Big 12 Tournament 2018: Bracket, schedule, scores, teams, and more

Kansas State advances to play Kansas Friday in the semifinals.

The third time was the charm for Kansas. The Jayhawks won both regular-season meetings versus the Wildcats and will meet their in-state rival for the 23rd time in conference postseason tournament play and the 10th time in the Big 12 era. For Oklahoma State, the loss left their NCAA tournament hopes in jeopardy, as they came into the contest firmly on the bubble.

Five players are averaging at least 12.0 points per game for Kansas, they are Devonte' Graham (17.6), Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (15.3), Azubuike (13.7), Lagerald Vick (12.2) and Malik Newman (12.0).

The teams opened the second half trading baskets and Tavarius Shine's jumper made it 52-50 Kansas with 14:59 left in the game. The production manager at the Kansas City Live stage of the Power and Light District expects thousands of fans to pack the area for pep rallies and watch parties as part of the free Miller Lite Basketball Fan Fest.

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Kansas is the favorite in this game, as the Jayhawks are getting odds of -8 points against Kansas State.

That man was sophomore guard Malik Newman, who began playing for the Jayhawks this year after sitting out last season under NCAA rules following his transfer from Mississippi State.

CBS Sports' Jerry Palm does not have Oklahoma State in the field and does not list it as one of the "First Four Out".

TCU and Kansas State split their regular-season series, each team winning on its home court.

The game wasn't without drama.

The Kansas basketball team has advanced to the Big 12 Tournament final. Then senior guard Alex Robinson couldn't connect on the first of two free throws with 1.3 seconds remaining in overtime and the Horned Frogs exited the tournament with a 66-64 loss. But he missed his first free throw, and TCU couldn't pull down the rebound on his intentional miss on the second attempt. Though Virginia plays at one of the nation's slowest pace, it has a highly efficient offense with each of the squad's top three scorers shooting over 38 percent from 3-point range.

Right now, ESPN's Joe Lunardi has Oklahoma State as one of the "First Four Out" in his latest Bracketology.

But she has also raised concerns about the humanitarian crisis in Yemen with Prince Mohammed during his visit to the UK. The BAE System said in a statement that the signing is a positive step ahead in direction of friendly relations.

Kansas took advantage of his absence by ripping off a 19-4 run midway through the first half that gave the Jayhawks control.

It is unranked. It was in the bottom three spots in the Big 12 standings and earned a No. 8 seed in the conference tournament.

It is debatable whether the Sooners will make it into the NCAA Tournament.

TCU heads back to Fort Worth, Texas, to wait out Selection Sunday.

TCU fought back and threatened to win several times behind 20 points and 10 rebounds from Kenrich Williams.

Texas Tech is tough.

Syracuse received an at-large bid into the 2016 NCAA Tournament despite a 71st-ranked RPI.

The Longhorns weren't almost as efficient as their counterparts-they shot 43.1 percent from the field and 38.9 percent from three-but Jacob Young's out-of-nowhere eruption off the bench kept them afloat. Marcus Garrett (eight points, five boards) missed a three-pointer, but after a Wildcats rebound, Garrett plucked a steal and hit a layup that made it 55-51 KU at 9:55. Houston plays its first (quarterfinal) game against the victor of No. 6 seed Central Florida.

Still, the Sooners kept trying to land the blow that would get them back in the game.

Baylor finished the night with 22 turnovers compared to 11 assists. It also ended a streak of three straight conference tournaments in which the Horned Frogs had won at least one game.
