FREE-THROWS

Bob Huggins, head coach at West Virginia after his team shot two free-throws against Kansas.  The Jayhawks attempted 35.

“I’ve been doing this 40 years. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a game where we shot two free throws. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a game where the disparity is 35-2. I’ve never been in a game like that.

“That sad part is [the Jayhawks] don’t need it. That’s a good team. They’re very well-coached. They don’t need that. They don’t need somebody to do that. I’m going to tell you what: There’s something wrong to do that to kids who are playing their hearts out.”

Kansas overcame a 12-point deficit in the second half and trailed 66-58 with 3:47 remaining.

Huggins said the officials should have to entertain reporters’ questions about their performance.

“Officials want to be part of the game, but they don’t want to be the part to the game that has to answer. Why aren’t they here answering your questions?” the coach said.

JAE CROWDER

On being in Utah playing with the Jazz.

“I’m getting back to having fun, playing the game the right way. It’s just fun to be out there with a good group of guys that are so connected. They’re just very connected and they’ve welcomed me since Day One. I’m glad to be a part of it.”

RIP TIMMY LEARY

We lost one of the good guys in coaching; former St. Francis Prep boys basketball coach Timmy Leary has passed away.
