The first day of the Big 12 tournament is in the books and the quarterfinal matchups are all set. Wednesday's opening round games saw Texas A&M defeat the Oklahoma Sooners 62-53, and now they get the privilege to take on top-seed Kansas.
In the night cap of the opening round it was Oklahoma State who had a big second half to defeat Texas Tech 76-60, and they will be playing No. 2 seed Missouri.
Kansas and Missouri have a lot on the line in the Big 12 tournament, because whichever school can win the tournament they have a very good chance of being awarded with a No. 1 seed for the NCAA tournament.
Here is the schedule for Thursday's games:
No. 1 Kansas Jayhawks vs. No. 9 Texas A&M Aggies 2 p.m. ET (ESPN2)
