Smith, Pack lead Kansas State past No. 23 Texas 66-65

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Kansas State finally is at full strength, and the Wildcats are eagerly making up ground.

Mark Smith scored 22 points, Nijel Pack made a go-ahead layup with 1:13 left, and Kansas State held No. 23 Texas scoreless for the final 3 1/2 minutes to rally for a 66-65 win on Tuesday night.

The Wildcats (10-7), hit hard by COVID-19, lost their first four Big 12 games. But with the roster restored, they beat No. 18 Texas Tech on Saturday before coming to Austin.

“I'm just thrilled for our guys,” coach Bruce Weber said. “It gives us another mark on the resume.”

Marcus Carr scored 19 of his season-best 25 points in the second half for Texas but missed a jumper with 2 seconds left, one of Texas' two chances to take the lead in the final minute. Courtney Ramey also misfired on a potential go-ahead jumper as Texas missed its last four shots from the field.

Pack finished with 16 points and Mike McGuirl added 13 for Kansas State, which closed the game with a 6-0 run.

Timmy Allen scored 15 points for Texas (13-5, 3-3), and his layup with 3:32 left put the Longhorns ahead 65-60. But he missed two free throws with 2:26 left and Texas leading 65-62. Markquis Nowell followed with two free throws for the Wildcats after Smith retrieved his missed 3-point attempt.

The game was tied at 55 when Texas’ Christian Bishop blocked a driving attempt by Nowell. Carr followed that play with consecutive mid-range jumpers, giving the Longhorns a four-point lead.

More for you

Texas led 35-31 after a first half in which both teams got into foul trouble. Each was whistled 12 times. Texas had five players with two fouls while Kansas State had four.

Smith, a rugged 6-foot-4, 225-pound guard who played at Illinois and Missouri before Kansas State, was too tough inside for Texas to handle. He hit 5 of 7 shots in the first half, helping the Wildcats stay in the game.

Thanks largely to Smith, Kansas State finished with a 28-16 scoring advantage in the paint

Kansas State had a 13-7 edge in second-chance points. The Wildcats finished with 23 fouls, three more than Texas.

“They turned the game into a street fight,” Texas coach Chris Beard said. “And we’re willing and able and capable and more than excited to be in a street fight.”

However, Beard added: "We had some players on our team tonight that looked like they kind of got punched in the face few times. We gotta be a lot more aggressive.”

The Wildcats, meanwhile, are working to salvage their season.

“Even though we lost a couple of games in the beginning, we were gaining confidence,” Smith said. “We knew we could be better. We never got down when we lost those first four games.”

BIG PICTURE

Kansas State: The Wildcats earned a split with Texas for the regular season. They were without Weber, two starters and a top substitute because of COVID-19 issues during a 70-57 home loss to Texas on Jan. 4, while the Longhorns were missing Andrew Jones.

Texas: Beard has said he expects the Longhorns will become a good 3-point shooting team, but they continue to struggle. They missed 13 of 17 against Kansas State and are hitting 31% in Big 12 play.

UP NEXT

Kansas State: Hosts No. 7 Kansas on Saturday.

“We can’t get emotionally drunk because Kansas is coming in,” Weber said. “We gotta have the same self-discipline and play the right way if we are gonna have a chance to beat another great team.”

Texas: Hosts Oklahoma State on Saturday. The Cowboys beat the Longhorns 64-51 on Jan. 8 in Stillwater.

The Kansas football program’s 2022 recruiting class now has its first in-state high school prospect.

A 6-foot-2, 185-pound senior defensive back from Mulvane, Mason Ellis gave head coach Lance Leipold and the KU staff his verbal commitment on Sunday.

Rated a two-star prospect by Rivals, Ellis previously had been committed to North Dakota State. He made three trips to KU in recent months, and was on campus this past weekend, when he decided to flip to KU.

With his pledge, Ellis became the first player currently tied to KU’s upcoming recruiting class who is from the Sunflower State.

The other high school athletes committed to KU are from Texas, Missouri and Michigan. The Jayhawks also have commitments from junior college prospects in Utah and Mississippi.

A former KU recruit, three-star Alabama athlete Nikki Taylor, who was recruited by former KU cornerbacks coach Chevis Jackson, is no longer a part of the Jayhawks’ 2022 class.

Growing up in Kansas, Ellis told Jon Kirby of Jayhawk Slant he’s long envisioned himself suiting up for KU.

“It's always been my dream since I was a little kid to play in the Big 12 play for Kansas,” Ellis said. “I went to Kansas football games when I was little, playing on the hill and all that. I mean, it's just surreal.”

