Kansas a unanimous selection to win the conference; newcomer TCU picked to finish last
A season removed from winning just one Big 12 Conference game, the Texas Tech basketball team has been picked to finish just a tick above the cellar by the league’s coaches.
In the Big 12 preseason poll released Thursday, the Red Raiders were selected to finish ninth in the 10-team league, ahead of only newcomer Texas Christian.
Kansas, last season’s national runner-up, was selected as the conference’s top team for the 11th time since its inception in 1996. The Jayhawks have won eight straight shared or outright Big 12 regular season titles.
