Where and When is the 2023 Big 12 Basketball Tournament?

Each March, teams like the Kansas Jayhawks, Baylor Bears, Texas Longhorns, and the rest of their conference brethren gather to battle for the Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship. This conference has become one of the premier leagues in the country, with Baylor and Kansas both recently winning the NCAA Championship. The 2022-2023 college basketball season tips off in less than two months, and before we know it, conference tournaments will be contested and championships will be decided. 

Where is the 2023 Big 12 Basketball Tournament?

The 2023 Big 12 Basketball Tournament will again be held in Kansas City, Missouri, at the T-Mobile Center. This location has been the official host of the conference tournament since 2010, and it has been kind to the Jayhawks, with Kansas winning six crowns during that span. Before being hosted in Kansas City exclusively, the tournament rotated between Oklahoma City, Kansas City, and Dallas. The coming season is expected to be another strong one for the conference, with Kansas, Baylor, Texas, TCU, and Texas Tech all expected to begin the season in the Top 25. The Jayhawks and Bears will likely be the favorites to win the league and contend for another national title. Still, Texas is exceptionally talented and should push for a breakthrough campaign under Chris Beard.
