Interview with Charlie Creme
Q. What conferences do you see as a bid stealer?
Charlie Creme stated:

The other MAC, the Mid-American, I'm actually still wrestling with
a little bit, they're still playing, and Buffalo and Central Michigan are still into the semis of their conference tournament.

I think if 1 of those 2 teams were to lose in the semis on Friday, March 9,
not only would it be a bid-stealing situation,
it might open up a spot.
I think a loss in the semis would be enough to move one of those two teams out.

The reason they're both in right now
is just history tells us what the Committee does with this RPI, and their RPI's are both in the Top-30 and it's a pretty rare that teams get left out in those instances. But the resume of those two teams are kind of iffy, other than that number. I'm thinking if they both don't make the final of the Mid-American, one of them is going to fall out."

- Angela Yang, ESPN Media, 8 March 2018

Possible opportunity for #66 West Virginia or #67 Oklahoma to move up.

Central Michigan (CMU) & Buffalo (UB) both won their semifinal games on Friday
and will play in the MAC conference tournament final Saturday morning.

Rutgers over WVU? Nah...
Gruvin, I agree. Wish that Creme believed the NCAA Committee felt the same way ...

NCAA TOURNAMENT BUBBLE



"The top line is deceiving: despite an overall mark of 16-14, the Sooners are 11-7 in the Big 12, played the second-toughest schedule in the nation, and own wins over tournament teams like Belmont, West Virginia and South Florida. The two break down precisely how Coale schedules, why she does it, and how it impacts her team."

NCAA TOURNAMENT BUBBLE

March 1, 2018

"The WVU women's basketball team enters the Big 12 tournament knowing it needs something positive in order to qualify for the NCAA tournament. It happened a year ago, as the Mountaineers pulled off upsets of Oklahoma, Texas and Baylor to win the tournament.

If it doesn't happen again,
WVU head coach Mike Carey said he would leave it up to his seniors whether the Mountaineers would continue on to the WNIT.

"If they really wanted to do it, we would do it," Carey said. "If they didn't want to do it, we wouldn't, because you don't have to go to the NIT. I would leave it up to the seniors."

As it stands, the Mountaineers (20-10, 8-10 Big 12) are firmly on the NCAA tourney bubble, heading into their Big 12 quarterfinal game, against Oklahoma State (20-9, 11-7), on March 3. Both teams need a win in order to improve their chances at NCAA tournament selection. In the Mountaineers' case, they may need more than one win.

"If we win one, I don't know if that's enough," Carey said. "We needed to be better at the end of the season, and we didn't get it done. We dug a hole for ourselves. We may need one win. We may need two. We may need to win the tournament."

The Mountaineers went 4-6 over their final 10 games of the regular season. Oklahoma State swept WVU during the regular season, including a 79-69 victory in Morgantown, on Feb. 24, in which WVU held a 14-point lead midway through the second quarter.

If WVU is not selected for the NCAA tourney,
there are pros and cons to playing in the WNIT.

Pros It would lengthen the career of senior forward Teana Muldrow, who played in a postseason tournament during her first three seasons of eligibility. Muldrow was named first-team all-Big 12 on Wednesday, and could become just the fourth WVU women's player to reach 1,000 rebounds in a career she's at 919 which would go along with the 1,674 points she's scored.

It would also add to the development of younger players, such as freshmen Ashley Jones and Destiny Harden, who have not developed as well as Carey would have liked this season.

"I was telling them the other day, there are about three people on this team I can write down and they're very consistent on how many points they're going to have and rebounds and all of that," he said. "Past that, I have no idea what we're going to do."

Cons It would also lengthen the careers of seniors Kristina King and Chania Ray, who are already playing hurt. King uses a fiberglass brace in her shoe to help her deal with the pain of an fractured foot, while Ray is dealing with a knee injury that has noticeably slowed her in games and keeps her from practicing on most occasions.

"We haven't practiced her since the last game," Carey said.

Injuries took a heavy toll on the Mountaineers this season:
.. Tynice Martin (foot injury) missed the entire season
.. Anja Martin (hip) missed the entire season
.. Krystaline McCune (knee injury) out for all but 5 games
.. Enter the Big 12 tournament with 9 available scholarship players

WVU last played in the WNIT in 2015
and advanced to the championship game before falling to UCLA, 62-60.

"If they really wanted to do it, we would go and try to win it all," Carey said. "I don't want to get into it just thinking we want to be there. If we're going to go into it, we're going to go into it hard."

    NCAA apparently chose in alphabetical order because the first 4 got in and the 4 on the right were left out.
