Hoopin’ Around the Big 12: Conference Could be Even Deeper This Season

Published

on

With the Big East-Big 12 battle picking up, let’s take a look at another non-conference week in the Big 12. Here are the notable games from the past week.

Notable Big 12 Results – Week Four

Wednesday, Dec. 1

Oklahoma 74, No. 14 Florida 67
Providence 72, Texas Tech 68

Friday, Dec. 3

No. 8 Kansas 95, St. John’s 75

Saturday, Dec. 4

No. 19 Iowa State 64, Creighton 58

Sunday, Dec. 5

Xavier 77, Oklahoma State 71
Kansas State 65, Wichita State 59

Last week, it was discovered that Iowa State is heading towards returning to their former selves. First-year head coach TJ Otzelberger has led the Cyclones to an 8-0 record. Now, it appears that the conference will be even deeper than last season, with Oklahoma and Kansas State having great weeks.

Oklahoma defeated No. 14 Florida, on Wednesday, while Kansas State defeated Wichita State, on Sunday. The Wildcats were without Nijel Pack, their leading scorer, and defeated a tournament team from 2021.

Bruce Weber’s Wildcats are 5-2 to start the season. The ninth-place team in the Big 12 from a year ago, may improve on their mark from last season.

With Oklahoma, head coach Porter Moser has seemingly gotten his new team together, playing great basketball at the right time. Just weeks after struggling to East Carolina and Utah State, the Sooners defeated UCF and Florida this week.

The Big 12 has a good shot at being really deep this year, once again.
