At one point West Virginia looked like one of the best teams in the Big 12, but after losing three of the last four games, they have really hurt their tournament seeding. 

The Mountaineers want to be known as a good defensive team, but they need better offensive production than the 61.6 points per game they are averaging over the last five.
