Okay. Great, great win on Friday over Iowa State. We’ve clinched the No. 2 seed in the Big 12 Tourney and now we wait to see who we’ll play. Here’s what needs to happen for each possibility.

I’m ordering them from most likely to least likely.

UPDATE: K-State beat Texas Tech 61-48. This eliminated any chance of WVU playing the Wildcats on Thursday.

Oklahoma beat TCU 73-68. This seals the possibility of Texas Tech or Texas.

*Ferris Bueller voice* If you were in the Big 12 Tournament, would you want to play a Texas Tech team playing for their postseason lives? Neither would I.

I don’t think WVU would have any serious problems with the Longhorns. My main fact to support that theory is that Texas can’t really do anything outside of Austin.
