Big 12 takes it on the chin as March Madness gets underway

OMAHA, Neb. -- The Big 12 spent all season puffing out its chest. The league pointed to its RPI, that mercurial number that seems to take on meaning only in March, and the number of teams it had in the Top 25 as evidence of its superiority. Then, Black Thursday came along. Its conference tournament champ, Iowa State, was first to go down on the first full day of the NCAA Tournament...

Oregon Ducks NCAA Tournament Preview

It has been a year of vindication for Dana Altman’s squad. Injuries slowed the team early in the season, and their depth was tested with the ejection from the team of stars Dominic Artis and Damyean Dotson for sexual assault allegations, and the transfer of bench star Ben Carter to UNLV.  The team fielded six walk-on players and seven freshman with the inclusion of Israeli transfer...

Big 12 Power Rankings: March 2-7

Does anyone want to win the Big 12? We're still taking orders. Kansas handed Iowa State and Oklahoma the keys to at least a share of the title last Monday, and Iowa State couldn't wait to hand them right back.  It's all about the Sooners and Jayhawks down the stretch, but there are still seed lines to be improved, big wins to be captured and final home games to be played.

Iowa St.-Oklahoma St. Preview

Iowa State still has a shot to at becoming only the second team to win the Big 12 since 2005, but its recent road play doesn't inspire much confidence.
