As signed by Governor Jim Justice, Sept. 10 will forever be known as “Bob Huggins Day” in the state of West Virginia. The WVU men’s basketball program announced the honor that Huggins received on Friday.

Sept. 10 is the date that Huggins will enter the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, which is throughout the weekend in Springfield, Mass. Huggins will become the third WVU alumni to enter the Hall of Fame.

“I’m extremely proud of what I’ve accomplished. I know what my guys think of me. I didn’t break the rules, I didn’t cheat to do it,” Huggins said on Wednesday.

Huggins has won 916 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 and his second trip of his career. He is the second in all-time coaching wins at WVU, with 326 wins.
