At long last, we know what the Big 12 tournament bracket for 2017 is going to look like.
The tournament will take place in Kansas City with Kansas – the league-winner by a crazy margin of four games – taking on the winner of TCU vs. Oklahoma.
The Big 12 tournament will tip off on Wednesday before concluding in the title game on Saturday night. West Virginia has been assigned the No. 2 seed while Baylor is the No. 3 seed.
Kansas has earned a top-two seed in the league tournament a staggering 17 times over the past 21 years. Coach Bill Self has major bragging rights as the leader of the league’s top standing team for 13 consecutive seasons, something no other coach in NCAA Division I men’s basketball has ever done.
The Jayhawks won the Big 12 tournament as well as in 2013. Iowa State claimed the top spot in the two years in between. WVU only joined the conference four seasons ago and Baylor has never won the Big 12 tourney before.
