One of the trademarks of a Bob Huggins team is an athletic, overconfident guard, and Joe Toussaint (pictured) fits the bill. He stands up every drive, takes heat checks in the middle of a shooting slump, and has been yelled at by Huggy Bear no less than 30,000 times this season.*
As West Virginia and Maryland were trading leads in the second half, Toussaint drew a charge, drew another foul while frenetically trying to break the press, completed an and-1, and missed the front end of a 1-and-1. Whether you had the Terps or the Mountaineers determined if you were yelling “No, no, no, yes!” or “Yes, yes, yes, no!” Toussaint had you screaming one of them.
*As evidenced by Huggins yanking Joe for the last few minutes after he badly missed a pivot, pivot, hook shot amid the team’s second-half meltdown against Maryland.
