Before I start on Friday, just a thought on a national item: Happy that Penn State has been given back its 112 football victories and that Joe Paterno is back at the top of the victory list. Now that PSU has been restored, it’s time again for another restoration project — his name is Pete Rose!
Now, on to prep basketball and Friday’s action at North Hagerstown where the Hubs went up against rival South Hagerstown.
I labeled the game in my story as an ‘instant classic.’ If the game would have been televised, it could have been immediately replayed on Herald-Mail HMTV6. … Yes, it was that good. There have been other games in recent memory that have been closer than 5 points final margin, but Friday’s 72-67 victory by South left the entire crowd gasping to the very end.
