Let's be honest for a moment. The Big 12's 17-0 cumulative record is inflated. Really who has any conference member played so far?
Well Big 12 fans, welcome to the beginning of the fun! Tonight's docket partly will remind you, if you had forgotten, why you love college basketball, and what good hoops will look like.
Two of the games will be on the ESPN College Basketball Marathon, so the conference will get national attention. One of those games brings the Virginia Tech Hokies to Manhattan, Kansas to face the Kansas State Wildcats at 3 p.m. CDT on ESPN. And if you're a Big 12 fan, you will already be tuned into ESPN to catch the Baylor Bears host the La Salle Explorers at 1 p.m. CDT.
The Big 12's Colorado Buffaloes will also have their hands full as they travel to Athens, Georgia to face the University of Georgia Bulldogs at 6 p.m. on ESPN3.com
The final conference game will see Texas Tech Red Raiders travel to North Texas to face the Mean Green.
Should be a great day for all college basketball fans, but definitely for fans of the Big 12.
