Could there be room for a third or fourth team in the two-team race for the Big 12 title?
The return of Marcus Smart to Oklahoma State and the arrival of Andrew Wiggins at Kansas appeared to set up those two programs atop the Big 12 this season.
One thing is clear in the Big 12 so far: It won’t be that easy. Fred Hoiberg is again working his magic at Iowa State where transfers and an up-tempo offense have the Cyclones undefeated. After a win over Kentucky, Baylor is back on the upswing after an NIT appearance last season.
Scottie Wilbekin netted a team-high 18 points, including nine in a 21-0 Florida flurry midway through the first half that propelled the 19th-ranked Gators to a 67-61 triumph over No. 13 Kansas on Tuesday at O'Connell Center.
Both the 13th-ranked Kansas Jayhawks and the 19th-ranked Florida Gators slid in the latest AP poll, and the squads will attempt to get back on track on Tuesday night when they square off at the O'Connell Center.
