Big 12 Tournament bracket: Full TV schedule, scores, results for 2021 basketball tournament

The 2021 Big 12 Tournament will feature a team that not only has never earned the No. 1 seed of the tournament before, but also had never won a Big 12 regular-season title until 2020-21.

It has been a fantastic season for Baylor (21-1, 13-1), which, despite enjoying a string of successful seasons under coach Scott Drew, had never earned the distinction it has heading into this week’s tournament. The Bears secured their first Big 12 title with a March 2 overtime win over West Virginia. It is their first conference title overall since 1950, when they were still a member of the Southwest Conference.

Baylor accomplished this season’s feat by going 4-0 against top-10 teams. That’s thanks in large part to junior guard Jared Butler, who is averaging 17.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game. He, MaCio Teague and Davion Mitchell will look to lead the Bears to one of their most successful conference slates ever.

That said, look for usual suspects Kansas (19-8, 12-6 Big 12) and West Virginia (18-8, 11-6 Big 12) to stand in their way — not to mention talented teams such as Oklahoma and Texas.

Here is the complete breakdown of the 2021 Big 12 Tournament, from brackets to TV information and schedules:
