With a fourth straight win, the NCAA tournament bubble talk will continue to gain steam and for good reason. After beating Georgetown, it was a bit early, but now we're at four wins since Tray Woodall's return. My contention is still that 21 games gets them in.
Now, with seven games left, we're still a while away from seeing how this plays out. But having won four straight now, Pitt is getting into good position and it's hard to ignore.
It's mostly meaningless, but I still follow Joe Lunardi's Bracketology on ESPN. Obviously, Pitt hasn't been anywhere near it since losing eight in a row, but that could change. I'll be interested to see where Pitt comes out in his rankings this week. Who knows if he'll put the Panthers in his bracket, but last week, he had a then 15-8 West Virginia team with a five seed. Pitt is 15-9 with the win on Saturday and beat the Mountaineers in Morgantown this week.
