Big 12 Basketball Rules the Day – February 10

Joe Berra

There are seven Big 12 basketball games on today’s schedule. That means that all 14 Big 12 basketball teams are in action. That’s important because the conference is one of the elites in college basketball. Six of the conference’s 14 teams are ranked in the latest AP Top 25 poll. No. 4 Kansas and No. 5 Houston are both eyeing No. 1 seeds in the upcoming NCAA tournament. There could be 11 Big 12 basketball teams that make March Madness.

The big matchup today in Big 12 basketball pits No. 13 Baylor at No. 4 Kansas. The Jayhawks are coming off a loss to in-state and Big 12 rival Kansas State.

Coaching Moves, Super Bowl Tomorrow

We are just one day away from Super Bowl LVIII. Sports Hub has you covered and we’ve been at it all week long with great content and our cappers have a number of picks already available. Some of those picks are on Super Bowl props. There have been some coaching moves in both the NFL and college football that will impact next season. Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid will likely return, but not until the postseason.

Let’s look at what’s trending.

  • Kelly to Ohio State: Bill O’Brien was hired to be the Ohio State offensive coordinator but then took the head coaching job at Boston College. To replace O’Brien, the Buckeyes hired UCLA head coach Chip Kelly. Kelly is known for his high-scoring and wide open offenses.
  • Seahawks hire Grubb: Ryan Grubb will be the Seattle Seahawks new offensive coordinator. Grubb had been at the University of Washington with Kalen DeBoer and moved with him to Alabama. However, he will join new Seahawks head coach Mike McDonald back in Seattle.
  • Embiid ready for playoffs: Sixers star and NBA-leading scorer Joel Embiid underwent surgery on his left knee and will likely miss the rest of the regular season. Team president Daryl Morey is hopeful that Embiid will be back and ready for this year’s playoffs.

That’s it for today. One more day and it’s Super Bowl Sunday! Enjoy today’s Big 12 basketball games as well as the rest of them. Check our picks database throughout the day for winning college basketball picks. Then, come back tomorrow as we make the final preparations for tomorrow’s big game.
