The Sprint Center in Kansas City Missouri will feature the Texas A&M Aggies against the Kansas Jayhawks in the final battle for the Big 12 crown.
While Bill Self plays down the conference tournaments when compared to the regular season, the Jayhawks will be hungry to win a title. This will assure the Jayhawks of a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and will make them a favorite when folks fill out their March Madness brackets.
The Morris twins are a talented duo that will not allow this team to lose. Markieff is a force inside that led the conference in rebounds and Marcus is the Big 12 player of the year. Marcus and Markieff Morris both scored 13 points in the last game against Texas A&M.
Kansas defeated the Aggies in early March and will look for a repeat performance. The Aggies will attempt to slow down the game and use defense to win, but in the end Kansas will prevail as the Big 12 Champions.
