Big 12 Men's Basketball Championship
The Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship will once again take over Kansas City on March 13-16, 2013. The event has been played in Kansas City 11 times since the league began competition in 1996-97 - more than any other city in the Conference. The next four years will make it seven consecutive seasons that the Big 12 postseason championship has been held at Sprint Center. Prior to the current string, it also took place there in 2008 (just five months after the building opened). It was also held in Kansas City at Kemper Arena from 1997-2002 and in 2005.
