Kansas, K-State favored as Big 12 tourney opens

By DAVE SKRETTA

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Kansas State and Kansas tied for the regular-season Big 12 title, but that doesn't mean they feel very good about themselves entering the league tournament.

The Wildcats lost a road game against Oklahoma State on Saturday, while the Jayhawks were routed by Baylor a few hours later in a game that would have given them the outright title.

Consider it proof that the Big 12 tournament should be unpredictable.

West Virginia and Texas Tech open Wednesday night at Sprint Center, with the winner advancing to play Kansas. The winner of Texas-TCU gets the Wildcats on Thursday.

The other two quarterfinals Thursday are Oklahoma-Iowa State and Oklahoma State-Baylor.

The tournament champion will be crowned Saturday night.
