling Jesuit University. The Cardinals played host to neighboring rival West Liberty University. The competition was fierce and the atmosphere electric. The Cardinals and Hilltoppers treated an overflow and passionate crowd to a basketball extravaganza. WLU had its hands full until the final minute in outlasting its game foe for its 20th straight victory and 25th in 26 starts. Local college basketball often takes a backseat to high school hoops as well as to WVU, Ohio State and Pitt. Anyone who witnessed the WLU-WJU shootout would tell you it was basketball the way it should be played.
