GRAPHIC=HOMETOWN HOOPS Welcome to your Wednesday Ticker


and that means Hometown Hoops Weekly.

If this was the first day of January it
wouldn't be that strange to have
unbeaten High School Basketball Teams.
But being that this is the first day of
March, to have both an area Girls' and
Boy's Hoops team still unbeaten heading
into the State Quarterfinals is rather
Impressive. Grant Kittelson checks in
with both squads.

OQ=Hometown Hoops Weekly <<(STANDUP:) The George Washington



(END SOT) Eagles boast a 23 and oh record and


will host Booker T. Washington this
Saturday at Averitt University. The
Floyd County Girls meanwhile are 27 and
oh and play Haysi Friday Night in
Blacksburg Having a round number in
the loss column for both these teams is
nice but it wasn't neccessarly on the
Pre-season Goal List.

(MARTIN BITE: 01:00)

(CANTRELL: 02:27)

The Lady Buffalos will be a
hunted team with their perfect record
but it'ss nothing new for Floyd County.

(CANTRELL BITE:05:00)

This time a year the collar
begins to tighten for many coach. For
Alan Cantrell who has taken Floyd
County to the State Title before, the
opposite is true.

(CANTRELL BITE:03:20)

Bobby Martin tried to convey in
words to his young Eagle Team the
pressures that goes along with playing
in the post-season, but the kids had to
learn from experience.

(MARTIN BITE: 02:42)

Martin understands a thing or 2
about pressure. Having played college

football in front of thousands in Lane
Stadium under Frank Beamer, but yet
he's coaching basketball.

(MARTIN BITE: 03:55)

G.W. will be looking for it's
first state title since 1998, while the
Lady Buffalos last one the title in
1994. Grant Kittelson Hometown Hoops

GRAPHIC=None We have an update to a story the


C-B-S Evening news brought you last
week.

It sounds like a Hollywood story-
the autistic manager of a basketball
team decided to suit up and join his
team.

*CG locator Greece, NY 17

He just wanted to make one shot..
and it happened not once but again and
again and again- just like a perfectly
scripted movie- Jason McElwain's
teammates carried him off the court.

More than half a dozen movie
studios have already called offering to
buy the rights to Jason's story-
