KANSAS CITY, MO - MARCH 16: Head Coach Bruce Weber of the Kansas State Wildcats reacts during the game against the Kansas Jayhawks during the Final of the Big 12 basketball tournament at Sprint Center on March 16, 2013 in Kansas City, Missouri. The Kansas Jayhawks won 70-54.
I think you see that the major conferences like the SEC, Pac-10 and the Big 12 are all attracting better players. There’s just more players so a lot of schools have benefited.
I think a couple years ago we should have had a regional, and we didn't, so maybe we'll get a break this year ... Usually we're complaining they're going to get three regionals in Texas and now they might not get any. It looked like OU was a lock about three weeks ago, and now they're in third or fourth place, and they have to go to Kansas State, whose been really good at home. I think if K-State wins one game, they win the Big 12. So, I think it could play into it.
The Big 12 Conference is excited to showcase its baseball programs to a live television audience ... Oklahoma City and the Phillips 66 Big 12 Baseball Championship have annually produced some of the country’s best collegiate baseball. We appreciate our partnership with the FOX Sports Media Group and welcome the additional exposure.More quotes »
