Every football season West Virginia and Pittsburgh match up a Big East rivalry game that's aptly named the 'Backyard Brawl.' So it stands to reason that a couple of Mountaineer athletes going to a Pittsburgh Pirates game last night would somehow end in fisticuffs. Looks like Bob Huggins' boys didn't disappoint.

To refresh your memory, Joe Mazzulla turned in one of the most impressive performances of this spring's NCAA tournament when he scored 13 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 11 assists in an upset win over Duke. But, he is after all, just a man. And who among us wouldn't be driven to drink if we were forced to endure a Pirates-Rockies game?
