The Kansas Jayhawks will take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys today as the Big 12 tournament continues on ESPN2.

The Jayhawks have gone 9-1 in their last 10 games with the only loss coming on the road to Kansas State in a disappointing 84-68 beat down by the Wildcats.

Kansas did not even lose their first game of the 2010-11 season until January 22nd against the Texas Longhorns.

So far this season, Kansas has an overall record of 29-2 and hold a conference record of 14-2. They are also ranked second in the AP polls and also in the ESPN/USA polls.

Marcus Morris is undoubtedly the teams' leader as he is averaging a little over 17 points and seven rebounds per game. Morris has also been a vocal leader as he has had three years on this Jayhawks team and has improved his numbers greatly every season.

Oklahoma State will be visiting Kansas as complete underdogs as the Cowboys have only posted a 19-12 record on the season. The Cowboys have also lost against Kansas already this season as the team dropped a 92-68 decision on February 21.

Marshall Moses will be the Cowboys' player to watch as he leads the team in scoring with 14.5 points per game and has a very nice perimeter game, shooting almost .700 from behind the arch.

Oklahoma State has not played well within the Big 12 this season as they have only posted a 6-10 record but have had some key victories against Kansas State and Missouri.

Tip off is slated for 12:30 PM ET.
