NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament Second Round-Creighton vs Baylor

Big 12 MBB Headlines (April Edition)

Happy Easter, ya filthy animals

Michael Ciaglo-USA TODAY Sports

If you haven’t checked out our preliminary musings on next year’s team (which has already been wrong in more than one way), you can find them here. Taking a look around the league, one thing is abundantly clear: next year will look very different from this past season.

Conference Newcomers

You may have heard that next season, we’ll have some new conference mates entering the fray. In case you missed how they did this past season, here’s a brief recap.

Houston earned a 1-seed in the NCAA tournament for the first time in 40 years after winning back-to-back AAC championships and putting up 30+ wins for a 2nd straight season.

Cincinnati won the most games (23) it has since Mick Cronin left, but has now missed 3 consecutive NCAA Tournaments (after having made 9 consecutive to end the Cronin-era).

UCF finished the regular season 4-9 (19-15 overall). The Knights have made just one NCAA Tournament (2019) since leaving the Atlantic Sun Conference in 2005.

BYU won just 19 games, tying their lowest season win total since 2005. The Cougars also missed the NCAA Tournament for a 2nd consecutive season.

Important Offseason Dates

May 11, 2023: The Men’s Basketball Transfer Portal Window closes

May 17, 2023: High School Recruiting Class of 2023 finalized

Conclusion

As the offseason unfolds and we start to get a better idea of what the Bears (and the rest of the Big 12) will look like next season, we know there’ll be a lot change and uncertainty, new faces and familiar faces with new teams. I, for one, am grateful that the Bears are under the leadership of Scott Drew, who I trust will do a great job filling in a roster that can compete in the toughest league in the nation. Happy Easter, everyone. Sic Em!