Ellis told Jayhawk Slant that Leipold gave him a grayshirt offer. That plan would mean Ellis won’t enroll at KU and be on scholarship in 2022. Rather, he would officially join the program in the spring semester of 2023. In recent years, former KU staffs have taken that approach with players such as Torry Locklin and Amauri Pesek-Hickson.

With Ellis now in the mix, KU currently has seven commitments between its prep and juco recruits for the 2022 class. It’s expected Leipold and his staff will use the transfer portal to fortify much of its 2022 class, and they’ve already landed a couple of transfers in former Michigan State cornerback Kalon Gervin and former Nebraska running back Sevion Morrison.

The prospects who already are on board have the option of making their commitments to KU official when the early singing period begins on Wednesday. National Signing Day for the 2022 recruiting class will be Feb. 2.

All verbal commitments, of course, are nonbinding.

(Rivals rankings)

• Anthony Davis — 3-star Texas CB

• Kaleb Purdy — 3-star Missouri S

• Joey Baker — 3-star Texas OT

• James Livingston — 2-star Michigan OT

• Tevita Noa — 2-star Utah juco TE

Kansas State basketball bounces back, doubles up North Dakota, 84-42

MANHATTAN — Kansas State's basketball team, coming off a rough two-day outing at the Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City, found Bramlage Coliseum a friendlier environment Sunday.

Of course, facing North Dakota as opposed to nationally-ranked Arkansas and Illinois might have had something to do with that as well.

The Wildcats reeled off 16 straight points late in the second half to take control and proceeded to blow out North Dakota, 84-42, in front of a sparse holiday weekend crowd.

Still, it was a much-needed shot in the arm for K-State, which struggled to find consistency in any phase of their game Monday and Tuesday at T-Mobile Center.

Here are a couple of takeaways from dominating performance against North Dakota (2-5) as the Wildcats improved to 3-2.

Spreading the wealth

K-State can be pretty dynamic on offense when spreading the wealth and taking good shots.

The Wildcats shot 60.3% for the game, including 9 of 19 from 3-point range, and had five players score in double figures.

Center Kaosi Ezeagu scored a career-high 15 points and had a season-best seven rebounds, which was key with Davion Bradford, the Wildcats' other big man, sidelined while battling the lasting effects of pneumonia and strep throat from the preseason.

The guards did the rest, led by backup  Markquis Nowell with 18 points and five assists, and Nijel Pack with 16 points, including four 3-pointers. Mike McGuirl, back in the starting lineup, reached double figures for the first time this year with 15 points and Mark Smith had 11 points and a team-high 10 rebounds.

Team defense effective

The Wildcats were equally effective on the defensive end, limiting North Dakota to 29.3% and limiting the Fighting Hawks to 3 of 33 shooting from 3-point range.

K-State won the rebounding battle, 39-32, forced 17 turnovers and had 13 steals, leading to 25 points.

The Wildcats return to action Wednesday at Bramlage against Albany.

Saturday's Top 25 basketball: Grant-Foster saves No. 7 Kansas in win over North Dakota State

Lawrence, Kan. — The blueblood nature of Kansas means coach Bill Self rarely needs to mine the junior college ranks for talent.

He’s sure glad he found Tyon Grant-Foster.

The transfer from Indian Hills Community College drove for the go-ahead basket with just over a minute to go Saturday, then swatted away Sam Geisel’s layup with 10 seconds left, helping the sluggish seventh-ranked Jayhawks escape with a 65-61 victory over North Dakota State.

Kansas' Tyon Grant-Foster celebrates after the team's win over North Dakota State.

“Tyon was great, great, great down the stretch,” said Self, who wound up playing him more than 21 minutes off the bench. “I was really happy for him because he hasn’t had many opportunities yet.”

Jalen Wilson had 14 points and 15 rebounds, and Ochai Agbaji added 13 points, including a free throw in the final seconds that helped Kansas (4-1) finish off a 7-0 run to end the game inside a mostly empty Allen Fieldhouse.

“Those are the fun ones,” Agbaji said, “when the other team is in it.”

Kansas trailed 61-60 when Grant-Foster skated between two defenders for the go-ahead layup. North Dakota State (0-4) promptly turned it over with an offensive foul and then, after two free throws by Christian Braun at the other end, Grant-Foster made his mark on the defensive side.

“I knew No. 5 was going to shoot it and once he did the spin, I knew he wasn’t going to see me coming over because he turned his back to me,” Grant-Foster said. “And I love blocking shots, so I knew I was going to go get it.”

Tyree Eady led the Bison with 14 points. Rocky Kreuser added 11 before fouling out late.

“That’s on me. I have to put them in a better position down the stretch to finish things,” North Dakota State coach David Richman said. “We’re not into this thing for moral victories.”

After romping past Division II Washburn on Thursday night in their first home game of the season, the Jayhawks had their hands full with the first Division I foe of their five-game stand at the Phog.

