Frank Martin, Kansas State Vs. Bob Huggins, West Virginia In Basketball Next Year?

The rumor making the rounds is that Frank Martin's Kansas State Wildcats will play Bob Huggins and West Virginia at Wichita's Intrust Bank arena. It's not exactly a "rumor" because Huggins himself made the announcement on his weekly radio show, according to the Kansas City Star.

Huggins, who coached K-State during the 2006-07 season, made the announcement during his weekly radio show in Morgantown on Monday after dining with Frank Martin, his former assistant, on Sunday. The schools have been discussing a series of neutral-court games, but neither West Virginia nor K-State officials could confirm a Wichita game Tuesday.

Why would this matchup be interesting? 

Because it would be student vs. teacher. When Huggins was coaching Kansas State in 2006-07, Martin was his top assistant. 

I have a feeling Kansas State fans can come up with some good Bob Huggins chants for this one.
