Big 12 Tourney Semifinals Prediction
(4) Baylor (26-6) vs. (1) Kansas (27-5)- 6:30 pm(Big 12 Network/ESPNU): Baylor played a game that was probably their most impressive thus far this season. Perry Jones III probably had his finest game in a Baylor uniform(which by the way their uniforms are a sore sight to the eyes to say the least). However they got dominated both times they played Kansas this season. They have a better chance in this game if they are as aggressive as they were against K-State and are able to get the bigs of Kansas into foul trouble. I actually think that Baylor gets their revenge for the past two blowout losses and wins this one. Baylor 77 Kansas 72.
(6) Texas (20-12) vs. (2) Missouri (28-4)-9:00 pm(Big 12 Network/ESPNU): The Longhorns probably did enough(at the expense of Iowa State) to be in the NCAA tournament, but to be sure, they have to at least play Missouri really close most of the way or beat them. Missouri dominated from the outset and never gave Oklahoma State any hope of winning. However will fatigue become a factor tonight against a Texas team that is a little bit deeper than Mizzou? We'll find out tonight, but I think that Mizzou's guards will dominate this game, but J'Covan Brown keeps Texas in it long enough to stay close. Mizzou 82 Texas 75.
