West Virginia outlasts Bucknell in 86-80 first-round win

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Coach Bob Huggins has spent the past 10 seasons establishing West Virginia's reputation on playing a stifling press defense.

The Mountaineers performance on Thursday left Huggins relatively unimpressed despite opening the NCAA Tournament with an 86-80 win over Bucknell on Thursday.

"Well, we weren't very good today," Huggins said.
