The Shepherd women were selected fifth in a poll that showed where every conference school was selected to finish. Musselman finished first in Class AAA and will play Spring Valley High on Saturday. Spring Valley is a first-year consolidated school that was created from three schools in Wayne County -- Hun- tington Vinson, Ceredo-Kenova, and Buffalo. Martinsburg fin- ished llth and travels to play Huntington on Saturday. In Class A, two-time defending state champion Moorefield fin- ished second overall and will get all home games as long as it keeps winning. The Yellowjackets face Williamson on Saturday. Pendle- ton County (Franklin) made the playoffs as the llth rated Class A team and travels to meet Buffalo of Putnam at Poca High School on Saturday. Hedgesville's loss to Mussel- man kept the Eagles out of the playoffs. West Virginia opens its basket- ball season this Saturday, Novem- ber 14 with a home date against Alabama A & M. The Mountain- eers beat the Bulldogs last season, 114-85. A & M is a new member of the Southwestern Athletic Confer- ence, an NCAA Division I league that usually features Southern U Grambling, Mississippi Valley State, or Texas Southern. The Mountaineers first road game will come next Wednesday when they travel to Pittsburgh to play Duquesne. West Virginia beat the Dukes, 90-78, in Morgan- town last year. Marshall also opens its season on Saturday, November 14 when it faces Bluefield of the WVIAC in Huntington.
