After a wild sequence of events in the Big 12 Conference, WVU men’s basketball knows its seed for the league tournament.
The Mountaineers will be the No. 6 seed at the Big 12 Championship, after securing a first-round bye thanks to its 76-64 victory over No. 4 Baylor. They’ll face three-seed Oklahoma in the quarterfinals Thursday at 9 p.m. ET in Kansas City.
West Virginia concludes the regular season in the a three-way tie for third place in Big 12 standings. The Mountaineers would have claimed the three seed in the tournament had TCU not blown a double-digit second half lead to Oklahoma Saturday. The Sooners won that game 78-76, fueled by 41 points from Austin Reaves.
Kansas is the top seed in the tournament and Baylor is the two seed. No. 7 TCU will play No. 10 Kansas State in one first round game, while No. 8 Oklahoma State will meet No. 9 Iowa State in the other.
