Welcome to "Big 12 Hoops"

New, 7 comments

Welcome to Big12Hoops. We are the longest running blog dedicated solely to Big 12 basketball.

For our old readers: Thank you for your continued support and know that the only changed to Big12Hoops will be for the better. After a four month hiatus, Big12Hoops is back up and running thanks to SB Nation.

To our new readers: Welcome! Our mission is to provide the most comprehensive coverage of Big 12 basketball.

As lead author, I [Mark Allan Peterson] got my start as a sports editor for the Waco Tribune-Herald and later in a similar position with The Dallas Morning-News. Eventually I joined the Fort Worth Star-Telegram as a staff sports writer, and have covered Big 12 basketball as a freelance writer for many other newspapers including the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Columbia State, Lincoln Journal Star, Denver Post and the Daily Oklahoma.

From this experience, and as a fan, I quickly discovered that newspapers can't/or won't provide the in-depth coverage [I'm sure] many of you remember from decades past.

My mission is to provide the high quality and in-depth coverage corporate publications no longer provide.

Thus the birth of Big12Hoops.

We are continually open to feedback on how to improve, and value each and every opinion.
