The Jayhawks closed out their regular season by beating the Baylor Bears at Allen Fieldhouse, completing a perfect home slate in 2018-19. It was a decently uneventful game, but we’re ready to recap their final tune-up before postseason play begins.

The Big 12 Award Show is here! We break down who won the awards, but more importantly, we tell you who should have won all of the awards. Big 12 Player of the Year Dedric Lawson may have been snubbed in the real awards, but he wasn’t snubbed in our award show! We break down the final league standings and talk about who should have brought home the hardware.

Up next: the Big 12 tournament in Kansas City! No. 3 Kansas takes on Texas in a Thursday night quarterfinal battle. We make our predictions for both the game and the tournament as a whole, discussing who we think wins the trophy at the Sprint Center.
