    who would you rather face in the big 12 tourney?

    now that we have played both ksu and texas twice, who would you rather see in the first round of the big 12 tourney? if we beat baylor and become a 3 seed we would likely face texas. if we lose to baylor we will likely be the 4 seed and face ksu.

    Re: who would you rather face in the big 12 tourney?

    Probably Texas. I like that we have a shutdown defender to go on J'Covan Brown. And Royce is big enough to eat any of their bigs alive. However, we must just know how to beat K-State, but I always hate having to beat a team 3 times in a season.

    It hard to choose though because if we are the 4 seed and win we play KU. But if we are the 3 and win we play Mizzou. Now we ask who do we have the better chance beating out of those 2...

    In the end I choose Texas, I just think we have the keys to shut them down better than K State. But I would not be mad if we got K State.

    Re: who would you rather face in the big 12 tourney?

    By God, Fred needs to use this as motivation for getting the team up for MU and Baylor. "Beat these guys, and you won't have to face KSU again this year". I know that would work for me. The last thing I would want to see is Frank "Leatherface" Martin's team on the court against ISU looking to avenge going 0-2 in the regular season.

    how would that tie breaker work? if we beat mizzou and baylor that puts us at 13-5. if they lose to us and beat tech they are at 13-5. we split with them so there is no head to head tie, and then it would fall to wins over the top two teams in the conference which at that point would only be kansas (which we both split against). what's next. if it is overall record or ranking we would still be 3rd.

    is second place even a possibility?

    We can get second place if we win out and Mizzou loses out. That would include them losing to Tech though so not very likely.

    Second seed is only possible of Missouri loses out

    Hoping the tie breaker would be wins over K-State

    although no one is picking purple kansas, that would be a "better" win IF we beat them again to help our seeding in all likelihood.

    although knocking texas off the bubble would be very satisfying. i hate everything about texas.

    I abosulutely HATE playing against/watching KSU. Really glad we beat those thugs twice, but it's hard to beat a team three times. I like our matchup against Texas anyways, and the game we lost to them was probably our worst game of the year.
