Cavs’ trophy shown at YSU

YOUNGSTOWN — Fans of the Cleveland Cavaliers can still relive the NBA Championship Friday at Kilcawley Center on the Youngs-town State University Campus.

The Larry O’Brien championship trophy is going to be on display from 3 to 7 p.m., inside the Chestnut Room in the Kilcawley Center.

This is one of five stops around Ohio at which the trophy is slated to be displayed before coming back to Quicken Loans Arena for Tuesday’s home opener against the New York Knicks.

The event at YSU is free and fans are encouraged to bring their own camera to get a photo with the trophy.

“We are happy to celebrate winning an NBA championship with Cavs fans across the state of Ohio who have been loyal supporters of the Wine &Gold throughout this journey,” said Cavaliers CEO Len Komoroski in a news release. “Taking the Larry O’Brien trophy on a regional tour gives fans the opportunity to share in the excitement and thank them for being an important part of this special time in Cavaliers history.”

Arena host Ahmaad Crump, Cavalier Girls, Scream Team and Sir C.C., the Cavaliers’ mascot, are scheduled to be in Youngstown. The team plans to accommodate as many fans as possible. This event is on a first-come, first-served basis.

The tour began Oct. 12 at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. From there, it went to the Goodyear Theatre in Akron on Friday, then to the Statehouse rotunda in Columbus on Tuesday before coming to Youngstown.

The last stop is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum on Monday before returning to Quicken Loans Arena.

This presentation means people are coming to YSU.

“Brings more people to YSU, and that’s a good thing,” said Vaughn Myers, Operations Manager of the Kilcawley Center. “The Cavs reached out to us.”
