Blue & Gold Classic Game Of The Week: 1980 Basketball, West Virginia at Pitt


We go way back for this one, all the way to the Eastern 8 days, as Gale Catlett’s Mountaineers travelled to Pitt’s Fitzgerald Fieldhouse for the 1980 version of the Backyard BasketBrawl. West Virginia left the Steel City with a 67-66 victory over the Panthers.

    Great find!

    At the end, bonus footage of WVU vs. Villanova in the Eastern 8 title game at the Igloo — Nova’s last game in the E-8 before bolting for the BE.

    Love the Pitt mascot getting mad as WVU rallies.

    And the WVU hangout jerseys!

    Also love the WVU cheerleader at the end of the game running on the court and giving some lip to official Gene Steratore.

    No time clock. No 3 point line. Short shorts and skinny bodies.
