Jamestown, NY- The Beaver County Men's Basketball team are named Champions of the Jim Riggs Post-Journal Classic. Daryl Bones led the way over the weekend for the Titans while averaging 27 points per game leading him to be named MVP of the Jim Riggs Post-Journal Classic.

The next day the Titans squared up with the Classic's home team the Jamestown Jayhawks. The Titans jumped on the Jayhawks early opening the game up with a 11-0 run resulting in an early timeout called by Coach Sisson, after the timeout the Titans continued to pound the Jayhawks going on another 12 to run after the timeout. With the score being 23-2 Coach Sisson called another time out to gather his team and that is when the action started to heat up. The Jayhawks chipped away at the lead leaving the Titans with just a 6 point lead going into half time. Behind the hot shooting of Daryl Bones and Donald Butler dominating the glass the Titans were able to walk away with an 18 point win over the hosting team securing the hardware and being named champs.
