Passing of a hoops legend

One of the top college basketball coaches in West Virginia passed this weekend - Don Christie of Concord.
He won two West Virginia Conference tournament championships, along with coaching scoring sensation Archie Talley, before retiring in 1989.
With the foundation he helped build, the school won three more WVIAC tournament titles and went to two NAIA national tournaments over the following decade.
I got to cover his final season in 1989, and many good years of Concord athletics when he served as athletic director.
He will be greatly missed at the "Campus Beautiful."
