The Big 12 may be small in number but it’s big with regard to wins over ranked opponents

The Big 12 is doing more with less.

The men’s basketball programs in the 10-team league have already collected 23 wins over nationally ranked schools this season.

For comparison sake, the 10-team American Conference has a total of 7 wins vs. ranked foes in 2013-14 and the 10-team Big East Conference has 5. The Big Ten and Pac-12 Conferences – with 12 schools each – have recorded 17 and 10 wins against rated teams, while the 14-team SEC has 7 such wins and the 15-team ACC has 13 wins over ranked schools

Ten teams nation-wide have at least 3 victories over rated opponents this winter and 5 of them – Kansas, Iowa State, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas State – reside in the Big 12.

The Big 12 may have just 10 members, but their signature wins lead its college basketball peers by a large margin.
