BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - Episode 20 of the 5 Sports Podcast features a surprise visit from Fairmont State men’s basketball head coach Tim Koenig and a farewell to the Mountain State from Carly Nevis.

Koenig joined Nevis and Darren Zaslau to chat about the Fighting Falcons winning their first Mountain East Conference Tournament Championship since 1984 this year, star guard Dale Bonner’s transfer to defending national champion Baylor and the team’s mindset heading into the offseason.

Fairmont State went 15-5 overall in Koenig’s second year at the helm. The squad earned an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament and was eliminated in the first round by No. 3 Mercyhurst, 62-58.

Nevis is leaving WDTV after serving three years at the station as a sports anchor and reporter. She discussed what the transition was like moving from New York City to West Virginia, her favorite memories and the important bonds she’s formed with the NCWV community. Her last day is Friday, June 4.
