Big 12 Basketball Tournament Schedule Continues With Oklahoma-Texas

The Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners will meet once again as the Big 12 tournament schedule rolls on. The Longhorns are clearly the favorites in this game and I would say, without jinxing them, that they will win this game.

But Oklahoma, the 10th seed in the tourney, played like a different team against Baylor in the opening round shooting 57 percent from the field and 50 percent from three-point land. If they can play like that, and get another 24 points out of Cade Davis, this may be a closer game than I imagine.

Oklahoma had lost eight consecutive games before winning their regular season finale against Oklahoma State and then winning again in the first round of the Big 12 tournament. There's something to be said for teams that are hot.

All that said, it's hard to envision a scenario where Texas doesn't win. They're huge favorites -- then again, so was Kansas -- so I'll stick with them in my prediction.
