    who do we want to play in the 1st round of the big12 tournament?

    I know we want the 2nd or 3rd seed to avoid Ku til the finals.. but really, regardless of seed.. what is our best matchup in round 1? Texas, k state, Oklahoma, Oklahoma state, west Virginia???

    All possibilities are difficult.. the thought of meeting oklahoma state 5 days after we see them in Hilton isnt good. Especially since the cowboys are fighting to get in to the dance.

    Texas has a size advantage over us

    We know w Virginia can skunk us (morgantown Feb 10)

    Oklahoma has Spangler and hield

    We prob match up against k state the best..

    Your thoughts?

    Doesn't matter. We have wins over all of them.
    But we won't be in the first round. Won't even play on that day.

    I don't care who we play, let's make a statement.

    TCU, duh.

    And for clarity, we will not be playing in the first round. We will have a bye.

    How could anyone say anything else? Even if they are coming off of a huge upset to get to the next round, there is no question ISU wants to face TCU.

    Re: who do we want to play in the 1st round of the big12 tournament?

    I would rather play WVU. I think that we could handle them on a neutral court.

    1. WVU
    2. KSU
    3. OU/Texas

    Feel good about any of those matchups though.

    This except I'd switch OU and BU. I feel pretty good about Baylor after how things went early in the season and for some reason OU scares me. I may be singing a different tune after the game tomorrow but this is how I see it right now.

    Re: who do we want to play in the 1st round of the big12 tournament?

    I don't want to play anybody in the first round, because that means we are the 2 seed.

    KSU through BU is pretty muddy for me. BU is the most talented but we match up well with them. Maybe Ill change it to tiers.....

    That is my one "basketball gods" wish....TCU with an upset and we then get to face them. Sure, winning the tourney going through KU would be sweet..but so is winning the tourney. Same for the big dance, would love to get one of the "upset" type of teams from the first round that isn't Cinderella caliber.
