High Five: Big 12 Hoopz

1. Kansas State. Duh. This team is pretty much untouchable at this point. Michael Beasley. Even though a championship game between undefeated Memphis and Kansas State is what all but a few very biased college sports fans have been dreaming about, Kansas State is kicking ass and not showing any signs of letting up with the rock. Beasley.

2. Texas. Yeah, sure, there’s a big drop off between the best and the nextest bestest in this conference, but Texas is a salt team with the big hearts of courage. Don’t forget: Kevin Durant might be the second best college player ever in history. And he was on this very team just one year ago!

3. Texas A&M. Man, do I ever love the job that Mark Turgeon is doing. He has the Aggies on some really long winning streak and is impressing the shit out of a lot of people.

4. Baylor. Haven’t seen them yet. They seem real good, though. Scott Drew, turnaround, doldrums, amazing, etc.

5. Kansas. This is a young, up-and-coming team that seems to get a little better every day. Bill Self not only has the preseason’s top rated backcourt, but he’s also swimming freestyle in an ocean of what I call go-to player leaders.
