Morgantown, West Virginia – Bob Huggins appeared on Inside TBT, the official podcast of The Basketball Tournament. The Basketball Tournament (TBT) is an annual basketball tournament featuring alumni from various schools around the nation.
Best Virginia is a team full of former Huggins’ players and he weighed in on the team’s potential heading into the tournament. If both teams win in the first two rounds, Best Virginia will match up against Marshall’s alumni team “Herd That” in the Sweet 16.
The host of the show asked Huggins what he thought of the Marshall/West Virginia rivalry and Huggins said without hesitation that it’s not a “rivalry” at all.
“It’s not a rivalry. They (Marshall) have to win one once in a while before it becomes a rivalry.”
West Virginia owns a 34-11 series victory over Marshall and has won six games in a row over the Thundering Herd. The last time the two teams met, West Virginia defeated Marshall 94-71 back in 2018.
