MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Visitors to Morgantown's Salvation Army and Bartlett House homeless shelter will soon be in for a treat.

A radio station in Manhattan, Kansas -- the former home of new West Virginia men's basketball coach Bob Huggins -- is organizing a collection of "Huggieville" shirts and other Huggins paraphernalia.

The station plans to send the items to the new "Huggieville."

Corey Dean, program director at K-Rock 101.5, says there were a lot of raw nerves when Huggins decided to leave Kansas State after just one season. This campaign is an effort to keep people from just torching or throwing away good clothing.

K-Rock teamed with a local sports publication to urge listeners to send in any Huggins-related items they no longer want.

The radio station already has received 100 shirts and plans to mail them out later this week.

Bartlett House Director Keri Demasi says they'll be a big hit there.
