    Danny Wiseman mobs teammate Michael Fagan after their wild win in the PBA Exempt Doubles Classic.
 
EL PASO, Texas - 2/6/2008
 
PBA Exempt Doubles Classic Recap
Just an hour after the T of C finals, the crowd at Red Rock Lanes had settled into another championship round, getting treated to finals of the first doubles event on the Denny’s PBA Tour since 2001. Just when it seemed like things had settled down, an even more stunning turn of events took place in the title match between the teams of Joe Ciccone-Ronnie Russell and top-seed Michael Fagan-Danny Wiseman.

Ciccone and Russell, who were each looking for their first career titles, looked relaxed and poised in defeating Chris Barnes and Wes Malott in the first match and Bill O’Neill and Mike Scroggins in the second match. A back-and-forth title match ensued, with Fagan and Wiseman taking the early lead, but Fagan giving it right back with opens in the sixth and eighth frames. After Fagan rebounded to spare and strike in the 10th, Ciccone stepped up needing a strike and nine-spare to win the match for his team.

Ciccone struck with his first ball to get what seemed like the hard part out of the way, but he left the 2- and 5-pins with his second shot and the match looked headed to a roll-off.

What happened next left the Red Rock Lanes crowd – along with Fagan and Wiseman – with their jaws dropped even further than they had been two hours before. Ciccone missed both pins to the left, giving Fagan and Wiseman the 210-208 win. The victory marked the first of Fagan’s career and was the 12th for Wiseman, who won for the first time since the 2004 USBC Masters.
