The Mountaineers had to wait for the last NIT bracket to be revealed, but the WVU cagers will continue into post-season play in 2014. It's an old (but not old-old) Big East matchup
in the Verizon Center in the heart of the nation's capital on Tuesday night on ESPN at 7 pm ET.

- 2 - Georgia
- 7 - Vermont
First and second round games are played on the higher seed's home court, with the semi-finals and finals in Madison Square Garden.
