The race to the NCAA postseason becomes a lot of fun this time of year, and yesterday, we released the latest postseason field of 64 projections. But that's not all there is to the postseason landscape.

There also are those teams that narrowly missed the field, such as West Virginia, Illinois State, High Point, Texas A&M, Auburn, Kansas, Georgia, Southern Miss, UC Irvine, East Carolina, Sam Houston State and Southern California.


To give players, coaches and fans alike a better idea of where these teams stand in the pecking order, the pluses and minuses of their resumes, and what needs to happen moving forward, we breakdown the postseason situations for all of those programs.




BUBBLE WATCH


WEST VIRGINIA


RPI: 30

Records: 21-16 overall, 1-4 vs. RPI Top 25, 3-7 vs. RPI Top 50, 12-13 vs. RPI Top 100

Pluses: Very good RPI, 12 wins vs. RPI Top 100 teams, 15 road wins, Top 50 non-conference RPI

Minuses: 4-7 record in the Big 12 must improve, losing record vs. RPI Top 50, Oklahoma (96 RPI) is the “marquee” series win on this resume.

Overall: Randy Mazey's club would be dangerous in the NCAA postseason if they can just find a way to get there. WVU has a stout weekend rotation and enough offense to make some noise in June. With that said, it's safe to say WVU needs to finish strong with Kansas State (82), Texas (8), Kansas (68) and Texas Tech (12) still left on the schedule.
