With Iowa State’s loss to
Press West Virginia tonight, Oklahoma State’s potential opponent in the first round of the Big 12 conference tournament was narrowed to two teams.
#Big12MBB scenarios are simple now. If Texas beats Baylor in Austin OSU plays Baylor. If Baylor wins #okstate takes on Iowa State.— Cowboy Basketball (@OSUMBB) March 4, 2017
As of Friday night, No. 11 Baylor is a 6-point favorite over the Longhorns in Austin.
In this week’s Roundtable, Brodie and Joel wanted to face Baylor in the Big 12 Tourney, while Phillip, Joel and I wanted to face Iowa State (Joel was not very decisive).
Iowa State is clearly the hotter of the two teams, winning 10 of their last 11. Baylor has hit a big of a rough patch, going 4-5 in their last nine games.
It’s hard for a team to beat another team three times in one season, and both Baylor and Iowa State have been victorious over the Cowboys this year.
You can catch the Baylor-Texas Saturday at 3 p.m. on ESPN before the Kansas-OSU game tips off at 5 p.m. on ESPN.
