The simple answer is this: WVU needs to win, maybe just one more game, and the Mountaineers should be in *very* good shape to host one of the 16 NCAA tournament regionals next weekend.

West Virginia plays Texas Tech on Saturday morning needing to win just one game to eliminate the Red Raiders and advance to Sunday’s Big 12 championship game. Texas Tech checks in at No. 10 — one spot ahead of WVU — in the latest RPI available at NCAA.com. Beating TTU tomorrow morning would give West Virginia a 5-1 season series advantage against the Red Raiders.

WVU unveils new design for Coliseum floor

WVU has been teasing a new floor design at the Coliseum for a few days on social media, and on Thursday morning the school shared a rendering of their plans for the home of Mountaineer basketball.

The school announced the arena’s basketball floor design would get a makeover last April. With the recent efforts to rebrand the look of the athletic department, the new font on the wordmarks was pretty much guaranteed. I’m not crazy about the mountains along the bottom (kinda looks like the Mountain East Conference logo, no?), but I think all the blue will be an improvement. Between the lighting and old color scheme for the floor, the Coliseum looked awfully yellow on TV and in photos.

What do you think of the new floor design at the WVU Coliseum? Share it in the comments below.
