The Bison don't talk about that, Elkins said, because there's plenty of room to grow in the meantime.
"Right now, what we're working on is the mental toughness to finish at the end, to keep pushing, to keep going," he said. "They're not always going to be blow-outs. You have to play every minute of every game. Every possession counts, and keep pushing. That's what we're going to work on."
To develop that mental fortitude, the WVHIT presents a great starting point.
To reach the tournament's championship, Buffalo would potentially face No. 8 Valley again or 10th-ranked Greenbrier West before meeting the North Division winner. The North Division features among its teams: No. 6 St. Marys, Tygarts Valley, Clay-Battelle and last year's WVHIT runner-up East Hardy.
"We don't have to play all of them, but it's something our kids really look forward to," Elkins said.
As the No. 1 seed, Buffalo will play three home games before play finishes Feb. 9 at Summersville Arena.
To assert Buffalo enters the tournament without experience, though, wouldn't be true. The team returned 13 members from its regional runner-up squad.
The team's last two losses were both to Charleston Catholic — in last season's regional championship and a seven- point defeat this season.
Even at 11-1, Good said the team's ready to grow and improve.
"We're not where we should be, but we're slowly climbing," he said, "and hopefully as long as we keep climbing, keep playing games going deeper in the season we'll finally get that No. 1 spot."
If the Bison reach that mark, there's little doubt Buffalo's play and lessons learned from the WVHIT will be a big factor.