In fact, the Bison ripped off the first eight points of the game and trailed just 35-33 at halftime.

The second half is when the Jayhawks usually assert control against unranked opponents – their last such loss in the Phog was in February 2018. But with only about 100 friends and family on hand because of the pandemic, there was none of the raucous noise and intimidating mystique that has given them such a home-floor advantage over the years.

North Dakota State gave up the first bucket of the second half but then ripped off an 11-2 run, at one point forcing Self to burn a timeout. And the Bison still led 51-44 with 12 minutes to go on a 3-pointer from Maleeck Harden-Hayes before the media timeout allowed the Jayhawks to gather their wits.

They responded with nine quick points of their own, suddenly attacking the basket with newfound aggression, only for North Dakota State to keep coming up with answers. The Bison hit a couple of baskets late in the shot clock, doing their best to shorten the game, and were left clinging to a 61-60 lead when Kansas called timeout with 1:38 to go.

That’s when Grant-Foster made the plays that defined the game.

“I thought he was playing better defense,” Self said, “and as he continues to play better defense, he’ll play more, and as he plays more his offense will come, because he’s a very talented offensive player.”

(At) No. 10 Houston 77, South Carolina 67: Quentin Grimes had 23 points and seven rebounds, Tramon Mark added 18 points and Houston rallied past South Carolina.

Grimes scored 19 points in the second half, including 12 of 13 from the free throw line. Mark scored 11 points after the break, including 6 of 7 from the line.

Houston (4-0) shot 38% and made 4 of 19 3-point attempts. Houston was helped by 31-for-38 shooting from the free throw line.

Houston coach Kelvin Sampson and his son, assistant coach Kellen Sampson, missed the game because of COVID-19 and contact tracing protocols. Assistant coach Quannas White served as Houston’s coach.

Justin Minaya scored 13 points and Jermaine Couisnard and Keyshawn Bryant added 10 points apiece for South Carolina (1-2), which shot 44%. The Gamecocks made 17 of 29 shots from the line.

Bison men’s basketball hits road for Kansas City, Oral Roberts

The Games

Winners of six of the last eight games, the North Dakota State men’s basketball team (11-6 overall, 3-2 Summit) will travel to take on Kansas City on Thursday, Jan. 20, and Oral Roberts on Saturday, Jan. 22.

The Series vs. Kansas City

Thursday will be the 19th meeting all-time between NDSU and Kansas City. The Bison hold a 13-5 lead in the series after winning two of three games against the Roos last season. The schools split their two meetings in Kansas City on Jan. 29-30 last season, before NDSU won 69-65 in the quarterfinals of the Summit League Tournament. 

Against Kansas City

Tyree Eady led the Bison in scoring in their three games against Kansas City last season, averaging 14.3 points on 61-percent shooting vs. the Roos.

The Series vs. Oral Roberts

Saturday will be the 33rd meeting all-time between North Dakota State and Oral Roberts, with the Bison leading the series 17-15. NDSU has won 12 of the 18 meetings since ORU returned to The Summit League in the 2014-15 season. 

Against Oral Roberts

Rocky Kreuser averaged 20.3 points in NDSU’s three meetings with Oral Roberts last season, including a career-high 34 points in the championship game of the Summit League Tournament. Sam Griesel averaged 11.0 points and 9.7 rebounds in the three games against ORU.

Multiple Threats

Four Bison are shooting 42 percent or better from three-point range in Summit League play. Sam Griesel is 7-for-12 (58 percent) from beyond the arc, Jarius Cook is 10-for-20 (50 percent), and Boden Skunberg and Grant Nelson are also above that mark. 

Significant Difference

The Bison are shooting 40 percent from three-point range in Summit League play and limiting their opponents to 30 percent from beyond the arc.

Climbing the Charts

With 68 points over the past three games, Rocky Kreuser moved into NDSU’s all-time Top 20 for career points. He now ranks 16th in school history with 1,423 points.

Peterson: Tristan Enaruna returns to Allen Fieldhouse, this time as a Cyclone

AMES — You probably won’t see it on camera after Tuesday’s 7 p.m. Iowa State-Kansas game at Allen Fieldhouse, the way Cyclones forward Tristan Enaruna and Jayhawks coach Bill Self interact.

They’ll either acknowledge one another with a quick wink or a smile.

Maybe even a fist-bump or a hug.

However it happens, I’m of the notion it will be done cordially and with genuine respect.

Enaruna transferred after two seasons at Kansas to where he’s starting for an Iowa State team whose 13-2 record includes 1-2 in the Big 12 Conference. They parted after last season on good terms.

Tuesday, they’ll reunite, as will Jalen Coleman-Lands with Iowa State teammates with whom he played during the Cyclones’ 2-22 season of 2020-21.

