Bob Huggins Comforts Injuried Player

I'll be the first to admit, by no means am I the biggest Bob Huggins fan. However, during last night's Final Four game against Duke, the West Virginia coach earned some of my respect with the way he handled a very delicate situation.

Late in the second half of a game that the Mountaineers were trailing, WVU star De-Sean Butler went down in a heap after colliding with a Duke player. From the moment he went down, it was obvious Butler was in serious pain.

Huggins stated he never coached a better combination of person and player than De-Sean Butler. As Butler lay struggling on the ground, Huggins made every effort to comfort the injured player. He also showed some of his hot temper and unleashed a brief tirade on official John Higgans, "They [the Blue Devils] don't foul, right, John? They don't foul. All-American laying here and they don't foul."

Watch the compassionate side of Bob Huggins.

  1. And to the think Big Smooth, aka Black Dragon, didn't show the same respect to Fogerty RFD 2008.
