We have officially reached the postseason portion of the Big 12 softball schedule, with the conference tournament set to start this Thursday.
The Oklahoma Sooners, who come into the tournament as the one-seed, just claimed their 10th consecutive Big 12 regular-season title as they swept their in-state rival Oklahoma State over the weekend.
The Sooners’ 48-1 record through the regular season puts them on pace to be among the best teams ever assembles, but there is a long road ahead of them to reach that status. First, they must navigate through the Big 12 tournament in Oklahoma City.
On Sunday, the Big 12 released the schedule for the week, starting on Thursday and the Championship game being played on Saturday. Here is how everything will look once the tournament gets underway.
