While it was hardly the worst injury suffered on Saturday night, Da’Sean Butler seriously hurt his knee in West Virginia’s Final Four loss to Duke. Unlike Andrew Bogut’s painful fall, though, the replay of Butler’s injury isn’t disgusting to watch. In fact, not only will the replay not make you queasy, it just may make you shed a tear.
Watch how Bob Huggins reacts. Watch how he consoles Butler. No wonder so many players swear by Huggy. Like Austin Freeman, Georgetown’s top wing player, tweeted: “he been that cool for a long time.”
