Big 12 NCAA Bracket Breakdown
The West Virginia Mountaineers
Bob Huggins has grown a reputation for his “Press” Virginia, though his style of play always seems to fail come tournament time. Remember the whopping the Mountaineers took by Kentucky in 2011?
Can Bob Huggins break the spell of West Virginia’s ineffectiveness in the NCAA Tournament? With no true talents other than Jevon Carter, I have some serious doubts about this Mountaineer team.
West Virginia should have no problems at all with Bucknell. This is where their press will work wonders. Bucknell should tire out right after halftime to seal up an easy win.
Prediction: West Virginia 72, Bucknell 56
Just like every year, the press will once again fail in the tournament. Notre Dame is a strong team with one of my favorite athletes in Bonzie Colson. They should have no problem getting past the press. West Virginia might need to consider a new postseason plan to get past their woes.
Prediction: West Virginia 64, Notre Dame 71
