Everhart took a spill right where Huggins sat laughing at the dramatization and then proceeded to re-enact what he believed to be the words Huggins might or might not have used after Huggins' apparent accidental fall in a Las Vegas hotel room in July.
"I've fallen, and I can't get up," cried Everhart, a native West Virginian and Huggins' longtime friend.
"I've busted my ribs. I tripped over the pizza box."
Everhart's act highlighted a night in which speakers including Kentucky's John Calipari and Kansas State's Frank Martin made jokes at Huggins' expense to raise money for cancer.
Huggins did have the final say, relating a humorous story about Martin recently pumping gas in Topeka, Kan., and seemingly being recognized by a fellow patron who asked if he was the basketball coach.
Martin said yes.
"Honey," the guy yelled into his car. "I told you it was Bruce Pearl."
