With the regular season officially coming to an end and the dawn of conference tournament season upon us, it is time to reflect on what got us here.
The Big 12 may not be the deepest conference in college basketball, but it was definitely among the the most exciting.
It hold teams with vast differences in style of play, great players at a variety of positions and even housed an unheralded rivalry in Kansas and Missouri that provided arguably the two most entertaining games of the season.
As fun as the Big 12 conference season was, it is a very top heavy league, with an abundance of talent on the top few teams. There are standout stars from the lower half on the league as well.
As always, this is not the absolute definitive list and all reader feedback is welcome and encouraged.
Whether you agree or disagree, whether you think someone was left off unjustly, or you think someone was rated too high, say so. That is really the fun part of sports and these types of lists. Everyone is different and sees things with their own point of view.
With that, it's time to select the 2012 All-Big 12 teams.
