The Big 12 was the No. 1 conference in overall RPI, strength of schedule, non-conference RPI and non-conference strength of schedule during the regular season.  Seven teams were in the top 47 - the most of any conference.

Seven Big 12 teams (out of 10) that were ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 this season.  Despite having just 10 teams, the Big 12 has had more total teams nationally-ranked this year than any other conference.

Nine Big 12 schools ranked among the top 73 of the ESPN Basketball Power Index (BPI) at the conclusion of the regular season.  Nine teams were in the top 71 of the Sagarin ratings, which also ranked the Big 12 as the No. 1 conference. 

Big 12 teams combined to defeat a total of 44 AP top 25 opponents this season, the most in conference history and the most in the nation.
