Letter from A.D. John Currie - March 14

Good Afternoon Wildcat Nation,

I would like to start today by making a few comments regarding this week's Phillips 66 Big 12 Championships in Kansas City. Big 12 fans should be commended as the atmosphere and crowds at the Sprint Center supporting the best conference in America were incredible! And the nation has taken notice - check out Dennis Dodd's story from CBSSports.com on the strength of our league. I couldn't imagine any other conference having more competitive and thrilling quarterfinal games than we did on Thursday. Our game against Iowa State was played at an extremely high level and it was exciting to see freshmen Marcus Foster and Nigel Johnson, as well as senior Shane Southwell, all have big games.

While we all would have loved to remain in Kansas City for the duration of the conference tournament, we are excited about the prospects of playing in the NCAA tournament. Stay tuned on Sunday as the official NCAA field will be announced on CBS.
