Big 12 Tournament bracket: Full TV schedule, scores, results for 2023 basketball tournament

The Big 12 might have the best collection of talent both in terms of both top-flight teams and percentage of teams that can make the 2023 NCAA Tournament.

The Sporting News projects a total of seven Big 12 teams to compete in March Madness this season — 70 percent of the league. Those include projected 2-seeds Baylor and Texas and projected 3-seed Kansas State — not to mention potential No. 1 overall seed Kansas, which is looking to earn Bill Self’s third NCAA Tournament championship and second in as many seasons.

Jalen Wilson is the driving force of the Jayhawks, leading the conference with 19.7 points and 8.4 rebounds per game while ranking in the top 10 in field goal percentage (41.6 percent). But Wilson isn’t the only threat for Kansas, with three other players averaging double-digit scoring this year: Gradey Dick, Kevin McCullar, KJ Adams and Dajuan Harris.

But here’s how tough the Big 12 has been in 2022-23: Each of Kansas’ five losses have all come in conference play, with the Jayhawks boasting a 13-5 record (72.2 win percentage) vs. Big 12 opponents. That’s worst among the No. 1 seeds in the ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC.
