Breaking Down the Sweet Sixteen

East Region (2): West Virginia (29-6)

STRENGTHS: The defense is a Huggins trademark. But his team is particularly hard for opponents to match up against because it has size everywhere. Not many guards find it easy to score against the 6-7 Butler and Ebanks. Not many teams find it easy to stop them either.

WEAKNESSES: Top 10 teams don't tend to have many weaknesses, and the Mountaineers are no exception. But WVU doesn't always get great play from the point, with Bryant sometimes struggling with turnovers and distribution decisions. It doesn't want the game to become a total track meet, and prefers to force opponents into the half-court sets on offense so it can use its size to full effect. (AP Photo/ David Duprey)
