Four teams appear to be locks for the bracket (Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, West Virginia) and another (Oklahoma State) would likely be included if the postseason began today. Two more teams (K-State, TCU) are on the bubble. One (Texas Tech) is trying to play its way into the conversation and two (Oklahoma, Texas) are out of the at-large mix.

For K-State guard Barry Brown, hard work is always the answer

Barry Brown isn’t sure how many times he was in K-State’s practice facility over the past two weeks, but his work appears to be paying off. He scored a game-high 21 points on 9-of-14 shooting earlier this week against Iowa State, a performance that nearly matched his combined output (27 points on 8-of-31 shooting) in his previous four games. Perhaps it was the jolt he needed to get his season back on track.
