HARTFORD, Conn. -- West Virginia coach Mike Carey typically spends more than two hours of a three-hour practice working on defense.That showed Sunday, when the Mountaineers (No. 9 ESPN/USA Today, No. 7 AP) inched past DePaul 47-41 in one of the lowest scoring games in Big East tournament history."This team particularly has really bought into our defensive concept and really likes to play defense," Carey said. "Defense is just a matter of heart and wanting to play it and wanting to play a little bit more than the other team, and this team has really bought into that."
