WASHINGTON -- Back at his alma mater, back in the NCAAs, Bob Huggins looked and sounded just like the Bob Huggins everyone remembers.He yelled. He groused. He drew an early technical foul. And he willed his No. 7-seeded West Virginia past second-seeded Duke.
Big Problems For Duke
Duke has lost in the second round of the NCAA tournament four times since the field expanded to 64 teams in 1985. Three of those second round losses have come against Big East Conference teams. Overall, Duke is 9-6 against Big East teams in the NCAA tournament, but has lost four of the last seven matchups.
Climbing A New Mountain
Coach Bob Huggins is no stranger to the Sweet 16, but after Saturday's 73-67 upset of Duke, he'll be going there for the first time with West Virginia. Huggins went 3-1 in Sweet 16 games as the coach of Cincinnati.
