"The game this year is also considered a preliminary game to the Old Spice Classic, which is in Orlando. It's not likely, but we could play Gonzaga again there. [Big 12 league partner] Oklahoma is also in it. We could end up playing [the Sooners] up to four times: twice in league play, once in Orlando and once in the Big 12 tournament."
Parsons added that neither Gonzaga nor WVU would be paying money guarantees to the other.
Gonzaga entered Monday's late game with a 104-7 home record inside the McCarthey Athletic Center, named for former newspaper publishing donors that owned the Salt Lake Tribune.
Part of the reason for the success is the enthusiasm around the Zags' program. The Center only holds 6,000, but students were camping out in the snow on Sunday to get tickets.
GU spokesman Oliver Pierce said students receive between 1,200 and 1,300 tickets per game and camp out in their Tent City to acquire them. The school provides generators for power.
Monday's game might have provoked a provoking memory for WVU's Huggins. Back in 2003, while the coach at Cincinnati, Huggins was booted from an NCAA tournament game, courtesy of official Mike Kitts.
Huggins, however, wasn't the only one ejected. In addition, Kitts kicked out UC radio announcer Chuck Machock.
The opponent that night in Salt Lake City? Gonzaga.
