Bracketology 2012: West Virginia Still Projected As No. 12 Seed

The guys over at SB Nation have been putting out a new edition of their 2012 Bracketology each day this week as the Conference tournaments are sure to change the field as they continue on. They've released their Friday edition, and not much has changed.

West Virginia still comes in at a No. 12 seed, but their opponent has changed. They were scheduled to play Florida State on Thursday but now the No. 5 seed they are projected to play is Murray State, owners of a near perfect record.
