Key Teams Left Out
Baylor and Kansas State
I thought the Big 12 would get at least five teams in the field of 64 but it didn’t work out that way. Baylor was listed as the first team left out and Kansas State was not even listed as a bubble team. If a team can’t play, that means Baylor will get a chance to play as a fill-in team. As for Kansas State, I was a little surprised they aren’t even listed as a bubble team. Kansas State had an RPI in the 70’s but they have six wins against top six teams in the country and played well in the Big 12 tournament. Unfortunately, they didn’t make the cut.
