Chucks battle back, need OT in close win

January 26, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Not every win goes exactly as planned. Wednesday night was one of those victories for the Chucks basketball team, which hosted Keystone and squeezed by the Panthers, 50-47, in overtime to improve to 10-4 this season.

Punxsy head coach Dirk Neal said after the game that he knew from the beginning his team had to jump on Keystone or the Panthers would be dangerous if allowed to hang around.

The Zak Zone

For as long as I can remember, there are two men I could have been speaking of when I simply called someone Coach: My former hockey coach Doc Snyder and Joe Paterno.

This week, the world lost one of those men in the same manner I lost one of my other greatest mentors a year-and-a-half prior when my pap's battle with lung cancer came to a close.

Since I was a young lad, I have always respected and even loved JoePa. From the beginning, I was a PSU fan because Dad was one, and it didn't take me long to realize Coach was a man worth respecting.
