Predictions for the Big 12 Tournament

The Big 12 is the deepest league in College Basketball and this year 9 teams have a legitimate shot to make the NCAA Tournament. As usual, Kansas won the Big 12 as they went 13-5 in Big 12 play, which won the league by two games. West Virginia and Texas Tech are ranked in the Top-25 and are more than capable of winning the Conference Tournament. TCU, Oklahoma, and Texas are all locks in the tournament but are more than capable of winning a stacked Big 12 Tournament. Kansas State, Baylor, and Oklahoma State are all three on the bubble but all three could get wins early on and move to the right side of the bubble.
