There might not be one great team this season, but teams such as Oklahoma, Purdue and West Virginia have been pleasant surprises. Now we have to wait and see if they can really challenge for a national title.

Postgame incident at Texas Tech under review

The Big 12 Conference is investigating a postgame incident Saturday in which multiple videos circulating on social media appear to show a West Virginia player throw a punch at someone participating in a postgame court-storming at Texas Tech.

Kansas-West Virginia on Monday is a high-leverage game for the Big 12 regular season title. The Jayhawks will have a 46% chance to win the title outright with a win, 21% with a loss. The Mountaineers will have a 19% shot at the outright title with a win, 5% with a loss.

Despite being ranked No. 2 in the latest AP poll, West Virginia is just the 12th-best team in Division I going forward and has only a 4% chance to earn a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, per BPI. Two main reasons for the disparity: 1. The Mountaineers have not been *that* efficient given the schedule they have faced. They rank 14th in adjusted net efficiency. 2. They have the eighth-hardest remaining strength of schedule in Division I.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

West Virginia went over five minutes without a basket late in the second half, yet Bob Huggins' team managed to survive at home against Baylor, 57-54. With Texas Tech having lost tonight at Oklahoma, the Mountaineers are in sole possession of first place in the Big 12. For now.
