Big 12 Tournament To Wrap On Saturday

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (AP) -- For the first time the Big 12 conference tournament will wrap up on a Saturday.

Coaches have wanted the change from a Sunday final to give the NCAA selection committee a day to sort out things.

With a Sunday final the committee had just a few hours to factor in results from the championship game.  Schools also get an extra 24 hours of rest and preparation time.

The tournament is March 11-14 in Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma State's Travis Ford says he'd rather the entire conference tournament not be a factor considered by the NCAA Tournament selection committee.

He says even first-round byes can be a mixed blessing because it eliminates another shot at building the team's resume.
