WOAY – West Virginia men’s basketball will return to action Thursday when they play Bucknell in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in Buffalo, New York.
The Mountaineers will be the fourth seed of the West region in their third straight NCAA appearance.
West Virginia enters the tournament with a 26-8 record, tying for second in the Big 12 regular season, and finishing runner-up in the conference tournament for a second straight year.
The Mountaineers’ all-time NCAA Tournament record is 27-27, though they are 9-7 under current head coach Bob Huggins. He led WVU to their best-ever finish in the tournament when they reached the 2010 Final Four.
Should West Virginia beat the Bison, they would face Notre Dame or Princeton on Saturday.
