Following West Virginia’s 60-53 loss at Allen Fieldhouse to the Kansas Jayhawks, West Virginia Head Coach Bob Huggins was characteristically unhappy with the officiating. Huggins, frustrated with the lack of favorable calls for his team, called out the performance of the referees.
Huggins, in his postgame, said, “I can’t control what those three blind mice that are running around out there do or what they call.” Although Kansas was called for more fouls (19-18 advantage for the Jayhawks), the officiating was particularly one-sided in the second half.
Huggins added, “You got one guy who thinks it’s a foul and another guy that doesn’t think it’s a foul. There’s no consistency.”
The Mountaineers moved to 0-8 in program history at Allen Fieldhouse and Huggins’ frustrations are shared by West Virginia fans everywhere. However, it’s early in the season and the Mountaineers will have to regroup quickly for their 2nd Big 12 Conference game on Monday at 9-4 Oklahoma State.