It’s like they passed in the transfer portal, which actually is accurate. They were in limbo at the same time for 12 days, before Enaruna made his transfer to Iowa State official on April 21, and Coleman-Lands did likewise to Kansas on May 19.

Here's part of what Iowa State will experience Tuesday night at Kansas' always-energetic Allen Fieldhouse.

“The reason I transferred was because I felt like I needed a different environment to develop,” Enaruna said Monday. “I learned a lot when I was over there. I had to take another step. I felt like it was going to be better for me to do that somewhere else.”

Enaruna’s relationship with his new coach started when he was in high school. Renewing that relationship happened quickly.

“T.J. was the first guy that reached out to me after I entered the portal,” Enaruna said of Iowa State’s T.J. Otzelberger. “He knew me since high school, when he was still (coaching) at South Dakota State. We started talking right from that moment when I hit the portal.

“We created a good relationship. I trusted them as a coaching staff. I felt like it was a good opportunity, with a new team and new guys.”

Who got the better end of the deal?

Depends on what you’re looking for. Enaruna has started all 15 games, and he’s averaging 6.8 points while playing an average of 17.6 minutes.

More:Peterson: Free-throw disparity was far from only reason Iowa State lost at Oklahoma

Coleman-Lands, a reserve on the nation’s No. 10-ranked team, averages 11.1 minutes and 5.3 points a game. He’s made 16 of his 37 3-point attempts, while Enaruna generally shoots from mid-range.

I’d say both teams got what they needed — 16th-ranked Iowa State a valuable starter, and Kansas a reserve who can score from distance.

A year ago, Tristan Enaruna played for Kansas against Iowa State. Tuesday, he's a Cyclones facing the Jayhawks.

“I think it’s going to be a lot of fun,” Enaruna said of returning to one of the nation’s toughest places to play. “Obviously, I still have a good relationship with those guys.”

And yes, that relationship includes Self.

“He thought it was a good thing for me,” Enaruna said of the transfer. “It’s not that he wanted me gone; he felt like I needed a different opportunity as well.

“He was very optimistic, very supportive of it. He knew (Otzelberger) was a good coach. He pretty much just wished me the best.”

How will Tyrese Hunter handle Allen Fieldhouse?

Enaruna has played 27 games at Kansas’ Allen Fieldhouse. He’s experienced the friendly side of what’s always one of the top two (Hilton Coliseum being the other) most enthusiastic crowds in the Big 12.

Point guard teammate Tyrese Hunter, however, will be venturing into Kansas’ museum-like arena for the first time. A rookie in the Big 12, he’s also a newbie when it comes to experiencing what he’ll experience Tuesday.

“The crowd (and) how loud it gets — we can’t let that take away our focus,” Enaruna said. “That’s really what they want. They’re going to try to speed you up.”

Despite being just 18 years old, and with only 15 college games on his resume, Hunter will be the player trying to prevent that from happening.

“During the break, I looked at the top six conferences — there’s maybe 22 freshmen starting in all those leagues,” Otzelberger said. “Five or six of them are point guards.

Jalen Coleman-Lands faced Kansas as an Iowa State player last season. Tuesday, he's a Jayhawk facing the Cyclones.

“There’s a reason why the Big 12 is the best league in the country. One part of that reason is everybody’s old. Everybody’s playing experienced guys. There’s not very many freshmen, or sophomores even, playing on the teams in this league.

“When you think what we’re asking of Tyrese Hunter, it’s a tall task. He’s continuing to get better. He’s a competitor and loves a challenge.”

Especially a challenge like the Kansas crowd will present Tuesday.

“I know it’ll be loud,” Hunter said after playing very well in Saturday’s loss at Oklahoma. “I just have to play my game.”

AUSTIN, Texas – Mark Smith scored 22 points, Nijel Pack made a go-ahead layup with 1:13 left, and Kansas State held No. 23 Texas scoreless for the final 3 1/2 minutes to rally for a 66-65 win on Tuesday night.

Marcus Carr scored 19 of his season-best 25 points in the second half for Texas but missed a jumper with 2 seconds left, one of Texas’ two chances to take the lead in the final minute. Courtney Ramey also misfired on a potential go-ahead jumper as Texas missed its last four shots from the field.

Pack finished with 16 points and Mike McGuirl added 13 for Kansas State (10-7, 2-4 Big 12), which closed the game with a 6-0 run.

Timmy Allen scored 15 points for Texas (13-5, 3-3), and his layup with 3:32 left put the Longhorns ahead 65-60. He missed two free throws with 2:26 left and Texas leading 65-62. Markquis Nowell followed with two free throws for the Wildcats.

