College Basketbal Big-12 Conference Contenders Updated: January 2019
Big 12 Conference Predictions:
Not as good from top to bottom as it was a year ago, the Big 12 still has two of the top four seeds in the nation in Kansas (22-3, 10-2) and Baylor (22-3, 9-3). West Virginia (20-5, 8-4) is another Top 10 team that could make some noise deep into the tourney, but after the Mountaineers the rest of the conference is iffy at best.
Iowa State, TCU, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, and Texas Tech could all end the regular season with 20-plus wins but each will need a key victory down the stretch. Texas and Oklahoma are the only two teams in the conference that are definitely out. The Jayhawks and Bears are both extremely talented and could bring home a national title for the Big 12.
