DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A string of underwhelming NCAA tournament performances obscured the fact that the Big 12 was perhaps the best league in the country in 2013-14.
A flurry of moves in the past two months should help keep the Big 12 stocked with talent next season.
Texas recently signed the nation's top remaining recruit in forward Myles Turner. League champion Kansas added point guard Devonte Graham following the departure of Naadir Tharpe last month. Iowa State replaced DeAndre Kane with another one-and-done senior, former UNLV star Bryce Dejean Jones.
It's no coincidence that the Longhorns, Jayhawks and Cyclones will be among the favorites in a conference that should again be loaded in 2014-15.
