Despite the missed opportunity earlier this week, West Virginia still stands in prime position to compete for an NCAA Tournament appearance. Let’s take a look at WVU’s updated rankings.

NET / 24

KenPom / 19

Bracketology / 11-seed

*as of Thursday morning (2/2)

West Virginia has five quad-1 wins: Auburn, TCU, Texas Tech, Florida and Pitt. The Mountaineers are one of the few teams in the country with that amount of quad-1 wins. WVU has started out Big 12 play 2-7 but has two home games coming up against  Oklahoma and Iowa State.

West Virginia will host Oklahoma on Saturday at 8 p.m. The Mountaineers and Sooners will tipoff on ESPN NEWS and then will switch to ESPN2 following the conclusion of the Lakers-Pelicans NBA game.
