Big 12 coaches using Smart incident to teach lesson

West Virginia coach Bob Huggins has faced plenty of verbal abuse in opposing arenas. So did Denny Crum, who coached Louisville from 1971-2001 and won a pair of national titles.

West Virginia stomps No. 11 Iowa State 102-77

It was tough to tell what Remi Dibo enjoyed more: being the centerpiece of West Virginia's 3-point show against No. 11 Iowa State, or clamping down on Big 12 scoring leader Melvin Ejim. Dibo scored a career-high 20 points to lead the Mountaineers to a 102-77 victory Monday night, the Cyclones' most lopsided loss of the season. Dibo went 6 of 8 from beyond the arc as West...

Good thing the ABC affiliate can laugh about it, in the description of the video they included the statement: Bob is OK and says he can even laugh about it now...

No. 8 KU should be able to feast on West Virginia's sub-par defense

Kansas is the Big 12's top shooting team while West Virginia allows opponents to shoot the highest percentage. Making matters worse for the Mountaineers is coach Bob Huggins' 0-7 all-time mark against the Jayhawks. Each team will likely be missing a starter as No. 8 Kansas looks to improve to 4-0 in the all-time series Saturday in Morgantown. Kansas (23-7, 14-3) is among...
