There's a clear disparity emerging among the current ten-team structure of the Big 12 in basketball - the conference could boast three Final Four contenders in Kansas, Missouri and Baylor (a combined 15-3 in conference play), but only looks to have four or five teams total that are worth a NCAA Tournament bid. SIx Big 12 teams enter this week with a .500 conference record or worse (five are sub-.500).
This week's schedule will likely widen the gap - 2-4 Texas A&M hosts undefeated Kansas, 2-4 Oklahoma State travels to Missouri, and Baylor will host 2-4 Oklahoma.
