If the season were to end today, it's all but certain West Virginia would find itself on the NCAA tournament bubble. The Mountaineers claim impressive victories over Kansas State, Akron and Georgetown but also sport some ugly losses, especially the recent road loss to a St. John's team that started five freshmen.

It's a shame because senior Kevin Jones is having a player of the year-caliber season. We've written about the forward previously, but now that WVU is in the midst of Big East play, it's worth taking a look at how Jones' PER has progressed over the course of the past two months.
