They were ~baeked up by a fabulous rooting section of approximately 200 men from St. Joseph College and ,their "Hawk Mascot". Their theme song was "The Hawks Come Marching In" done to the tune of "The Saints l Come Mar~,hing In". NO words can describe this setup, You just had to be ,there to hear and see wh~t took place. As you know the 'Mountaineers won 95-92 even though down 18 points in the sec- ond half. It was one of the rough est games I have seen with Jerry West being double teamed most of the way but still pouring in 36 points ,to seal the vietory. Saturday night Navy looked very good and St. Joseph ,was look ing ahead to next year wit;h the resul% a Navy victory. In the final championship game between Bos- ton University and West Virgin- ia, the St. Joseph rooting sec/vion "Hawk and All" backed up Bos- ton to the limi.t. Well Max ,that was more than those good North Carolina ~ans could stand. They knew the Mountaineers Were re- presenting the Southern Confer- ence and they were for West Vir ginia all the way and when West and Company went ahead of Bos- ton in t~he final minute :to seal the victory, ~he Band struck up "Dix- ie" and those North Carolina fans let out a roar ~ha~ could 'be heard 'way back in Morgar~town and they let it, be known to the World-that West Virginia .their ball club and Jerry West was their boy. Wha~ about Jerry West. As Coach Fred Schaus s~id l as~ week "Where ~ha~t boy is concerned I have run out of adjeotives", Kelly" and I, limp from exci.te- ment and all ~beat u,p from seeing two fabulous ~ames, caught a Sou thern Train back Saturday night 1~te. As I eased into my seat Pre- pared to settle myself for the long ~rip 'back to Washing"ton, a tap came on my shoulder. I looked a- round and it yeas John C~rnevale. "You know Morison, its just llke I said. Stop West and you stop West Virginia." Win or lose at Louisville, ~ll West Virginia fans and support- ers can be real proud of our ball club. As one North Carolina fan put it, "T,h~y Could Go All The Way". (Editor's Note: Along wish Mor- ison and Lance ~t the ~xmrnamen~ we understand, were Mr, and Mrs. Win.
