(WICHITA, Kan.) — For the first time, the teacher meets the student. Former K-State head coach and current West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins and his Mountaineers battled K-State and Frank Martin, Thursday night at INTRUST Bank Arena.
Martin was an assistant to Huggins when he was the head coach of K-State in 2006-07. The friendship between the two was evident with hugs before the game began. Then it was down to business.
Kevin Jones hit a tying 3-point shot in regulation and scored 30 points to lead West Virginia to an 85-80, double-overtime victory Thursday night over Kansas State, its future Big 12 foe.
Darryl Bryant had 25 points for West Virginia (5-2). Rodney McGruder scored 20 and Will Spradling had 16 for Kansas State (5-1).
