Although only 12 schools were . .presented in the three classes tournament play, certainly .aany times 12 cities and towns were represented. They came ture didn't end even with the crowning of the state's three top basketball teams. It continued in most instances until the new champions and even some of the defeated teams, had ridden home in style. In the case of the winners many of their ardent supporters who in many cases had travelled hundreds of miles to see their team become champions, formed long car caravans to accompany I their team home. And in the case i of Martinsburg there was a royal homecoming welcome for the Bulldogs even in defeat. Unfavorable Notes About the only unfavorable notes of the week-end trip to Hun tington from our standpoint was the snow, sleet and rain which we had to go through enroute to and returning from Huntington and the quick judgement which the sportswriters and broadcasters passed on the play of some of the tournament , teams, especially Martmsburg. It is no more right to judge a team or it's performance in one tournament game, than it is to judge a book it's cover. But in me case of Martmsburg's Bull- dogs they were judged solely on one per ormance, wire little or no conslaeration being given to it's seasonal record ann sectional and regmnal tournament play. It has always been said that it's no disgrace to lose as long as a minimum effort is put forth. ~ut some of the comments Wmcn we heard in Huntington from sportswriters and coaches follow- mg tile vmrtmsburg-nuntmgton game certainly ule *maruns- utlrg exnzozcton in the chSgl'ace category.