The game was tied at 55 when Texas’ Christian Bishop blocked a driving attempt by Nowell. Carr followed that play with consecutive mid-range jumpers, giving the Longhorns a four-point lead.

Texas led 35-31 after a first half in which both teams got into foul trouble. Each was whistled 12 times. Texas had five players with two fouls while Kansas State had four.

Smith, a rugged 6-foot-4, 225-pound guard who played at Illinois and Missouri before Kansas State, was too tough inside for Texas to handle. He hit 5 of 7 shots in the first half.

BIG PICTURE

Kansas State: The Wildcats look like a new team lately. They were at full strength for the first time this season during a 62-51 win over No. 18 Texas Tech on Saturday. They were without coach Bruce Webber, two starters and a top substitute because of COVID-19 issues during a 70-57 loss to Texas on Jan. 4, while the Longhorns were missing Andrew Jones.

Texas: The Longhorns continue to struggle from 3-point range. They missed 13 of 17 against Kansas State and are hitting 31% in Big 12 play.

UP NEXT

Kansas State: Hosts No. 7 Kansas on Saturday.

Texas: Hosts Oklahoma State on Saturday. The Cowboys beat the Longhorns 64-51 on Jan. 8 in Stillwater.

The Kansas football program’s 2022 recruiting class now has its first in-state high school prospect.

A 6-foot-2, 185-pound senior defensive back from Mulvane, Mason Ellis gave head coach Lance Leipold and the KU staff his verbal commitment on Sunday.

Rated a two-star prospect by Rivals, Ellis previously had been committed to North Dakota State. He made three trips to KU in recent months, and was on campus this past weekend, when he decided to flip to KU.

With his pledge, Ellis became the first player currently tied to KU’s upcoming recruiting class who is from the Sunflower State.

The other high school athletes committed to KU are from Texas, Missouri and Michigan. The Jayhawks also have commitments from junior college prospects in Utah and Mississippi.

A former KU recruit, three-star Alabama athlete Nikki Taylor, who was recruited by former KU cornerbacks coach Chevis Jackson, is no longer a part of the Jayhawks’ 2022 class.

Growing up in Kansas, Ellis told Jon Kirby of Jayhawk Slant he’s long envisioned himself suiting up for KU.

“It's always been my dream since I was a little kid to play in the Big 12 play for Kansas,” Ellis said. “I went to Kansas football games when I was little, playing on the hill and all that. I mean, it's just surreal.”

Ellis told Jayhawk Slant that Leipold gave him a grayshirt offer. That plan would mean Ellis won’t enroll at KU and be on scholarship in 2022. Rather, he would officially join the program in the spring semester of 2023. In recent years, former KU staffs have taken that approach with players such as Torry Locklin and Amauri Pesek-Hickson.

With Ellis now in the mix, KU currently has seven commitments between its prep and juco recruits for the 2022 class. It’s expected Leipold and his staff will use the transfer portal to fortify much of its 2022 class, and they’ve already landed a couple of transfers in former Michigan State cornerback Kalon Gervin and former Nebraska running back Sevion Morrison.

The prospects who already are on board have the option of making their commitments to KU official when the early singing period begins on Wednesday. National Signing Day for the 2022 recruiting class will be Feb. 2.

All verbal commitments, of course, are nonbinding.

Men’s Basketball: Roos struggle in frustrating weekend against South Dakota

Kansas City’s men’s basketball team lost its final two games of the regular season at South Dakota State in a weekend double-header. The Jackrabbits won 67-49 on Friday and 89-77 on Saturday.

Entering Friday’s game, the Roos were in the midst of a five-game win streak. The Roos fought to maintain their momentum, but eventually ran out of gas in the second half.

The matchup against first-place South Dakota State was never going to be easy, but Kansas City kept it close in the first half, trailing only 31-26 at the break.

The Roos offense struggled the rest of the game. The Jackrabbits’ defense shut down Kansas City late, and the Roos failed to record a field goal in the last seven minutes of the contest.

Brandon McKissic and Josiah Allick once again led the Roos in scoring, with 17 and 12 respectively. Kansas City was without its energetic defender Zion Williams, who fouled out of the game. 

Saturday’s game, the last of the season, brought another loss for the Roos. McKissic did not play in the game, but the Roos managed to perform much better offensively. Allick led the Roos with 17 points, while Marvin Nesbitt Jr. added 16 points and Franck Kamgain put up 10 points.  As a team, Kansas City made 10 three pointers compared to South Dakota’s four.

The Roos’ starters racked up early fouls which limited their playing time, with Allick only playing 24 minutes of the game. With Kansas City’s big man missing time, the Jackrabbits dominated the boards, out rebounding Kansas City 26-13.

