    Any chance ESPN picks it up?

    Off note to anyone?
    Not sure but we’re Hot Rod and Charlie Huggins
    in high school at the same time? Wondered if
    Morgantown played Charleston in those ads?

    At this point, ESPN has not indicated it will be picked up. The only broadcast companies to have an agreement in place at the moment are with AT&T SportsNet (both Pittsburgh and Rocky Mountain) and WV public broadcasting. I’m sure there will be wider distribution in the future, including a likely Internet stream, but at the moment, nothing is definite beyond what I’ve listed.

    Charlie Huggins is a couple years older than Hot Rod. I’ll have to check to see if they ever played against each other in the state high school tournament. I’ll look that up and let you know.

    They faced each other in the state Class A (big school) semifinals in 1951 at the WVU Field House. Huggins scored what was then believed to be a state tourney-record 38 points to Hundley’s 29, but Charleston won, 78-60. Beckley then defeated Charleston in the finals.

    Did Dwane Wingler play then for Beckley?
    I believe he ended up at WVU from another school.
    Maybe all state a couple of years?

    One year too early for Wingler, who starred on Beckley’s 1952, 1953, and 1954 title teams.
