Big 12 Conference Has Toughest Nine Schedules Left in College Basketball

NCAA Basketball: Big 12 Championship-Iowa State vs West Virginia

Just days after a graphic showed the Big 12 Conference had nine of the Top 10 toughest schedules left in all of college basketball, the league has one-upped itself.

On Tuesday night during the Texas vs. TCU game, this graphic appeared on the screen, showing the Big 12 Conference now has the Top 9 remaining toughest schedules in all of Division 1 Basketball.

The order? Texas, Kansas, TCU, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, West Virginia, Baylor, Kansas State and Oklahoma State. Only Iowa State missed the Top 10.


Here’s the proof.

This league the next six weeks is going to be the most fun to watch in America, and it’s not even close. Just look at the epic double-overtime showdown in Lawrence where Kansas had to come back against Texas Tech (after blowing a lead in regulation). Then last Saturday, Kansas came storming back to beat Kansas State in dramatic fashion, Baylor got by Oklahoma, while TCU upset Iowa State, Texas held off Oklahoma State and Tech rolled WVU.


Especially as we move past the NFL Playoffs in the coming weeks, there will be nothing more entertaining in all of sports than the rest of the Big 12 basketball schedule.

Basically, the Big 12 has become in basketball what the national media insists to us the SEC is in football, except the analytics actually back up this league on the hardwood. The same can’t be said about the top-heavy SEC in football.
