The streak is FINALLY over. (Yeah!)Wednesday's victory at Texas Tech gave West Virginia its first Big 12 road victory in over 700 days. The streak-snapping 76-61 victory came in a most unconventional way. Consider that 65% of the Mountaineers offense came from reserve players, and that 68% of WVU's shot attempts were from three-point distance. Throw in 19 turnovers and you've got a weird win. But, hey it counts. In this episode, Brad Howe and Tony Caridi perform the postgame analytic audit and preview Saturday's date with No. 15 Auburn. The Tigers (16-4) will be making just their second visit to the WVU Coliseum. It's the fifth meeting all-time between the two schools. The series is tied at two wins apeice.

Dominick Calacino and his family saw a vision in the early 1930's. They purchased the property located in Calloway Heights for $15,500 and built the building where Calacino's currently stands. In 1934, Beckley's first pizzeria was opened and Calacino's soon became one of the top hangouts for high school and college students where they socialized over pizza and danced to jukebox music. For generations, Dominick served his homemade pizza pie to hundreds of young and old people alike. “Youngsters” enjoyed coming to Calacino's not only for the best pizza in town, but also to listen to stories of times past. On the backside of a decades-old postcard featuring the Calacino's building, it says, “There are more marriages made at Calacino's than in Heaven.” The tradition that started in 1934 by the Calacino's was one that Dominick refined to perfection over the years of service to his Beckley patrons. Calacino's remained open until Dominick passed away in January 2000. In 2009, Jerry and Kathy Zaferatos reopened Calacino's to carry on the tradition Dominick started in 1934. In December 2016 the tradition was passed to current owners Jeff and Jamie Weeks. As owners we would like to thank you for choosing Calacino's and becoming part of the tradition. For over 80 years Calacino's has been serving up great food and fun to our friends in southern West Virginia. Please join us in our historic main dining room, our sports bar and lounge, or enjoy outdoor seating on the deck! Calacino's has LIVE MUSIC every weekend with NO COVER, Team Trivia on Tuesdays at 7pm, Karaoke on Wednesdays at 7:30pm, Bike Nights every Thursday during the summer and Jeep Nights every Thursday during the fall.
