(AP) -- Dayton is haunted by Bob Huggins no longer. Chris Wright scored a career-high 27 points to lead the 11th-seeded Flyers to a 68-60 win over sixth-seeded West Virginia on Vriday in the first round of the Midwest Regional.

Charles Little added 18 points for Dayton (27-7), which had been 1-13 against the Mountaineers coach, dating to Huggins' days storming up and down the Cincinnati sideline. These Flyers aren't as easily intimidated by his huffing and puffing.

Darryl Bryant had 21 points and Devin Ebanks added 14 points and 12 rebounds for West Virginia (23-12), which had won at least two games in the NCAA Tournament in each of its last four appearances.

The Flyers will play third-seeded Kansas in the second round Sunday. The Jayhawks defeated North Dakota State 84-74 earlier in the day.
