By: Barrett Kazmerzack of Coopers Pick CALL NOW 1-888-730-COOP

This game will be aired on ESPN at 6 PM and while lines are not out they should
be posted later this morning.

The Big 12 Championship pits Texas and Kansas, who was won this tournament
in 4 of the past 5 seasons. The Jayhawks may have a little revenge on their
mind, as the Longhorns snapped their 69-game home winning streak earlier this
season. Both teams are obviously headed for the NCAA Tournament, but this
game is still important to each since Kansas will probably get a top seed if they
can win while Texas will get a very high seed if they win.

Yesterday in the semis of the Big 12 tournament Kansas did not play good
defense, but still beat Colorado 90-83 and Texas had no problems beating Texas
A&M 70-58.

Texas got good games yesterday from their big guns of Tristan Thompson and
Jordan Hamilton, as they combined for 31 points and 21 rebounds. In the 3
conference tournament games for Texas Thomson has had a double-double in
every game.

The Longhorns shot 49.1% from the floor in the win over Texas A&M, but the
main reason they won by 12 points is that they played great defense holding the
Aggies to only 35.4% and held them to 24 points in the first half.

The F duo of the Morris Twins of Marcus and Markieff did not play well in the
loss to Texas earlier this season combining for 26 points and 12 boards, but in
their win over Colorado yesterday they combined for 40 points and 21 boards.
The Texas’ D will key on these guys again and there will be a lot of pressure on
guards Tyrel Reed (9.8 ppg) and Brady Morningstar (6.7 ppg) to hit their open
shots from the outside so Texas does not drop down in the lane to stop the
Morris twins. In yesterday’s game against Colorado Reed did his part scoring 15
points and hit 3/6 of his 3-pointers while Morningstar was only 3/9 from the field
and he missed all 3 of his 3-pointers.

Kansas has to play better defense than they did yesterday when they allowed
Colorado to shoot 49.2% from the floor. This is especially the case if Kansas
struggles with their shot like they did in the home loss to Texas earlier this
season where they only shot 35.9%.

Texas is 3-0 ATS in their Big 12 tourney games while Kansas is 0-2. Kansas has
not been a good ATS team lately, as they are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games

and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games. Texas has covered the spread in
their last 5 games held at a neutral site.

This season Texas has been a better betting team going 20-8 ATS while Kansas
is only 15-15-1 ATS. Kansas has not covered the spread in their 2 games in the
conference tourney and Texas has covered in their 3 games and is 5-0 ATS in
their last 5 neutral site games.
