Seeding Scenarios for the Big 12  Tournament

A breakdown of how today's action affects seeding for next week.

There seemed to be some interest in the way the ties for seeding would be broken in yesterday's News and Notes, so I decided to take some time to break it down. I'll run through each team, sorted by the current standings on ESPN.

Kansas: locked into the 1 seed.

Oklahoma: wins any tiebreakers they are involved in with Texas. loses ties to KSU where Texas is not involved based on record against Kansas.  wins a tie against ISU based on record against Texas

Clinches #2 seed with win.

Clinches #3 seed with Loss and KSU Loss

Clinches #4 seed with Loss and KSU Win

Texas: Loses all tiebreakers due to record against Oklahoma.

Clinches #2 seed with Win and OU Loss.

Clinches #3 seed with Loss and ISU Loss and KSU Loss
