MARCH MADNESSIt's that time of year, folks. The hills and valleys of the regular season are gone, and from this point on every basketball team in the country is fighting for its life. This begins with conference tournaments. To some, they are just resume padding. To others, they represent that last quality win needed to make it to the Big Dance, or the last glimmer of hope for a run and an automatic bid. Fill out your bracket - it's gonna be brutal. For Baylor, the conference tournament lies somewhere between the first two categories. Few would deny the Bears' right to a bid at this point, and some bracketologists have Baylor as high as a seven seed. The tournament presents a golden opportunity to score victories against Big 12 teams that eluded us in the regular season. Texas and Oklahoma occupy our side of the bracket, and a matchup against the Sooners is the next step if we take care of business against TCU today.
