The photograph was taken while West was driven through the streets of Beckley by a very proud fan following West Virginia University's amazing run in the 1959 NCAA Basketball Tournament. The Mountaineers make it to the National Championship game, losing to California by one point. West was named the MVP of the tournament. The others in the photograph are not identified.
