Big 12 Has Big Tournament Upside

During KU’s trouncing of Oklahoma last night, Fran Franschilla made the comment that due to the Big 12’s performance against top 25 opponents (more wins than any other conference) and the wins the “mid-level” teams have already pulled out over upper-tier programs (MU over Texas, K-State over Oklahoma), “The Big 12 could have an unlimited number of teams in the NCAA Tournament.” Like I said, Fran… ;)

In other breaking news, DIME Mag (highly recommended) lists the Jayhawks at #1 in their weekly poll. Texas A&M (10) and Texas (19) round out the Big 12's best teams. But there are any number of middler teams who could show up in the tourney with some solid wins.
