Over 70 teams and in the end a group of potential Mohigan basketball players won the WVU Team Camp Championship on Sunday. The most encouraging sign was that this was just half of the potential team as the team of 16 players was split into two equal parts. The Blue team finished 8-0 and the White team 3-2. The White team had two of its players go down to injuries early in the weekend causing them to be shorthanded. They started the weekend with a victory over Madison Plains from Virginia and then lost a last second decision to Western Brown. On Saturday they defeated Pikeview from Southern West Virginia by a score of 57-40. Nathan Colombo led the way with 16 points and 10 rebounds. In their next game they defeated Franklin Heights from Virginia by a score of 43-16. Michael Caridi led the way with 9 points. Chase Wilson and Mike Bloom went down with injuries and the team was left with too little depth and lost on Sunday morning to Loudin County, Virginia by a score of 43-30. Once again Michael Caridi led the way with 10 point and five rebounds.

 The Blue team had Friday evening victories over Fairmont West and Elkins by a score of 80-40. Arius Jackson(transfer from Canton Ohio) led the Way with 8 points and 9 assists. In a 61- 37 Saturday morning victory over Lincoln, Sam Runner had 16 points and 8 rebounds, Tyler Anderson had 13 points and Taylor Simmons had 11 points and 7 assists in the victory. The things got tough as a terrific Mussleman team took them to overtime before MHS pulled out a stunning 54-52 victory on a lay up at the buzzer by Cody Petitte. They finished with a 4-0 record and were seeded number one for the tournament. Sunday morning opened with an impressive 57-30 victory over Glenelg of Columbia Maryland. Luke Meador led a balanced attack with 14 points, Sam Runner added 12 points and Cody Petitte added 10 points. Tyler Anderson added 9 points and Arius Jackson had 7 assists. In the quarterfinals another classic battle with Musselman ensued, but the Mohigans raced to a 53- 42 victory over the Applemen. Leading the way again was Cody Petitte with 13 points and 5 rebounds. Tyler Anderson added 12 points and Sam Runner had 9. In the semifinals, MHS took down Martinsburg, whom many think will be the best team in WV next year. This time Jordan Barnett led the way with 14 points and Sam Runner continued his consistent play with 14 points as well. Cody Petitte had 11 points and Tyler Anderson added 10 points. Arius Jackson added 6 assists to the cause. In the championship Morgantown defeated St Francis DeSales of Columbus Ohio by a score of 48-43. Cody Petitte came up big with 16 points, and Taylor Simmons added 9 points. Jackson hit two free throws in the last twenty seconds to seal the victory. DeSales won the Columbus Catholic League Championship last year with a 19-4 record. They have been state semifinalist in Ohio during two of the last three years. Morgantown Blue ended with an 8-0 record and sophomore Ben Blemings played a significant role in each game, off the bench. The teams were coached by Tom Yester, Dennis Kerns and Jason White.  Next up for MHS are eight games in Erie Pennsylvania later this week.
