RTC Live: Big 12 First Round – Texas vs Iowa StatePosted by jstevrtc on March 10th, 2010
Time for the big boys. You can’t be a college basketball fan and not love the early days of Championship Week when small-conference legends are made, and NCAA Tournament dreams are realized. But you we’re getting close to Selection Sunday when the major conferences start up. Perhaps the biggest and baddest conference of the season gets going today, and we’ll be on hand for the nightcap. In terms of its Tournament status, Texas isn’t really on shaky ground, but after dropping eight of your last 14, you don’t want to be giving the selection committee any more reason to consider leaving you on the sidelines. A lot of hoop-o-philes think that Texas is one of those teams that just lost focus during the long regular season and that they’ll get the engine revved back up to full speed in the post-season. Well, here we are. We’ll see what they come up with in their Big 12 first round tilt against Craig Brackins and an Iowa State team who’s got a little momentum after that victory over Kansas State on Saturday. It starts at 9:30 PM ET and you’ll see us there a few minutes early. Join us!
