((HT: FSN Pittsburgh))
The "Backyard Brawl" between West Virginia and Pittsburgh is always cool to watch- regardless of the sport that's played. But things got a lot out of hand last night.
Panther associate coach Tom Herrion had been hit in the cheek by a coin thrown from the crowd after a call went against the Mountaineers.
First thing WVU Head Coach Bob Huggins did was get on the stick to talk his fans off the ledge.
But the fans didn't stop... so much for that idea... that's when Herrion got hit.
WVU won by 19, somewhat comfortably, and it was the 18th win in the last 21 games for them in the series...
"We're not going to make a big deal out of it,'' Pitt's Jamie Dixon said afterward to the West Virginia Gazette. "[Herrion is] OK. Neither teams' players did anything. It was just wrestling.
"It was an unfortunate incident, but I don't want one person to reflect on an entire university... Our guy's OK.''
