21-6, 1st in Big 12

Will Oklahoma, which has lost five straight, try to rekindle some of its earlier form by going back to the Hack-a-Dok strategy that helped it beat Kansas 85-80 on Jan. 23? The Sooners intentionally fouled 7-foot Kansas center Udoka Azubuike several times in the win as he shot 1 of 7 from the line. Azubuike has slightly improved his free-throw shooting over the past month. He was at 41 percent before the debacle in Norman; he's now shooting 44.7 percent.

Another Big Monday at tap at Allen Fieldhouse, where No. 8 Kansas faces slumping Oklahoma and star freshman Trae Young tonight. The Jayhawks are also home next Monday against Texas, sandwiched around a visit Saturday to Texas Tech, which will loom extremely large in Kansas' bid to win at least a share of its 14th straight Big 12 title. Coach Bill Self is 24-0 at home on Big Monday.

College hoops Power Rankings: Will SEC's depth hurt teams in March?

Eleven SEC teams are within striking distance of the tournament, so what's the problem? They're building their résumés and metrics by beating each other, so the committee might value the league differently when selecting the field.

Huggins hacked off by 35-2 disparity at FT line

West Virginia coach Bob Huggins was ejected for arguing with officials in the final minute of Saturday's loss at Kansas. Afterward, he revealed the main source of his ire: the disparity in the teams' number of free-throw attempts.

TONIGHT HEADLINES: Virginia wouldn't lose a No. 1 seed with a loss at Miami, but would certainly drop from No, 1 overall. Kansas, which shouldn't be a No. 2 seed ahead of Texas Tech, would have to drop with a loss at Iowa State. Michigan State could make the Committee look smart with a loss at Minnesota, however unlikely. Maryland must win at Nebraska to get back in the hunt; Huskers must win to stay there. And don't get me started on Oklahoma as a No. 4. Will cover it all tonight from the debut of the #InfinityBracketBunker.
