Final Big XII Recap (3/04 - 3/12)

03/12/2019

Down to the final week in the Big XII, Texas Tech and Kansas State has been battling it out for first place but finished as co-champions as both teams brought back a win to their representative schools. For the tournament, Kansas State locked up the one seed due to a tiebreaker of 4-2 to 3-3 against each other, Kansas, and Baylor. Kansas and Baylor had solid seasons. Baylor surprised fans as Kansas disappointed their fans. Either way, momentum is on their side heading toward the tournament. Iowa State got an outright 5th place going 9-9 in conference play. The tournament may be a nightmare for them because they can win at home, but can't win in-conference on the road...

Texas, Oklahoma, and TCU are also on the bubble for the tournament, being seeded 6, 7, and 8 (in that team order) respectively. Oklahoma State has a nine seed but got significantly better down the stretch. West Virginia is basically going downhill. Fortunately for the Mountaineers, their season will be about done.

Below, we will reveal to you the tournament seedings.
