Huggins' family donates $100,000 to WVU college

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- West Virginia University basketball coach Bob Huggins and his wife, June, have donated $100,000 to WVU's College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences.

The university says the donation will be used to create an endowment that will help provide scholarships each year for two undergraduate students majoring in athletic coaching education. It also will help support the college's new building currently under construction.

Bob Huggins graduated with honors from the college in 1977.

He says the university means so much to his family, and he and his wife are happy to give back.

The gift announced Wednesday was made to the WVU Foundation as part of the "State of Minds'' fund-raising campaign.
