Texas A&M beat Kansas State 7-2 in the Big 12 tournament today, in the process eliminating top-seeded Texas from conference title contention. The team with the best record in pool play will advance to the title game, with head-to-head performance being the tie-breaker. A&M is now 2-1 in pool play, and it won the head-to-head game against Texas on Thursday, so even if the Longhorns beat Nebraska today, they would lose the tie-breaker to the Aggies. Nebraska, however, is still alive. If the Cornhuskers win, they will also be 2-1, but they would get the tie-breaker over Texas A&M by virtue of their win over the Aggies on Wednesday.
The other bracket is much simpler: the winner of tonight’s game between Baylor (2-0 in pool play) and Oklahoma (2-0) will advance to the title game. In between, the Missouri-Oklahoma State game has no Big 12 championship implications but plenty of NCAA tournament implications. The Tigers probably need to win in order to host a regional, because an 0-3 showing in the conference tournament would negate the momentum of Missouri’s strong second half of the season.
