TV/streaming information

Much like the ACC, ESPN channel designations for the Big 12 Tournament will depend on the matches available. The only match in the first round will appear on ESPN2 or U, while the quarters and semi-finals will be on ESPN or ESPN2. The Championship Game; however, is locked to ESPN at 6 Eastern the day before the draft.

Speakers

Oklahoma State is ineligible for the playoffs, so the 2021 Big 12 tournament will feature only nine teams.

Data originally published by Bob Vetrone Jr. on Twitter in 2020 with my own additions for 2021 and 2022.

In the last 10 Big 12 tournaments, the No. 1 seed has won four titles, with the No. 2 seed claiming only two. In 2021, Texas became the first 3 seed to win since Missouri in 2009.

  • 1 seed (4): 2011, 2013, 2015, 2018
  • 2 seeds (2): 2012, 2015
  • 4 seeds (2): 2014, 2017
  • 3 seeds (1): 2021
  • 5 seeds (1); 2019
  • 7 bids (5): 2014 (record 6-7), 2015 (record 5-7), 2016 (record 9-7), 2018 (12-7 record), 2021 (11-6 record, Baylor national champion)
  • 6 offers (3): 2012 (10-6 record), 2017 (9-6 record), 2019 (8-6 record)
  • 5 bids (2): 2011 (record 5-5, 12 members), 2013 (3-5 record)

The Big 12 has sent no fewer than five teams to the NCAA Tournament over the past 10 years. While it seemed for a time that the conference would put seven or eight teams in the 2022 field, six are now much more likely to rule out a surprise winner here.

Note that Baylor’s 6-0 run to the title has really boosted the conference’s 2021 success rate. No other team has made it out of the second round.

Texas: 2021 (4 seeds)
State of Iowa: 2019 (5 seeds)
Kansas: 2018 (1 seed)
West Virginia: 2010 (3 seeds, Big East)
State of Oklahoma: 2005 (3 seeds)
Oklahoma: 2003 (3 seeds)
Texas Technology: 1996 (1 seed, SWC)
State of Kansas: 1980 (2 seeds, Big 8)

In 2021, Texas won its first Big 12 title and its first conference tournament title since 1995 (Southwest). That leaves West Virginia, Texas Tech, Kansas State, TCU and Baylor chasing their first Big 12 crowns. Worse still for the Horned Frogs and Bears is the fact that no team has conference tournament title to his name.
