2009-2010 Record: 16-15 (10-8 Conference)
2009-2010 Postseason Results:
At some point in the last 10 years, the Big 12 surpassed the ACC and Pac-10 and entered a toe-to-toe contest with the Big East for the right to be called the nation's best basketball conference.
These things have often proven cyclical over time, though the Big 12 is preparing to lose its two weakest basketball schools in Colorado and Nebraska for next season. But this year, the Big 12 may be the nation's best.
