Bill Self is 3-5 against Oklahoma State in Stillwater since arriving at Kansas following the Cowboys’ 67-62 win on Saturday.  The Pokes have stormed the court on Kansas twice in the last year now.  Oklahoma State has played very well lately, is tied in this week’s AP poll for No. 21 with West Virginia and if they can keep this play up, they should be able to creep in to the NCAA Tournament next month.  However, with Travis Ford’s NCAA Tournament experience and the lack of depth compared to other teams in the country the Cowboys are unlikely to make a run.

The Big 12 is proving to be the country’s most competitive conference day-in and day-out with the constant upsets.  In addition to OSU’s win over No. 8 Kansas, we have Texas Tech defeat Iowa State (prior to being demolished in Ames in the second meeting), Baylor blew out Texas, Kansas State has been up-and-down this year and West Virginia has been flying under the radar for a good part of this year.

There is still almost a month left before the Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City.  In fact if the tournament started today the pairings would be:
No. 4 Baylor vs. No. 5 West Virginia
No. 8 Texas/No. 9 Texas Tech vs. No. 1 Kansas
No. 7 Kansas State/No. 10 TCU vs. No. 2 Iowa State
No. 3 Oklahoma vs. No. 6 Oklahoma State

Week 13 Results:

No. 8 Kansas 89, No. 11 Iowa State 76

No. 21 Oklahoma 71, No. 15 West Virginia 52

Oklahoma State 65, No. 25 Texas 63 – OT
No. 19 Baylor 77, TCU 57
