Quote of the day

In last night's West Virginia-Duke game, star Mountaineer Da'Sean Butler went down with what looked to be a serious knee injury. West Virginia coach Bob Huggins came out on the floor to comfort his star and could be clearly heard saying to referee John Higgins, "They don't foul, do they John. This kid's an All-American."

Higgins, a Big 12 referee, and Huggins, of the one-year coaching stint at Kansas State, have had their share of run-ins before, even if only during that one season. But, the quote affirmed those of us who question Higgins' refereeing prowess as well as those who insist that there is an inequality in how games are called when Duke is involved.
