We're running a little fanshot heavy this morning but you folks keep linking some very good stuff so I'll keep front paging it. Thanks to all for keeping an eye out and it's pretty clear there is a buzz in the air today surrounding this game - Denver Katz has been blogging the tournament, but this post is really terrific: Top-ranked Kansas and ninth-ranked Kansas State, the two best teams in the Big 12, arguably the two teams with the most passionate hoop fans in the Big 12, will meet for the Big 12 tournament title Saturday night at the Sprint Center. There will not be a better atmosphere for a tournament title game in 2010. Kentucky-Tennessee in an SEC semifinal in Nashville could be epic but that’s a semifinal. This is a final with one team locked into the No. 1 seed, and another that still holds out hope to grab the fourth No. 1. ... If the game can live up to the anticipation then it will be quite a sendoff for both teams heading into an NCAA tournament, where they could meet again in Indianapolis at the Final Four.
