Bryant not in WVU starting lineup

INDIANAPOLIS -- Starting point guard Darryl "Truck" Bryant is not in West Virginia's starting lineup for tonight's NCAA semifinal game against Duke.

Bryant suffered a fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot March 23 in practice, but was hoping to play with the help of a protective shoe he had made for him in Hillsborough, N.C.

Nonetheless, after he practiced Friday, both Bryant and West Virginia coach Bob Huggins were pessimistic about the chances that Bryant would play. He will be replaced by junior Joe Mazzulla in the starting lineup.

Mazzulla also started and scored 17 points in the Mountaineers' East Regional final win over Kentucky.

What a bunch of low class Duke fans chanting as a WVU player is down. There was no need for that. Absolutely no class!!!!!

Duke fans were chanting the name of the player, showing respect to him. That's actually being classy, not being classless. You whining tarheels wouldn't know class if it smacked you across you sorry faces. Get back to throwing Presbyterian fans out for yelling during free throws.
