West Virginia is 5-5 in its last 10 games but -- like most Big East teams -- has a lot of Top 50 RPI wins. Its victory over Notre Dame on Saturday was key as the Mountaineers are now 6-6 against the Top 50 and 4-5 against the Top 25. They get a couple more shots for good wins too, with a trip to Pittsburgh and a home date with Connecticut coming up. Best win:
at Georgetown (RPI: 5) Worst loss:
(N) Marshall (RPI: 61) Mitigating factor:
Oh, c'mon. Every year West Virginia has some big goober who happens to be great at basketball. The committee would be silly not to include them. Verdict:
In. Their seed had taken a dip before the ND win, but West Virginia is still safe.
