Big 12 Bubble Watch. Chip Brown's got a nice summary of Big 12 teams on the bubble - Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech. The Cowboys picked a huge win in Columbia last night for their fourth straight victory. Oklahoma State's consecutive wins over Baylor, A&M, Kansas and now Missouri has them back from the dead and sitting at 6-7 in conference play. They'll need to win at least two of their next three (Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas) to remain in the hunt.
Tonight's Big 12 schedule features Kansas at Iowa State (6 p.m., ESPN), Oklahoma at Nebraska (7 p.m.), Texas Tech at Texas A&M (7 p.m., ESPN Plus), and Baylor at Colorado (7:30 p.m., Fox Sports Net Rocky Mountain).
One and done. Tennessee's rise to the top of college basketball's rankings was fun, but staying on top's not easy, as the Vols learned last night in a 72-69 loss to Vanderbilt in Nashville. Tennessee still leads the SEC at 11-2, but they'll need to finish strong if they want a top seed in the NCAAs. The Vols close with Kentucky, at Florida, and South Carolina before the SEC Tournament in Atlanta.
Baseball to 4-0. The Longhorns won their fourth straight to start the season with a 10-3 win over UT-Pan American on Tuesday. Freshman Brandon Workman gave Texas 6 excellent innings, allowing just six hits while fanning 11. Texas put away UTPA in a five-run fifth inning in which they drew five walks and had two run-scoring singles.
