CHAPMANVILLE — Chapmanville and Tolsia just might play each other.

Maybe.

However, for the second time this season the Chapmanville Regional High School boys’ basketball team had its home game with the Tolsia Rebels postponed.

Tuesday’s scheduled game at Chapmanville was called off due to the snowy weather and icy road conditions.

Chapmanville and Tolsia were slated to open the season on Dec. 11 at CRHS but that game was postponed due to the Rebel football team being in the Super Six the weekend before and not being ready yet for the basketball season.

The Tolsia at Chapmanville game has been rescheduled for Feb. 20. The two teams, however, are slated to meet on Jan. 28 at Tolsia High School in Glenhayes.

Chapmanville, coached by first-year mentor Brad Napier, are scheduled to return to action on Friday night at home against county rival Man. The Tigers beat the Hillbillies 77-71 on Dec. 29 at Chapmanville in the championship game of Chapmanville’s Bob Runyon Memorial Holiday Tournament.

The Tigers and Billies will play for a third time late in the season at Man.

After taking on Man on Friday, Chapmanville is scheduled to play Pikeville (Ky.) in the daylong Hatfield-McCoy Shootout at Williamson in a 5 p.m. tip off.

The Tigers then face Sissonville on Jan. 19 at home in a boys/girls doubleheader at CRHS.

Chapmanville currently sits at 4-3 overall and 2-2 in the Cardinal Conference.

* In other action on Tuesday night around the Cardinal Conference, Herbert Hoover beat Sissonville, 70-51, at home. Mathew Justice led the Huskies with 25 points.

Hoover is 7-2 overall and have won five straight games. Chase King had 16 points and 10 rebounds and Evan Boothe scored 15 points for the Huskies.

Sissonville (5-3) was led by Nathan Samples, who had 23 points. Chance Brown tossed in 18.

Also on Tuesday night in Cardinal Conference play, Class AA No. 1-ranked and defending state champion Poca ripped Wayne 85-39 at home. The Dots (8-2) got a career-high 35 points from Elijah Cuffee. He also had eight steals and eight assists.
