"No, we really hadn't worked much on those combinations in practice,'' Mazzulla said.
As for Bryant and Jennings' status tonight, Huggins said it was still flexible.
"They were both pretty good [Monday],'' Huggins said.
So does that mean they will play tonight?
"Every day's a new day,'' Huggins said. "I'm not making any predictions.''
American's star is 6-foot-9, 215-pound Romanian center Vlad Moldoveanu, who is averaging 21.2 points and was a first-team All-Patriot League selection last season. Stephen Lumpkins, a 6-8 sophomore, averages 14.5 points and 9.3 rebounds for AU, while Georgia transfer Troy Brewer, a 6-5 guard, averages 13.8 points.
That was a game in which Huggins was the point guard on a WVU team that included Warren Baker, Stan Boskovich, Maurice Robinson and Jerome Anderson. Huggins on Tuesday said he did not recall the game or his 4-for-11 shooting night, and joked that the loss wasn't his fault.
"It was probable Bake,'' he said.
