The Big 12 Tournament is set to hit the Sprint Center in Kansas City this week. All of the action is scheduled to begin on March 13 and run through March 16.
The Kansas Jayhawks enter as the favorites to cut down the nets. This being said, Kansas State and Oklahoma State have the talent to sneak up and upset KU. Do not discount Oklahoma, Iowa State or Baylor, either. These are three teams considered to be on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament, and a strong or poor showing could be the difference between the NCAAs and the NIT.
All 10 teams from the conference will be represented in Kansas City. The first round will feature teams seeded 7-10, while the top six seeds get a bye. The full bracket can be found here.
