True regarding Huggins but the dude produces wins. KU does not win that game if 6 less fouls are called. If the Chump xii-iii+i don’t like WVU’s play they need to let Huggins know BEFORE WVU plays this deep into the season. Huggins and his players want the tourney and a win over KU helps their cause and seeding a bunch.
Clearly, officials changed foul calling for the conference’s prima donna. Good for KU, marginally good for the conference but unfair to the WVU players. WVU could not adjust to please the officials because they continued to call “ticky-tacky” fouls. Even when Officials prevented a KU loss by getting KU “in the bonus” before 10 minutes in the second half (see UH v. UC) which kept KU scoring (ibid. UH v. UC), kept the game close (ibid. UH v. UC) and led to a KU win (don’t see UH v. UC).
WVU/KU is an egregious example of offciating gone wild to protect a conference prima donna. I can only hope it erodes the conference’s cohesion and further dimishes any respect for their conference from the outside. But that’s just me.
