So which team will it be? Here are my exclusive predictions.
First Round - Wednesday, March 9th
8 Kansas State vs. 9 Oklahoma State - ESPNU, 7:00
Pick: Kansas State
7 Texas Tech vs. 10 TCU - ESPNU, 9:00
Pick: Texas Tech
Quarterfinals - Thursday, March 10th
4 Texas vs. 5 Baylor - ESPN2, 12:30
Shaka Smart has found some success with the havoc defense this year but I think this contest with Baylor will turn out more like their matchup in Austin than the earlier one in Waco.
1 Kansas vs. 8 Kansas State - ESPN2, 2:30
The crowd will be fun for this, but the game itself won't be.
2 West Virginia vs. 7 Texas Tech - ESPNU, 7:00
The Red Raiders have made some strides this season but I don't think they've made enough to upset the Mountaineers.
Pick: West Virginia
3 Oklahoma vs. 6 Iowa State - ESPNU, 9:00
These two have played some classic games this season as they split both. I do think that on a neutral floor, the Sooners will come out ahead.
Semifinals - Friday, March 11th
1 Kansas vs. 5 Baylor - ESPN2, 7:00
If this game were being played in Waco, perhaps I'd consider the Bears. In Kansas City, give me the Jayhawks.
2 West Virginia vs. 3 Oklahoma - ESPN2, 9:00
Bob Huggins's team's rugged defense will make his an interesting gone to watch but in the end, Buddy Hield will be too much for them once again.
Championship - Saturday, March 12th
1 Kansas vs. 3 Oklahoma - ESPN, 6:00
The Sooners have lost twice to Kansas in a pair of terrific ballgames but this time, they'll finally get that win over Rock Chalk.