Ultimately, the Roos’ 30 total fouls thwarted any chance of finishing the season strong. South Dakota took advantage and made an astounding 35 free throws, outscoring Kansas City 35-11 from the line. Allick, Nesbitt Jr., and Caden Boser all fouled out, and Williams and Kamgain finished with four fouls each.

With the weekend’s results finalized, the Roos finished in sixth place in the Summit League. 

Kansas City hopes to have a healthy roster before the league tournament begins next week on March 10.

Big 12 Conference

College athletics conference operating primarily in the west-central United States

"Big 12" redirects here. For the high school conference in Central Illinois, see Big Twelve Conference (Illinois). For the high school conference in Northeastern Illinois, see Northern Illinois Big 12 Conference. For the Brazilian football group, see Big Twelve (Brazilian football).

The Big 12 Conference is a college athletic conference headquartered in Irving, Texas, USA. It consists of ten full-member universities. It is a member of Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) for all sports. Its football teams compete in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS; formerly Division I-A), the higher of two levels of NCAA Division I football competition. Its 10 members, in the states of Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and West Virginia, include eight public and two private Christian universities. Additionally, the Big 12 has 12 affiliate members — eight for the sport of wrestling, one for women's equestrianism, one for women's gymnastics and two for women's rowing. The Big 12 Conference is a 501(c)(3)nonprofit organization.[2] The Big 12 Conference commissioner is Bob Bowlsby.

The Big 12 Conference was founded in February 1994. The eight members of the former Big Eight Conference joined with the Southwest Conference universities University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University, Baylor University and Texas Tech University to form the conference, with play beginning in 1996.[3] The conference's current ten campus makeup resulted from the 2010–2013 Big 12 Conference realignment, in which Nebraska joined the Big Ten Conference, Colorado joined the Pac-12, and Texas A&M and Missouri joined the Southeastern Conference. Texas Christian University and West Virginia University joined from the Mountain West and Big East Conferences respectively to offset two of the departing universities, bringing the conference to its current strength.

The Big 12 Conference, like others involved in the realignment, has kept its name primarily for marketing purposes. The conference has high name recognition and remains one of the Power Five conferences which are considered the primary contenders to produce a College Football Playoff champion team in any given year.

On July 26, 2021, the University of Texas at Austin and University of Oklahoma notified the Big 12 Conference that they did not wish to extend their grant of television rights beyond its expiration date of June 30, 2025. On July 29, the presidents and chancellors of Southeastern Conference member universities unanimously voted to officially invite those two schools. On September 10, 2021, the eight remaining members of the Big 12 voted to accept Brigham Young University (BYU), the University of Cincinnati, the University of Houston, and the University of Central Florida (UCF) into the Big 12.[4]

Sports[edit]

The Big 12 Conference sponsors championship competition in ten men's and thirteen women's NCAA sanctioned sports.[33]

[edit]

Below are the men's sports sponsored by each member institution. The only sports with full participation by the entire conference are basketball, football, and golf. Swimming and diving has the least participation with only three universities fielding a team; one of these three (Texas) has announced its departure, but future full members BYU and Cincinnati also sponsor the sport. The conference fields 12 teams for wrestling, the most of any sport, with only four teams being full-time members, as well as eight affiliate members. California Baptist is currently scheduled to join as a wrestling-only member in 2022–23.

Departing members are highlighted in red.

Men's (and Coed – see Rifle) varsity sports not sponsored by the Big 12 Conference which are played by Big 12 universities:

  1. ^Rifle is often categorized as a men's sport because the NCAA bylaws that establish scholarship limits for each sport list rifle as a men's sport.[34] Nonetheless, it is an open coed sport in NCAA college athletics, with men's, women's, and coed teams in all NCAA divisions competing against each other. TCU and West Virginia both field coed teams. Through 2017, West Virginia with 19 national titles and TCU with two, together have won over half of the NCAA titles awarded since the inaugural NCAA championship in 1980. West Virginia also won four pre-NCAA national titles.
  2. ^West Virginia will move men's soccer to Conference USA in 2022.[35]
  3. ^UCF has not announced what conference their men's soccer team will compete in since it is not sponsored by the Big 12.

[edit]

Below are women's sports sponsored by the member institutions. Six sports have full participation from the entire conference, including future members: basketball, cross country, soccer, tennis, indoor track and outdoor track. Equestrian and gymnastics have the lowest participation with three full-time members and one affiliate participating; while gymnastics will lose a full-time member once Oklahoma departs, future member BYU sponsors the sport.

The Kansas football program’s 2022 recruiting class now has its first in-state high school prospect.

A 6-foot-2, 185-pound senior defensive back from Mulvane, Mason Ellis gave head coach Lance Leipold and the KU staff his verbal commitment on Sunday.

