How a crazy Monday affected Big 12 MBB (Krista Pirtle's Blog)

If Monday’s Big 12 men’s basketball games didn’t get you excited for the Big 12 men’s championship, I don’t know what will.

Baylor led Texas at the half before falling in overtime off a last second shot by Isaiah Taylor.

Just over 960 miles north in Ames, the Cyclones were down 21 to Oklahoma.

After Oklahoma guard Isaiah Cousins received a technical foul for hollering at the Cyclone bench, Iowa State scored 22 straight points in just over five minutes.  

With one week remaining in league play, the Big 12 regular season title is up for grabs. Kansas, the champion for the past 10 years, has its 11th straight title within reach.
