WASHINGTON -- Bob Huggins saw a bit too much daydreaming from his players when he was going over the scouting reports on West Virginia's upcoming opponents, so the coach morphed into a high-school teacher to get his point across.Here's a play: Come up to the board and draw it. Here's a test to take before every game. What does this guy do? Does he go right-handed, left-handed? Were you even paying attention?Huggins started the tactic three games ago, and it started to pay dividends Saturday, when the Mountaineers set aside their sluggish Big East start for a 65-59 win over No. 13 Georgetown."I've done it before when I've had knuckleheads," Huggins said. "Our attention to detail wasn't very good. You put a test in there and then you kind of find out who's paying attention."
