Big 12 Basketball Tournament TicketsThe Big 12 has a short but proud history as one of the few major power conferences in NCAA Division I basketball. It was created in 1994 from the merging of the Big Eight Conference with the four Texas schools from the Southwest Conference. Following conference realignment in 2012, the Big 12 is now comprised of 10 teams: eight original members plus West Virginia and Texas Christian. The conference has produced a single national championship: the 2008 Kansas Jayhawks, which featured Mario Chalmers, Darrell Arthur and Brandon Rush. The Big 12 Tournament (also known as the Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship) is held during the weekend after the final games of the regular season. Besides bragging rights and a place in history, the winner of the tournament also receives an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. Anyone can earn a spot regardless of the team’s regular season record. If you want to catch your favorite team competing against its conference rivals, then you should purchase your Big 12 basketball tournament tickets at StubHub, a leading source for live events.
