Orphans: Damaged floor leaves MVSU basketball without home court

Posted: Thursday, August 26, 2010 2:00 pm

As the countdown to practice draws near, Mississippi Valley State University’s Sean Woods is a Division I basketball coach with no court to practice on.

The floor in MVSU’s basketball gym, the Harrison HPER Complex, was seriously damaged because of a leak in the roof, so the playing surface must be replaced, Woods said. The school will have to fix the roof before a new surface goes down, and that apparently won’t happen before the Delta Devils begin practice Oct. 15.

    Greenwood has never supported Valley. Stop whining about the games being moved If the Greenwood officials has shown any interest and desire in working with Valley, the games would be played in Greenwood. Sam Abraham is upset that Greenwood and Leflore county is going to lose that homecoming money generated by Valley. Maybe, Greenwood will stop taking Valley for granted.

    A lesson can be learned here, A leaking roof will cause floor to rot, Fix roof before floor rots.
