MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — The West Virginia Mountaineers basketball team is back in action tonight at the WVU Coliseum in an exhibition charity game against George Mason and former West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins is in attendance. Huggins, 70, was forced to resign after his DUI arrest in Pittsburgh over the summer.
Huggins appears very slim and looks like he’s lost a ton of weight. According to Huggins’ close friend and UMASS head coach Frank Martin, Huggins hasn’t had a drink since his arrest.

Tonight’s exhibition starts at 7:00PM and will be shown live on ESPN+. West Virginia head coach Josh Eilert had the following to say about the game: “It’s an exhibition game and we’re going to try to win it, but we’ve got to figure out what we need to improve on so when Missouri State comes to town, we’re a well-oiled machine come Nov. 6.”
