A Fun Night in Morgantown

Tonight I get to attend one of the more highly anticipated WVU basketball games in recent memory. Two big factors are playing into this as WVU is riding its longest win streak since the late 80's and Oklahoma will showcase Freshman sensation Trae Young.  For those who don't follow college basketball Young is having a historical start to his season where he is averaging around 30 points and 10 assists per game.  His style mimics that of Steph Curry.  Both teams are in the top 10.

Big time college games are always fun just for the environment itself.  Being that the game was moved to a 715pm start it should help create a nice hostile environment.  Plenty of time for liquid encouragement!

Lets celebrate the big game with a card of WVU's most accomplished athlete.  This card comes courtesy of Dennis from Too Many Verlanders who absolutely blew me away with a mega trade package.  I'll show the whole contents of the mega package once my new computer arrives next week.  For now check this bad boy out.


2010 Ultimate Collection Jerry West Auto

This card was blanketed by a handful of 1/1's and a Clemente relic! Pure craziness from my buddy Dennis.  Also big props to Dennis for giving me some IT advice on my new computer.  You are the man my friend. 

Thanks for reading! 
Let's Go Mountaineers.

    1. The good thing is the WVU versions are much cheaper than the Lakers. You can find some pretty good deals

  2. I was delayed at an airport an plopped myself down in front of ESPN. They had something like a 5-minute segment on Trae Young. He appears to be very talented.
    Good luck to your Mountaineers tonight!

    1. We did a pretty good job with him. He still got his points but we didn't let him handle the ball that much. He ended with the most turnovers and fewest assists he
      has had all year.

    1. Hope you found a place to watch it. Really nice second half by WVU, especially when Carter got in foul trouble.

    1. Yeah, with many of the top ten teams going down we should end up with our best ranking since Jerry West played!

  8. Haven't started watching college hoops yet... but March is just around the corner. That West is awesome! Always loved the 1997 UD Legends autograph design.

    1. Going to games helps me keep track of some of the players. The Big 12 is really good this year.
