MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Both WVU basketball teams are going dancing, and Gold and Blue Nation is here to get you ready for the fun. 

On the latest edition of The Gold and Blue Nation Podcast, presented by Pritt & Spano, we break down the bracket for both Mountaineer basketball teams and preview their potential road to the Sweet 16. 

The Mountaineer men are a No. 9-seed in the tournament. Their quest begins Thursday at noon ET against No. 8-seed Maryland in the first round. 

Meanwhile, the Mountaineer women are a No. 10-seed and will face No. 7-seed Arizona in their opener. That game will be played Friday in College Park, Maryland.