Rated a two-star prospect by Rivals, Ellis previously had been committed to North Dakota State. He made three trips to KU in recent months, and was on campus this past weekend, when he decided to flip to KU.

With his pledge, Ellis became the first player currently tied to KU’s upcoming recruiting class who is from the Sunflower State.

Men’s Basketball: Roos struggle in frustrating weekend against South Dakota

Kansas City’s men’s basketball team lost its final two games of the regular season at South Dakota State in a weekend double-header. The Jackrabbits won 67-49 on Friday and 89-77 on Saturday.

Entering Friday’s game, the Roos were in the midst of a five-game win streak. The Roos fought to maintain their momentum, but eventually ran out of gas in the second half.

The matchup against first-place South Dakota State was never going to be easy, but Kansas City kept it close in the first half, trailing only 31-26 at the break.

The Roos offense struggled the rest of the game. The Jackrabbits’ defense shut down Kansas City late, and the Roos failed to record a field goal in the last seven minutes of the contest.

Brandon McKissic and Josiah Allick once again led the Roos in scoring, with 17 and 12 respectively. Kansas City was without its energetic defender Zion Williams, who fouled out of the game. 

Saturday’s game, the last of the season, brought another loss for the Roos. McKissic did not play in the game, but the Roos managed to perform much better offensively. Allick led the Roos with 17 points, while Marvin Nesbitt Jr. added 16 points and Franck Kamgain put up 10 points.  As a team, Kansas City made 10 three pointers compared to South Dakota’s four.

The Roos’ starters racked up early fouls which limited their playing time, with Allick only playing 24 minutes of the game. With Kansas City’s big man missing time, the Jackrabbits dominated the boards, out rebounding Kansas City 26-13.

Ultimately, the Roos’ 30 total fouls thwarted any chance of finishing the season strong. South Dakota took advantage and made an astounding 35 free throws, outscoring Kansas City 35-11 from the line. Allick, Nesbitt Jr., and Caden Boser all fouled out, and Williams and Kamgain finished with four fouls ku vs south dakota state basketball the weekend’s results finalized, the Roos finished in sixth place in the Summit League. 

Kansas City hopes to have a healthy roster before the league tournament begins next week on March 10.

Peterson: Tristan Enaruna returns to Allen Fieldhouse, this time as a Cyclone

AMES — You probably won’t see it on camera after Tuesday’s 7 p.m. Iowa State-Kansas game at Allen Fieldhouse, the way Cyclones forward Tristan Enaruna and Jayhawks coach Bill Self interact.

They’ll either acknowledge one another with a quick wink or a smile.

Maybe even a fist-bump or a hug.

However it happens, I’m of the notion it will be done cordially and with genuine respect.

Enaruna transferred after two seasons at Kansas to where he’s starting for an Iowa State team whose 13-2 record includes 1-2 in the Big 12 Conference. They parted after last season on good terms.

More:Iowa State drops in latest men's basketball polls after going 1-1 last week in Big 12 play

Tuesday, they’ll reunite, as will Jalen Coleman-Lands with Iowa State teammates with whom he played during the Cyclones’ 2-22 season of 2020-21.

It’s like they passed in the transfer portal, which actually is accurate. They were in limbo at the same time for 12 days, before Enaruna made his transfer to Iowa State official on April 21, and Coleman-Lands did likewise to Kansas on May 19.

Here's part of what Iowa State will experience Tuesday night at Kansas' always-energetic Allen Fieldhouse.

“The reason I transferred was because I felt like I needed a different environment to develop,” Enaruna said Monday. “I learned a lot when I was over what is capital market efficiency in finance. I had to take another step. I felt like it was going to be better for me to do that somewhere else.”

Enaruna’s relationship with his new coach started when he was in high school. Renewing that relationship happened quickly.

“T.J. was the first guy that reached out to me after I entered the portal,” Enaruna said of Iowa State’s T.J. Otzelberger. “He knew me since high school, when he was still (coaching) at South Dakota State. We started talking right from that moment when I hit the portal.

“We created a good relationship. I trusted them as a coaching staff. I felt like it was a good opportunity, with a new team and new guys.”

Who got the better end of the deal?

Depends on what you’re looking for. Enaruna has started all 15 games, and he’s averaging 6.8 points while playing an average of 17.6 minutes.

More:Peterson: Free-throw disparity was far from only reason Iowa State lost at Oklahoma

Coleman-Lands, a reserve on the nation’s No. 10-ranked team, averages 11.1 minutes and 5.3 points a game. He’s made 16 of his 37 3-point attempts, while Enaruna generally shoots from mid-range.

I’d say both teams got what they needed — 16th-ranked Iowa State a valuable starter, and Kansas a reserve who can score from distance.

