I have the fondest memories of being a kid sitting with my big brothers watching every game of the Big 8 tournament. We'd sit in the crowd at Kemper Arena and stuff ourselves with Dove ice cream bars and popcorn, while dreaming of playing college basketball. When the Big 8 became the Big 12, the tournament started changing locations every year, and the lore of the conference tournament seemed a bit tainted.
Finally, the Big 12 Championship (Tournament) has come back to Kansas City.
As Kemper became older and more outdated, Kansas City became a less frequent host. But this year, with the new Sprint Center, the Championship is back in it's rightful place... KC. And with the Women's tournament being played half a mile away at Municipal Auditorium, it makes for an electric week of College hoops. I can't wait to go cover the games on Saturday, and feel like a kid again.
