UB draws West Virginia in NCAA Tournament

By Nick Veronica

UB earned a 12-seed in its first-ever NCAA Tournament and will open against 5-West Virginia on Friday in Columbus, Ohio. Tip is scheduled for 2:10 p.m. (game on TNT).

A 12-seed is a good draw for UB. In the last two NCAA Tournaments, 12-seeds have upset 5-seeds six out of eight times.
