Based upon my viewings of WVU and some of their recent duds in March, they will be a team pretty vulnerable to an early exit. zero chance they go deep in the tournament either

I’ll give them credit for last year, but obviously the year before they got smoked by a 14 seed in round 1.

I fondly remember the 2012 round 1 loss to a Gonzaga team that wasn’t even very good...weren’t they down about 30 in the first half? Just a putrid performance. They also lost to Dayton in 2009....so yeah, 3 losses to mid majors in round 1 too.

I’m not trying to flame, and no team is that good this year, but I will be absolutely straight shocked if they get out of the sweet 16 and most likely won’t even get out of the round of 32, gift matchups aside

WVU was 19-13 and a 10 seed in that 2012 loss to Gonzaga. We sucked.

2009 we lost 1st round as a young 6 seed team. 2016 we choked as 3 seed.

Other than that, we've played to our seed or better 8 out of the last 10 times we played in the NCAA Tourney.

2005 Elite 8 (7 seed)
2006 Sweet 16 (6 seed)
2008 Sweet 16 (7 seed)
2009 First Round (6 seed)
2010 Final Four (2 seed)
2011 Rd of 32 (5 seed)
2012: 1st Round (10 seed)
2015: Sweet 16 (5 seed)
2016: First Round (3 seed)
2017: Sweet 16 (4 seed)
