Marshall Vs. West Virginia: Bob Huggins Expects Capital Classic To Be Close

The Mountaineers of West Virginia will face the Thundering Herd of Marshall in the Capital Classic on Wednesday night, and despite the two teams playing in conferences that aren't on quite the same level, it figures to be a close game. At least that's what Mountaineers coach Bob Huggins thinks, according to Mike Casazza of the Daily Mail. Huggins recognizes that it's difficult for either team to get into a rhythm.

"It's hard," said WVU Coach Bob Huggins, who is 4-1 against Marshall with a 3-1 record with the Mountaineers. "It's hard when you have that much emotion involved, and honestly, when you have (210) fouls called in four years, it's hard to get in any flow."

Refereeing has certainly been an issue over the last few years, but the more disciplined team will come out on top, even if it takes it a while to do so.
