Oklahoma State and Texas stay alive on day one

Oklahoma State and Texas stay alive on day one

The Jayhawks earned the regular season title, and they've won 14 consecutive and 61 overall conference titles, which are NCAA records. Zhaire Smith has been reliable for the Red Raiders but is far from being a 2nd option on a contending team in my eyes.

LIU-Brooklyn and Wagner split a pair of meetings during the regular season. Yes, they have played a tough schedule and have big wins that include the big comeback at West Virginia, rebounding to beat Texas Tech on the road to win the Big 12, and winning at TCU.

The Jayhawks (24-7) and Red Raiders (23-8) are comfortably in the field of 68, though they still have plenty on the line. The win by Texas moves them on to face Texas Tech in Thursday's game.

"I didn't expect to be in this position, by any means", Young said.

"It's the free throws hurting us and today was turnovers", Dixon said. We have to keep grinding and fight our way out. So I'm not satisfied at all. The Horned Frogs can start the NCAA Tournament in Dallas with a run in Kansas City.

Newman, the Big 12 Newcomer of the Year, was on fire early. Paul Pierce, Kevin Durant, DeMarre Carroll and Iowa State guard Monte Morris last season have been tourney MVPs, building up a collection of excellence over three games. Hungry Oklahoma must win the tournament to gain March Madness.

Jalen Brunson, Mikal Bridges and Villanova hopped over Xavier to reach No. 2 in Monday's poll, though Trevon Bluiett and the No. 3 Musketeers are the No. 1 seed in the Big East Tournament. Though both teams are still on the good side of the NCAA tournament bubble according to Washington Post bracketologist Patrick Stevens, things could change before Selection Sunday depending on the how the remaining bubble teams fare, and if any program comes out of nowhere to steal a bid.

He alleged some people could be victims of "confirmation bias", making it easy to leave out an Oklahoma State team picked to finish last in the Big 12. "I'm not sure if it's close".

"It is isolated", Kansas coach Bill Self said of the MCL sprain. The echoes of a boisterous chant from Oklahoma State's celebrating locker room cascaded through the halls of the Sprint Center before briefly overtaking Young's news conference.

Baylor, which takes on West Virginia in the quarterfinals, probably needs to win a game. No Other Pub opens at 9 a.m. Thursday as the KU-themed bar. The Sooners have lost eight of their last 10 games and are in the midst of a 10-game losing streak away from the Lloyd Noble Center.

Saturday's semifinals - Game 7, Game 3 victor vs.

They strengthened their résumé even more by knocking off rival Oklahoma in the first round of the Big 12 Tournament on Wednesday. "I don't know nine will make it, but I certainly think there's nine deserving teams". Wigginton seems to just be scratching the surface of his overall abilities but he has shown promise with his natural scoring abilities and athleticism.

McFadden's bar is the official headquarters for Kansas State fans. Well, it's about the best hyperbole to describe the Big 12 basketball season to date - a knock-down, drag-out slugfest featuring all sorts of blows that have Big 12 coaches proudly crowing it as the strongest league in the country. "I've done this 39 years, been in the Big Ten when it's been really good, the Missouri Valley, watched other leagues - it's the best I've ever been part of, one through 10".
