Big XII B-Ball Championship to KC

The Big 12 Conference's board of directors approved proposals Thursday to hold its basketball title game in Kansas City's Sprint Center beginning with the 2009-10 season.  This is great news for KU, for whom this will basically be a home game. At its annual spring meeting, the board also approved a proposal to move the men's basketball championship game from Sunday to Saturday, beginning with the 2008-09 season.  The switch will give the NCAA men's selection committee more time to evaluate Big 12 teams.
