Huggy Bear gets extra huggy against Duke

Bob Huggins has developed a reputation as a hard-ass throughout his coaching career.  Even while watching his team get out-muscled by Duke Saturday, Huggy Bear got all warm and fuzzy.  Huggins got up close and personal with Da’Sean Butler after he suffered a serious knee injury in the second half, in a touching yet slightly creepy scene where he appeared on the verge of giving his fallen player a kiss.  The love-fest continued in the closing moments of the Mountaineers loss, when Huggins embraced and consoled his players.

What happened to the real Bob Huggins?  He should be back next year.  But for a night at least, Huggy went emo on us.
