West Virginia men's basketball coach Bob Huggins was hospitalized with four broken ribs Friday after an accidental fall in his hotel room in Las Vegas during a recruiting trip.

Mr. Huggins was in Las Vegas -- along with many other college basketball coaches -- to attend an AAU basketball tournament.

"I spoke with associate head coach Larry Harrison [Saturday] morning who was with coach Huggins recruiting in Las Vegas," West Virginia athletics director Oliver Luck said in a statement. "Coach Huggins did fall in his hotel room Friday and broke four ribs. He was taken to a Las Vegas hospital and was held overnight for observation. He is expected to be released later [Saturday], and we expect him to make a complete recovery."
