The 2015 Big 12 Men's Basketball Tournament gets underway tonight in Kansas City when #8 Kansas State takes on #9 TCU at 7 pm ET on ESPNU followed by #7 Texas playing #10 Texas Tech at approximately 9:30 pm ET.
Of course, we'll have to wait until the first session on Thursday afternoon when #5 WVU faces #4 Baylor at 12:30 pm ET on ESPN2. Unlike the first two seasons WVU spent in the Big 12, WVU looks to make some noise in the tournament this year. But in order to do that, WVU must take care of the Baylor team that gave the Mountaineers the most trouble they've endured this year. The first meeting was the first game of a rough stretch for WVU when they dropped 3 of 4 by an average of 19 points. The second meeting was marked by the absence of Juwan Staten and the early injury to Gary Browne. But, a funny thing happened to the Mountaineers since that last matchup...they grew up.
All times listed below are Central.
