Athens, GA (Feb 23, 2009) - The buzz is flowing up from the Hudson River to the rolling hills and campus of the United States Military Academy at West Point. It has nothing to do with Navy. It has everything to do with internal pride and competition. Tomorrow night, Joe Tessitore and Teddy Atlas (a favorite of the cadets) return to visit the Corps of Cadets for the Annual Brigade Boxing Finals. ESPNU will broadcast the event live from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm et. Rebroadcasts of the event will be Thursday, Feb. 26 at 1:00 p.m. et and Friday, Feb. 27 at 12:30 a.m et.

Ryan Yanoshak of the West Point Athletic Communications Department was kind enough to pass along the following images from last year's event.
