#13 WVU Gets Huggins His 800th Win
No. 13 West Virginia Mountaineers used a 37-4 first-half blowout to a 112-67 win against UMKC on Saturday. This win, allowed coach Bob Huggins to obtain his 800th career win.
Huggins is only the 10th coach to reach 800 wins and only the 3rd to achieve that milestone at his alma mater, Jim Boeheim/Syracuse and Adolph Rupp/Kentucky. An awesome feat indeed.
Jim Boeheim along with former Mountaineer great and Golden State executive board member Jerry West, Kentucky coach John Calipari, Louisville’s Rick Pitino and countless former Cincinnati Bearcat and West Virginia Mountaineer players were among those to send their congratulations in a postgame ceremony.
With Huggins being from Morgantown, Wv and playing at WVU, this is most definitely a huge honor and accomplishment. Kudos to you Coach Huggins!!
