Kansas basketball: Big 12 Tournament opener, where to watch

Oklahoma State Beats Oklahoma In Big 12 Opening Round Oklahoma State Beats Oklahoma In Big 12 Opening Round
| 09 March, 2018, 10:20

The productive offense of Kansas (15th in the nation with an offensive efficiency of 116.5) will battle against the mid-tier defense of Oklahoma State (173rd in the NCAA with a defensive efficiency of 103.4). Wigginton seems to just be scratching the surface of his overall abilities but he has shown promise with his natural scoring abilities and athleticism.

West Virginia's opponent for Thursday's night's quarterfinal matchup, the Baylor Bears, weren't seen in the Sprint Center on Wednesday, but BU was utmost on the minds of the Mountaineers throughout the day.

It's only right that an Iowa State player fills out this list.

Although the Cowboys didn't struggle when Smith fouled out, when he had to sit earlier in the game with four fouls, OU went on a 12-2 run. For a guy that shoots over 60% for the season, that's pretty bad. For such a good-shooting team, 50 percent from the free throw line has haunted the Frogs on multiple occasions. No. 5 TCU (ESPN/ESPN2) 12:30 p.m. "Everyone has something to give to this team and everyone respects each other".

Silvio De Sousa will have to be a spark for Kansas in this one.

One of OSU's biggest issues this year is avoiding foul trouble. It will take a lot, but Bill Self could pull it off.

The comparisons to Curry, with whom Young shares a physical build and unwavering faith in the work he puts in to pull up from inside the half-court line, came hot and heavy as he led OU to a 14-2 start, including a pair of 43-point performances in wins against OR and a then-16th-ranked TCU squad.


Young is the first Sooner to win the award now named after an Oklahoma legend.

"We just didn't do the job we had to do against a good club in keeping them to one shot", Sooners coach Lon Kruger said. Young is five assists shy of tying of the Big 12's freshman assists record, set by T.J. Ford of Texas (273 in 2001-02). Hard to imagine the selection committee leaving out one of the most exciting and impactful players in the past 20 years at the college level, but a 18-13 record and losing 8 of their last 10 will be tough to overlook. Those results should have them comfortably in as a #2 or #3 seed. Zhaire Smith has been reliable for the Red Raiders but is far from being a 2nd option on a contending team in my eyes. If the bubble weren't weaker, you could even argue that both of these teams could have been out of the NCAA tournament picture awhile ago. By my estimate, Kansas' best wins are at projected #4 seed Texas Tech, and then a sweep of West Virginia (I've got them as a #5), and beating Kentucky (also a #5). Here are a few things to know when the Jayhawks battle Oklahoma State for a third time. But the 7-1, 250-pounder plays alongside guards junior Allonzo Trier and sophomore Rawle Alkins, both of whom are leaving school early to turn pro.

The Arizona State situation is probably been more shocking.

The beauty of March Madness is that literally nobody could every predict everything that happens.

Asked whether the Jayhawks will be able to cope without their big man, Big 12 player of the year Devonte Graham replied: "We're going to have to be". Oklahoma entered Wednesday's action 36th in the RPI, while Arizona State was 58th.

NCAA Tournament staples like Syracuse, Louisville, UCLA and Notre Dame scuffled through conference play and find themselves unsure of their tournament fate. On top of that, the Bears made a combined 38-of-112 field goal attempts in the two meetings, which is a mere 33.9 percent.
