Bracketology 2012: West Virginia Jumps To No. 11 Seed

The folks over at SB Nation have been updating their 2012 Bracketology page each day this week, as conference tournaments results seem to shift teams and seeding daily, if not hourly. In fact, Friday's edition has the West Virginia Mountaineers as a No. 12 seed, but Saturday's post has West Virginia jumping to a No. 11 seed, taking on No. 6 seed Wichita State.
