Kansas finished the regular season 28-3 overall after defeating Oklahoma State on Saturday. The Jayhawks’ first win in Stillwater since 2013 gave KU a 16-2 league record, which exceeded everyone’s expectations and slingshotted Frank Mason to the top of Player of the Year boards.

We recap the game, talk about all of the conference games and league winners, and hand out Big 12 awards. We then preview the entire Big 12 tournament, making picks to win the first and second round games heading into the later half of the week.
