WVU's Bob Huggins Gave An Awesome Answer When Asked If He's Nostalgic About Playing In Ohio

Bob Huggins seems pretty happy before NCAA Tournament game.

Bob Huggins, 61, spent most of his life in the state of Ohio. He was born in West Virginia but grew up in Port Washington, a small town about an hour and a half from Columbus. From 1984-2005, he was a head coach in the state; at Akron from '84-'89 and Cincinnati from '89-'05. 

This weekend, Huggins' West Virginia squad is playing its NCAA Tournament games in Columbus. 

Huggins was asked by a reporter if he's nostalgic about being back in the state he lived decades of his life in. He is not.
