RTC Live: Big 12 Second Round – KSU vs OSU and Texas vs BaylorPosted by jstevrtc on March 11th, 2010
The Big 12 Tourament’s second round has one heck of a night session in store, wouldn’t you say? First, #9 Kansas State will have to try to find a way to cool off the Cowboys’ Keiton Page who started his tournament off with no less than a 5-out-of-5 three point barrage, finishing with 24 points and 7-10 shooting against Oklahoma. There’s this other guy named James Anderson who might draw some attention, as well. It’s not like K-State’s just here in Kansas City for the barbecue. A couple of weeks ago, they were talked about as the possible fourth #1-seed in the NCAAs, but they dropped two straight to end the year. They need a good showing here to maximize that regional seed. ESPN 360 has this one and it starts at 7:00 PM ET.
If that wasn’t enough for you, how about a little in-state rivalry to end the evening? Texas held off a tough Iowa State team last night behind the grit of Damion James and an efficient performance from Dexter Pittman. A nap might be required in between games to get rested for this one, since Baylor is going to match Texas’ athleticism with the formidable trio of Ekpe Udoh, LaceDarius Dunn, and Tweety Carter. Get your runnin’ shoes on. This is going to be fun. It’s on ESPN2 at 9:30 PM ET, and we’re there too. Come check it out!
