Duquesne’s foes awake memories for Everhart

• Nostalgia has hit home with Duquesne’s Ron Everhart, who coached the Dukes to a 94-75 victory at Radford on Thursday night while his former college coach at nearby Virginia Tech, Charlie Mohr, was in attendance. Tonight, Everhart coaches against the team he grew up watching, West Virginia, coached by his longtime friend and fellow West Virginia native, Bob Huggins. “It brings back a lot of memories,” Everhart said.

• Ray Goss, the longtime play-by-play announcer for Duquesne basketball, has written a book entitled, “Misadventures in Broadcasting.” Goss is a veteran of 50 years of broadcasting and has been the voice of the Dukes for more than 40. Excerpts from the book can be found at

• West Virginia is one of just five schools to reach the NCAA Sweet 16 in three of the past four years. The others are Memphis, North Carolina, Villanova and Texas.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
