Almost Heaven, West Virginia

#6 West Virginia handled #2 Pitt 70-51 Wednesday night in Morgantown, and once again the Mountaineer fans raised the level of their game. Last week WVU students and fans were admonished for screaming vulgarities at opposing players and coaches from Ohio State and Louisville on two national telecasts.

Last night Mountaineer students and fans threw bottles and T-shirts onto the floor with 12:10 remaining. That prompted West Virginia coach Bob Huggins to address the crowd.

Huggins speech was so effective that later, during a timeout, Pitt associate head coach Tom Herrion was hit in his face by a coin. This is at a game where the Mountaineers had a 10 point lead and would eventually win by 19.

You Stay Classy Morgantown
