Bob Huggins Sheds a Happy Tear Over Cincinnati Tribute

John CroomContributor IFebruary 27, 2009

Coach Bob Huggins of West Virginia had to play the former school he coached for, the Cincinnati Bearcats, at Cincinnati's home court.

They opened it up with a special presentation to Coach Bob Huggins with a video of how he affected the Cincinnati basketball era overall. Coach Huggins received a nickname while coaching for Cincinnati, which was "Huggs," received by showing his affection by hugging on court and care for the players on the court.

It was overall a moving video that showed appreciation for the 14 straight visits to the NCAA tournament and the 399 overall wins. Coach "Huggs" may be tough, but he did happen to tear up that Thursday night.
