GAME OF THE WEEKEND
There are two intriguing games in the Big 12 on Saturday that feature teams that are likely locks for the NCAA Tournament against teams that have some work to do. The first happens in Lubbock, where Texas (17-11, 7-8) takes on No. 22 Texas Tech (18-10, 9-6) in a game that could help to solidify the Longhorns’ at-large resume. Shaka Smart’s crew has rallied to three wins in a row after a four-game skid. The second happens in Morgantown, where Oklahoma (17-11, 7-8) plays No. 20 West Virginia (19-9, 7-8). The Sooners are coming off a win over the Red Raiders while the Mountaineers have lost two straight.
