All season, the Big 12 has been considered a two-team race.
But now that No. 10 Kansas State has given No. 1 Texas its first loss of the season — a 71-62 decision at a rowdy Bramlage Coliseum — there are three teams in the running for a conference championship.
Wildcats leading scorer Jacob Pullen puts it like this: “Walking into this game you felt like (Kansas) being three, Texas being one, they knew about us, but everybody really assumed this was their conference to win. We just wanted to show people it’s not.”
“We want people to know we can win this conference,” the junior guard continued. “We got the talent and depth and the maturity. We’ve got everything you need to make a deep run in March and win the Big 12 championship.”
