Bracketology Update Before WVU Faces Oklahoma

Well, Joe Lunardi was a man of his word. Earlier in the week, Lunardi tweeted out that the winner of West Virginia-Texas Tech would get pushed up to a 3-seed.

Lunardi moved the Mountaineers up to a 3-seed in his latest Bracketology release on Friday.

Region 3:

  1. Michigan / 16. Sam Houston St.
  2. Alabama / 15. UMBC
  3. West Virginia / 14. UC Irvine
  4. USC / 13. UNC Greensboro
  5. Oklahoma / 12. Utah State
  6. Creighton / 11. Boise St.
  7. Colorado / 10. Indiana
  8. Clemson / 9. BYU

Big 12 Seeds

  • Baylor – 1 Seed
  • Texas Tech – 3 Seed
  • West Virginia – 3 Seed
  • Texas – 4 Seed
  • Kansas – 5 Seed
  • Oklahoma – 5 Seed
  • Oklahoma St. – 8 Seed

This would be an ideal region for WVU as a 3-seed. Michigan and Alabama are very great teams, but I would be confident in giving them games. The potential second round matchup of Creighton/Boise St. would be very interesting for WVU. If I had to pick now, I would want to play the Jayhawks, rather than the Broncos.

Today’s game against Oklahoma is another pivotal game for both teams. If OU wins, they’ll probably rise a seed. If WVU can pull off their fourth-straight win, they could potentially move up to a 2-seed. Having the Baylor series next week getting postponed could save WVU from dropping.

Still a lot of basketball to be played, but it’s nice to see the Mountaineers play so well since the Florida loss.
