ESPN Bracketology Update - 11/29

A look at where the Mountaineers sit in the latest bracketology projection.

After a successful trip out west to the PK85, the West Virginia Mountaineers return home with a 6-1 record with blowout wins over Portland State and Florida and a 12-point loss to now 5th-ranked Purdue. 

With the impressive showing in Portland, West Virginia has jumped into the top 30 of the KenPom ratings to No. 28 and are also receiving votes in this week's AP Top 25 poll.

ESPN bracketologist, Joe Lunardi, also liked what he saw from the Mountaineers over the Thanksgiving weekend and moved them up three seed lines to a No. 8 seed in the EAST region.
