Four Big 12 Teams Take The Court Tonight

On the second night of the young season where multiple Big 12 teams are competing, tonight we will see four Big 12 teams try and remain undefeated.

All four games are against teams that the Big 12 should beat, and three of the four at on Big 12 campuses.

See a preview of each after The Jump.


Valparaiso Crusaders at Kansas Jayhawks - Kansas is coming off a dominating performance in the first game of the season and there is no reason to expect anything less tonight.  Expect twins Marcus and Markieff Morris to try and equal their combined 32 point, 17 rebound, 5 assist, 4 block performance Friday evening vs Longwood. If the Morris twins stumble, KU fans shouldn't worry as Tyshawn Taylor, Tyrel Reed and Thomas Robinson all poured in double digits in Friday's W.

Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions at Nebraska Cornhuskers - Nebraska escaped Friday with a 76-68 win over the South Dakota Coyotes in a game where fans saw 44 3-pt attempts launched. New 6'11 Husker Andre Almeida scored 20 pts and recorded 7 rebounds in his Corn debut, and expect his height to tower over a smaller A-PB tonight as well. Arkansas-Pine Bluff didn't look so hot in a 31 point loss at Colorado State, so even though NU scraped by last week, don't expect the upset tonight in Lincoln.

North Carolina Central Eagles at Oklahoma Sooners - One might say North Carolina Central rolled in their first game with a commanding 90-30 victory. One might then be reminded they played against Johnson and Wales, a university known more for its culinary program than its hoops. Oklahoma had its way with Coppin State last Friday, and looks to start the season 2-0 against schools with Eagles mascots. Led by sophomore Andrew Fitzgerald's 22 point, the Sooners saw four guys in double figures, including freshman Cameron Clark, who went 3-4 from behind the 3-point line.

Texas A&M Aggies at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders - In the lone road game of the night in conference play, the Aggies travel to ... face themselves? Not quite, but anytime a flagship school plays a "city" tagalong, one can assume the brand name will come out victorious. This should be no different, as Nathan Walkup tries to match his 22 points in the Aggies first game.
