BIG 12 OUTLOOK: 02.26.11

BIG 12 OUTLOOK combines several predictive systems in an attempt to project the final men's basketball standings and the seed order for the Big 12 Tournament. It is updated biweekly. This is the seventh midweek edition for 2011.

Kansas State faces a must-win at Oklahoma State. The Wildcats currently reside among our "Next Four Out," in large part because of a No. 310 nonconference schedule. Despite wins over Missouri, at Texas and at Texas A&M, K-State is just 8-6 in the softer Big 12 North. A No. 72 RPI suggests the Wildcats will need at least a 10-6 Big 12 record along with further good work in next week's conference tournament.

Joe Lunardi -- Bubble Game of the Night Is anyone in the national media ever going to catch on that the Big 12 North has closed the gap with the Big 12 South? The divisions have evenly split 28 games thus far. With Baylor's implosion, they are basically as easy a win as Iowa State in the North, giving both divisions two easy wins. KU is as good as OU at the top. Missouri is better than Texas and Oklahoma State, or have we all forgotten that the Tigers won on both of those schools' home courts? For that matter, does anyone even remember that K-State won in Austin and College Station? Lunardi mentions it, but doesn't seem to put any stock in it. I'm not going to make some outlandish claim that the South is the North's bitch this year, but to call it anything but a draw at this point ignores the results.

Kansas St. (1-1 this week)—Coach Frank Martin was defending the Big 12 this week on the weekly conference call that there are several quality teams in the conference and wonders why they are not talked about as much as the Big East and the ACC. That may be true, but Kansas St. isn’t helping themselves as well as anyone else with having a bogus non-conference schedule and going 1-4 against Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri may be something that sticks out when the committee is trying to pick that last team from the Big 12.

Rush The Court I don't mean to pick on RTC too much because they do a good job, but if your metric is record against the top three teams in the conference, let's be fair and look at the records of all the Big 12 "bubble teams" against those three squads. Oklahoma State: Currently 0-3 with a road game against OU remaining. Texas A&M: Currently 0-3 with a home game against Missouri remaining. Texas: Currently 1-3 with a road game against KU remaining. Yeah, it's clear that our record against the top teams in our conference is dragging us down compared to other Big 12 bubble teams.
