The third time was the charm for Kansas. They bowed out early in the Big 12 tournament at the hands of in state rival Oklahoma State, and now are in jeopardy of missing the tourney. Yankuba Sima also scored 11 points - all in the first half. Wigginton seems to just be scratching the surface of his overall abilities but he has shown promise with his natural scoring abilities and athleticism.
"The big fella, he's a key part of our team, but without him, we can play a little faster and be a little scrappier and the guards, we were able to dictate the offense a little bit more", said Malik Newman, who led Kansas with 30 points.
Hardly a surprise, given the teams split in the regular-season with each winning at home. An 18-round heavyweight bout, a line Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton likes to drop here and there, doesn't exist. No. 4 Kansas State, No. 5 TCU, and No. 6 Baylor.

But the Wildcats outscored TCU 7-5 in overtime to advance. But the 60-percent foul shooter missed the first of two free throws, forcing him to miss the second, and the Wildcats corralled the rebound to seal the win. Kenrich Williams led TCU with a total of 20 points, giving them a huge lift, but just wouldn't be enough in the end.

Forty minutes wasn't enough to determine a victor in the Big 12 Tournament quarterfinal between the Wildcats and the TCU Horned Frogs. "I'll sleep well this week knowing that if anybody who watched our team play, hard to deny we're a pretty damn good team and worthy of the tournament and can have success against anybody". Kansas Led by a 43-42 margin at halftime and pulled away in the 2nd half after a 14-0 Jayhawks run gave Kansas a 66-50 lead with 8:14 left in regulation. Marcus Garrett (eight points, five boards) missed a three-pointer, but after a Wildcats rebound, Garrett plucked a steal and hit a layup that made it 55-51 KU at 9:55.
Texas Tech is tough. And, as of Monday, most hoops bracketologists have seven, eight and, in some cases, nine of the 10 teams making the NCAA Tournament when the field is announced this Sunday.
The Longhorns weren't almost as efficient as their counterparts-they shot 43.1 percent from the field and 38.9 percent from three-but Jacob Young's out-of-nowhere eruption off the bench kept them afloat. Leading the way for the Wildcats was Makol Mawien who had 16 points, 9 rebounds, 3 blocks, and a steal.
With their conference tournament stay over, the Longhorns will now sit and wait for the selection committee's decision.
