    Big 12 Tournament Dates

    2008 was the last year the Big 12 started the tournament on a Thursday and it ended on a Sunday - since then it has started on a Wednesday and ends on a Saturday - why the change to end on a Saturday rather than on Sunday?

    TV or to allow the teams in the championship game more time to rest for NCAA tournament games?

    I had heard they thought that Saturday night received better exposure than Sunday afternoon, especially with a logjam of championships that day already.

    Re: Big 12 Tournament Dates

    if the Championship was on Sat in 2000, ISU might have been a no 1 seed. By the time ISU got done demolishing Oklahoma the decisions had been made.


    read this post quickly - it might not last long
