No. 1 Kansas vs. No. 3 West Virginia (ESPN) 5 p.m.

Preview & Prediction: Kansas has had an easy time dismantling opponents to get to the championship game. The Jayhawks are likely the top #1 seed in the NCAA tournament, but need to get this victory to lock that in. West Virginia has battled to get here, and got the better of our Red Raiders last night. The Mountaineers have a steep uphill path to get crowned as the Big 12 tourney champs, but if Miles and Cater stay hot from the three-point line then they have a chance. WVU wants to win this and might leap over Tech to get a #3/4 seed if they can beat KU. I don’t think that will happen, I’m picking the typical Big 12 tournament juggernaut Jayhawks to get this victory.
