You can also chalk up Oklahoma's struggles to the strength of the teams in the Big 12 Conference. Each wants to take one more step in their final go-round, but they realize that any championship dream must start with a win over Baylor Thursday.

Although Self said he was not complaining about the result, it was crystal clear, both through his words and those of the Kansas players scattered throughout the KU locker room, that a similar showing on Saturday would not lead to the same result.

The Jayhawks earned the regular season title, and they've won 14 consecutive and 61 overall conference titles, which are NCAA records. But after Williams missed at the other end for TCU, coach Jamie Dixon elected to play defense rather than foul the Wildcats. "They were more aggressive in the first half, when they popped a little bit of a lead, and again when we got close in the second half".

According to oddsmakers, West Virginia is favored in this game, as the Mountaineers are getting odds of -2 points against the Red Raiders. Mykhailiuk is averaging 15.2 points per game along with 4.2 rebounds per game.
