The Big 12 Conference released the field of the 2021 Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship to be played March 10-13 Kansas City’s T-Mobile Center.

Baylor clinched their first Big 12 Conference regular season title with the 94-89 overtime victory at West Virginia on Tuesday. 

Kansas took the two-seed after Oklahoma State went into Morgantown down two starters, including the Big 12 leading scorer Cade Cunningham and shocked No. 6 West Virginia 85-80 on Saturday. The West Virginia loss also opened the door for Texas, who grabbed the three-seed after a win at TCU Sunday night and placing West Virginia at the four-seed. Oklahoma State and Texas Tech round out the top six seeds that receive first-round byes and will begin play on Thursday.

First-round games will be contested on Wednesday with No. 8 TCU versus No. 9 Kansas State and No. 7 Oklahoma against No. 10 Iowa State.

The entire Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship will be televised nationally on ESPN or ESPN2 and also available on the ESPN App.
