Big 12 Tournament Bracket Set

Well, the seedings are official for the 2018 Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship in Kansas City, which will be played March 7-10.

Kansas won another regular season title and will be the No. 1 seed. That makes 14 Big 12 titles in a row and 18 in the last 22 seasons. Impressive stuff.

After a win over TCU, Texas Tech passed West Virginia for the No. 2 seed on Saturday. With an overtime loss to Texas, it pushed West Virginia down to the No. 3 seed.

Here is the rest of the field, per Big12sports.com:

West Virginia gets a Baylor team in the first game that they had a season sweep against. The game will be played in the prime-time slot at 8 p.m. EST on Thursday night. Much like Texas in the regular season finale, Baylor could be playing for their NCAA Tournament lives. A win would create a semifinal game against Texas Tech, Texas or Iowa.

West Virginia is yet to win a Big 12 tournament, but it would be a great springboard into the Big Dance.
