    Who would you want Iowa State to play in Big 12 Tourney?

    Which team in the first round of the B12 Tourney would you want Iowa State to play against?

    I suppose there are a couple ways to look at this. The team you want to play, and the team you want to play because you think ISU has the best chance to beat them.

    I didn't put WVU or Texas because I assume ISU would have to collapse big time to be in a 7v10 game.

    I'll vote for oklahoma. We match up well against them and it showed when they played in ames.

    Agree. Plus they no longer have Buddy Hield. The only other choice would be Baylor. I still don't like that match up because, even though we swept them, they have great players and you never know when they'll have an awesome game.

    I'm sure you mean 2nd round as only 7-10 picks play in 1st round. (not trying to be an ***). My pick would likely be Oklahoma... Baylor close behind.

    Re: Who would you want Iowa State to play in Big 12 Tourney?

    I ran the conference predictor this morning and have us at 3rd place facing a 6th place Baylor. It's tough beating a team three times in a row... I was a bit of a homer and had us only losing one more game though.

    Re: Who would you want Iowa State to play in Big 12 Tourney?

    There is still a decent chance ISU could get 2nd, so you could add WV and Texas to this as well. That being said, I see the final standings being something like this...

    1. Kansas (14 - 4) Defeated Kansas State based on head-to-head record.
    2. Kansas State (14 - 4) Lost to Kansas based on head-to-head record.
    3. Oklahoma State (13 - 5)
    4. Iowa State (12 - 6) Defeated Oklahoma based on record against #1 teams.
    5. Oklahoma (12 - 6) Lost to Iowa State based on record against #1 teams.
    6. Baylor (8 - 10)
    7. Texas (7 - 11)
    8. West Virginia (6 - 12)
    9. Texas Tech (3 - 15)
    10. TCU (1 - 17)

    I was going to do a write-in vote for WVa or Texas because it could mean Iowa State has the top seed and plays the 8 seed.

    I don't usually buy into the 3-times idea, unless first two were extremely close games. I almost prefer playing someone my team has already swept — and in this case, I don't think Baylor can beat ISU this year. (I know, "Texas has no chance" .... )

    Also, if it was (3) ISU (6) Baylor, that means Cyclones are probably an at-large lock going into it anyway.

    Re: Who would you want Iowa State to play in Big 12 Tourney?

    I think the tourney may end up being one of the greatest for the conference. Anybody can beat anyone else any given day, so a #3, #4, and #5 seed can end up being the tourney champ!! I like the Clones chances, meaning they play well the rest of the year.


    If you take away first base, they'll just go find a new ballpark to play in.

    I picked Kansas because it will make our title run that much sweeter.

    As long as they play the losing team, I'm good.

    Given who has what left, I think 2nd is a very long shot. It's certainly still possible, but it would mean us running the table, plus Kansas or KSU losing @Baylor.

    That said, I think your projected final standings look about right to me, if we can pull off 4-1 in our last 5.
