Gallery: Do you remember? -- The inaugural St. Joe Invitational basketball tournament in 1978
Teams play in the inaugural St. Joseph Invitational in 1978.
The tournament was born after the West Virginia State Catholic Basketball Tournament, which began in 1936, disbanded in 1977.
2012 is the final year for the St. Joe Invitational at the Veterans Memorial Field House, which will be demolished to make way for a $5.4 million soccer complex for Marshall University. The tournament is set for Wednesday-Saturday, Jan. 18-21.
We will scan and post a few galleries from past tournaments at www.Herald-Dispatch.com. (Please note that we have not shot all of the games through the years.)
