WVU Will Earn 8,9 or 10 Seed in Big East Tourney


The West Virginia University men's basketball team is still alive for a first round bye in the Big East Tournament. If the tournament started today, WVU would be seeded ninth and face the 16 seed DePaul in the first round. DePaul is locked into the 16 seed. Syracuse is locked into the top seed. Those are the only teams locked into a seed right now.

WVU can earn a first round bye and the eight seed if it beats South Florida Saturday afternoon and Seton Hall loses to DePaul.

A West Virginia win will give WVU no worse than the nine seed.

WVU can fall to the 10 seed if it loses to South Florida and Connecticut beats Pitt.

All of those games will be played on Saturday. WVU visits USF at noon. UCONN hosts Pitt at noon. Seton Hall visits DePaul at 6 p.m.
