WVU head coach Bob Huggins’ Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame enshrinement will be celebrated pregame against Buffalo on Sunday. Huggins was the third West Virginia alumni to be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame back in September.

“I’m forever grateful to be enshrined with the basketball legends in this Hall of Fame. I’m truly blessed and extremely humbled to be joining you,” Huggins said in his induction speech. “Thank you.”

Huggins has won 924 career games spanning five coaching tenures at Walsh College, Akron, Cincinnati, Kansas State, and West Virginia. Huggins returned to his alma mater in 2007, taking the Mountaineers to their second Final Four in school history in 2010. He is the second in all-time coaching wins at WVU, with 334 wins.

West Virginia and Buffalo will tip-off at 5 p.m. on Sunday at the WVU Coliseum. The Mountaineers and Bulls will play on ESPN+.
