Following West Virginia’s 76-74 loss to No. 3 Kansas, ESPN bracketologist Joe Lunardi moved WVU down to “last four in.”

If the NCAA Tournament started today, West Virginia would head to Dayton with Wisconsin, Mississippi State and Oklahoma State.

WVU’s NET ranking stayed at No. 27 while their KenPom fell one spot to No. 21. With the metrics the Mountaineers have, it’s tough to leave them out despite the 16-13 record. West Virginia will need to secure one or two more wins before Selection Sunday.

West Virginia currently has four quad-1 wins as of Sunday: Iowa State, TCU, Pitt and Texas Tech. The Mountaineers will have two more opportunities for a quad-1 win against Iowa State on Monday and Kansas State on Saturday.
