As it seemed like a potential bubble buster on Wednesday night for the West Virginia basketball program, ESPN’s Joe Lunardi placed the Mountaineers in the “last four byes” section of his daily bubble update. WVU los their fourth-straight game, losing to Oklahoma 72-62, on Wednesday night.

Before the Oklahoma game, Lunardi had ESPN in the main field of the tournament. It’s a little surprising that West Virginia didn’t fall down to the “last four in.”

The NET rankings were updated on Thursday morning, with West Virginia falling down to No. 57, eight spots from where they were at. West Virginia’s NET ranking is ninth in the Big 12. WVU is 2-5 in quad-one games and 3-1 in quad-two games.
