  • Oklahoma State Beats Oklahoma In Big 12 Opening Round

On Wednesday, March 7, the Big 12 tournament from the Sprint Center in Kansas City gets underway.

The sophomore's buzzer-beater was the only shot he made after he missed his first three attempts and then he fouled out early in overtime. We've got to come out with the mindset that we're playing for March Madness. Wade could end up on an National Basketball Association team due to his size and ability to stretch the floor.

"They didn't quit the whole time", K-State head coach Bruce Weber said. "We were just a step slow to loose balls". We just happened to play them this year. He had 12 points and three rebounds in their 66-64 overtime win. This was one of their most hard-fought games of the season. The Jayhawks scored more than 81 points per game, with guard Devonte Graham leading the way. Since the Big 12's inception in 1996-97, Kansas is 20-2 in its first games, 1-0 in opening round games, 19-3 in the quarterfinals, 12-6 in semifinals and 10-2 in championship games. Led by star guard Trae Young, they were ranked fourth in the nation in mid-January, but went 8-10 in the league and plummeted to the No. 9 seed for the tournament. The list goes on and on.

The Wildcats can probably lock themselves into a bid now, if they hadn't already.

K-State beat TCU 66-64 in OT. Cam Lard was becoming one of my favorite players in the conference as a freshman. KU pulls down 35.4 rebounds per game and has outrebounded two of its last three and three of its last five opponents. For a guy that shoots over 60% for the season, that's pretty bad.

Wildcat guard Barry Brown converted on a layup through contact from Horned Frog guard Shawn Olden, but he missed the free throw, leaving a window of opportunity for TCU. Lard can rebound well and has shown the ability to be a high level player in this system. It would surprise no one if the Cyclones, plagued by injury, win a few games in the Big 12 tournament.

It's been a rough season for Big 12 teams facing each other, it seemed like everybody was beating everybody.

Three to five inches of snow expected on the East End
The peak of the storm still appears to be from mid-afternoon, through the evening, into the early overnight hours. The mixing line could come farther north if the storm's track comes closer to CT , introducing more warm air.

Eden Hazard will now want to leave Chelsea, says pundit
He knows his strengths, and being asked to play in this position does not suit them. "He's fantastic", Hazard added. Hazard also named Harry Kane in his top three but admitted none of them surpass De Bruyne.

Presumably meaning anybody but Kansas - even if one of these days that will change.

Kansas forward Mitch Lightfoot (44) and Kansas guard Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (10) defend against a shot. Udoka Azubuike will need to be the X-Factor for the Jayhawks. Yankuba Sima went to work in the post, scoring 11 points in the half of his life. Oklahoma has regressed tremendously without the hot shooting from Young.

The Big 12 has landed seven NCAA Tournament bids three of the last four seasons, and had six teams in the field previous year. Kansas is seeking a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament while Texas Tech is seeking a title. "I'm proud of them. I feel like we have a lot more basketball to play". The Red Raiders look like a more confident team with Evans in the lineup. I wouldn't be surprised if Texas Tech gets bounced early from the NCAA Tournament.

Kansas State returns to Manhattan to await its NCAA Tournament fate.

The Jayhawks, without their own top inside threat, used motion and screening to get high-percentage shots and open jumpers against Oklahoma State. Jeffrey Carroll had points to lead Oklahoma State.

Talley led Iowa State with nine rebounds and Wiggington grabbed eight. The only years Kansas did not appear in the Big 12 semis were 2000, 2009 and 2017. While everyone knows Kansas is a blueblood and sure to make a deep run, can you really count out the other teams? They will play the victor of the Texas Tech and West Virginia game and will tip at 6 p.m. and can be viewed on ESPN2.

But the KU offense hit a cold patch, managing just two field goals over the next 10 minutes of game action. Big 12 championship for the ninth time in the 15-year Bill Self era.
