No. 9 Kansas and No. 15 Oklahoma have played each other before. It will not be the same game whatsoever. Kansas lost to rival Kansas State a couple weeks ago but stormed back with two-straight wins to secure at least a share of its 11th consecutive Big 12 regular season title. Oklahoma lost a heartbreaker against No. 17 Iowa State but looks to rebound well against a Jayhawk team that’s missing a couple of key pieces. Tipoff is at 4 p.m. ET on ESPN.
As crazy as the Big 12 has been this year, it should not shock anyone how Tuesday’s overtime game between ninth-ranked Kansas and No. 20 West Virginia turned out.
In a wild finish that saw Kansas rally from an 18-point deficit, the Jayhawks managed to edge out the Mountaineers 76-69 to clinch their 11th straight Big 12 regular-season championship.
Perry Ellis and the No. 9 Jayhawks look to avenge their loss to the Mountaineers two weeks ago back in Morgantown. Juwan Staten hit the game-winning layup to beat the Jayhawks, 62-61. Can the Mountaineers pull off another upset — this time in Lawrence? Or will the Jayhawks still prove to be dominant at home and show that the Big 12 still runs through Allen Fieldhouse as another huge match-up occurs in the mighty Big 12?
