Big 12 Tourney: Friday elimination day sees OSU, K-State stay alive


ARLINGTON, Texas — Like ZZ Top’s seminal 1983 album title, today was “Eliminator” Day at the Big 12 Tournament in Arlington.

… or was it in LaGrange? (Inside joke for those of us who know)

In a battle of in-state heated rivals, Kansas State eliminated Kansas with a 7-1 clampdown and Oklahoma State beat down Oklahoma 8-3 to move on to Saturday’s semifinal matchups and send their in-state rivals packing up the busses to head back home.

In terms of won-loss marks, here is how the Big 12 Tournament looks after Friday’s action:
TCU, 2-0
Texas Tech, 2-0
Oklahoma State, 2-1
Kansas State, 2-1
