Hoops misc.

Why the Big 12 Tournament should go back to a Sunday finish. (NewsOK)

Iowa State goes back-to-back at the Big 12 Tournament. I realized this over the weekend, ISU is what OSU used to be. Solid during the regular season, a terror at home, great in the Big 12 tournament and a danger to reach the Sweet 16 every year. Throw in Hoiberg’s love for transfer and I’d say the comp is apropos.
