14. West Virginia Mountaineers (9-18, 4-10)

Ranking last week: 14

Games last week
77-67 win vs. UCF
71-64 loss at #6 Iowa State

Analysis: West Virginia actually had one of its best weeks in terms of competitiveness all season. They led Iowa State with less than 10 minutes to go before the Cyclones went on a run. The Mountaineers aren't as bad as their record suggests, so they'll look to play spoiler to bubble teams like K-State and Cincinnati to end Josh Eilert's inaugural campaign as head coach.