A year ago, Tristan Enaruna played for Kansas against Iowa State. Tuesday, he's a Cyclones facing the Jayhawks.

“I think it’s going to be a lot of fun,” Enaruna said of returning to one of the nation’s toughest places to play. “Obviously, I still have a good relationship with those guys.”

And yes, that relationship includes Self.

“He thought it was a good thing for me,” Enaruna said of the transfer. “It’s not that he wanted me gone; he felt like I needed a different opportunity as well.

“He was very optimistic, very supportive of it. He knew (Otzelberger) was a good coach. He pretty much just wished me the best.”

How will Tyrese Hunter handle Allen Fieldhouse?

Enaruna has played 27 games at Kansas’ Allen Fieldhouse. He’s experienced the friendly side of what’s always one of the top two (Hilton Coliseum being the other) most enthusiastic crowds in the Big 12.

Point guard teammate Tyrese Hunter, however, will be venturing into Kansas’ museum-like arena for the first time. A rookie in the Big 12, he’s also a newbie when it comes to experiencing what he’ll experience Tuesday.

More:What channel is Iowa State basketball vs. Kansas? How to watch the Jayhawks play the Cyclones

“The crowd (and) how loud it gets — we can’t let that take away our focus,” Enaruna said. “That’s really what they want. They’re going to try to speed you up.”

Despite being just 18 years old, and with only 15 college games on his resume, Hunter will be the player trying to prevent that from happening.

“During the break, I looked at the top six conferences — there’s maybe 22 freshmen starting in all those leagues,” Otzelberger said. “Five or six of them are point guards.

Jalen Coleman-Lands faced Kansas as an Iowa State player last season. Tuesday, he's a Jayhawk facing the Cyclones.

“There’s a reason why the Big 12 is the best league in the country. One part of that reason is everybody’s old. Everybody’s playing experienced guys. There’s not very many freshmen, or sophomores even, playing on the teams in this league.

“When you think what we’re asking of Tyrese Hunter, it’s a tall task. He’s continuing to get better. Ku vs south dakota state basketball a competitor and loves a challenge.”

Saturday's Top 25 basketball: Grant-Foster saves No. 7 Kansas in win over North Dakota State

Lawrence, Kan. — The blueblood nature of Kansas means coach Bill Self rarely needs to mine the junior college ranks for talent.

He’s sure glad he found Tyon Grant-Foster.

The transfer from Indian Hills Community College drove for the go-ahead basket with just over a minute to go Saturday, then swatted away Sam Geisel’s layup with 10 seconds left, helping the sluggish seventh-ranked Jayhawks escape with a 65-61 victory over North Dakota State.

Kansas' Tyon Grant-Foster celebrates after the team's win over North Dakota State.

“Tyon was great, great, great down the stretch,” said Self, who wound up playing him more than 21 minutes off the bench. “I was really happy for him because he hasn’t had ku vs south dakota state basketball opportunities yet.”

Jalen Wilson had 14 points and 15 rebounds, and Ochai Agbaji added 13 points, including a free throw in the final seconds that helped Kansas (4-1) finish off a 7-0 run to end the game inside a mostly empty Allen Fieldhouse.

“Those are the fun ones,” Agbaji said, “when the other team is in it.”

Kansas trailed 61-60 when Grant-Foster skated between two defenders for the go-ahead layup. North Dakota State (0-4) promptly turned it over with an offensive foul and then, after two free throws by Christian Braun at the other end, Grant-Foster made his mark on the defensive side.

“I knew No. 5 was going to shoot it and once he did the spin, I knew he wasn’t going to see me coming over because he turned his back to me,” Grant-Foster said. “And I love blocking shots, so I knew I was going to go get it.”

Tyree Eady led the Bison with 14 points. Rocky Kreuser added 11 before fouling out late.

“That’s on me. I have to put them in a better position down the stretch to finish things,” North Dakota State coach David Richman said. “We’re not into this thing for moral victories.”

North Dakota State gave up the first bucket of the second half but then ripped off an 11-2 run, at one point forcing Self to burn a timeout. And the Bison still led 51-44 with 12 minutes to go on a 3-pointer from Maleeck Harden-Hayes before the media timeout allowed the Jayhawks to gather their wits.

They responded with nine quick points ku vs south dakota state basketball their own, suddenly attacking the basket with newfound aggression, only for North Dakota State to keep coming up with answers. The Bison hit a couple of baskets late in the shot clock, doing their best to shorten the game, and were left clinging to a 61-60 lead when Kansas called timeout with 1:38 to go.

That’s when Grant-Foster made the plays that defined the game.

“I thought he was playing better defense,” Self said, “and health savings account rules 2019 irs he continues to play better defense, he’ll play more, and as he plays more his offense will come, because he’s a very talented offensive player.”
