Bruce Weber and the Wildcats can make a statement Tuesday.

Bruce Weber and the Wildcats can make a statement Tuesday.

Is there a worse bottom of a conference than the Big 12? Perhaps the SEC, but it’s possible the bottom two teams each finish 1-17. Think about that. The NCAA selection committee probably will come seeding time.

KANSAS (16-1, 4-0. Last week: Defeated Baylor, Texas. This week: Tuesday at Kansas, Saturday vs. Oklahoma): Jayhawks haven’t exactly been dominating but could put another Big 12 title to bed Tuesday.

KANSAS STATE (15-2, 4-0. Last week: Defeated TCU, Oklahoma. This week: Tuesday vs. Kansas, Saturday at Iowa State): Wildcats have to win Tuesday’s game to have any shot at a conference crown.

IOWA STATE (13-4, 3-1. Last week: Defeated West Virginia, TCU. This week: Wednesday at Texas Tech, Saturday vs. Kansas State): Cyclones have bounced back nicely from Fred Hoiberg’s brain cramp in Lawrence.

OKLAHOMA (12-4, 3-1. Last week: Defeated Texas Tech, lost to Kansas State. This week: Today vs. Texas, Saturday at Kansas): Didn’t take long for Lon Kruger to make the Sooners an NCAA-caliber team.

BAYLOR (12-5, 3-1. Last week: Lost to Kansas, defeated Hardin-Simmons. This week: Monday vs. Oklahoma State, Saturday at TCU): Bears out-toughed and out-coached at Kansas. Imagine that.

OKLAHOMA STATE (12-4, 2-2. Last week: Defeated Texas Tech. This week: Today at Baylor, Saturday at West Virginia): Cowboys need at least a split this week.

WEST VIRGINIA (8-9, 1-3. This week: Lost to Iowa State, Purdue. This week: Wednesday vs. TCU, Saturday at Oklahoma State): Mountaineers were embarrassed at Purdue.

TEXAS (8-9, 0-4. Last week: Lost to Kansas. This week: Today vs. Oklahoma, Saturday at Texas Tech): Longhorns absolutely wilted late against Jayhawks.

TEXAS TECH (8-8, 1-4. Last week: Lost to Oklahoma, Oklahoma State. This week: Wednesday vs. Iowa State, Saturday at Texas): Red Raiders grateful TCU joined league.

TCU (9-9, 0-5. Last week: Lost to Kansas State, Iowa State. This week: Wednesday at West Virginia, Saturday vs. Baylor): Quest for 0-18 still on track.
