By  | 

Irving, Texas - The University of Kansas has won the 2006-07 Big 12 men's basketball regular season title. It marks the seventh overall crown for the Jayhawks, and third in a row after sharing the last two titles.

KU finished 14-2 in league play. The Jayhawks will be the No. 1 seed in the Phillips 66 Big 12 Men's Basketball Championship, the fourth time it has been the top seed. The Championship is scheduled to be played on March 8-11 at the Ford Center in Oklahoma City.

Texas A&M (13-3), Texas (12-4) and Kansas State (10-6) earned the other three first-round byes in the championship. The Aggies and Longhorns earn byes for the second consecutive year, while K-State recorded its first bye and highest finish in Big 12 history.

Oklahoma State and Nebraska will face off in a make-up game on Monday, March 5, but the result will not cause any change in the seedings. All seeds were determined using league tie-breaking procedures.

The entire Phillips 66 Big 12 Men's Basketball Championship will be televised either regionally or nationally by CW-BCS (Suddenlink Ch. 8), ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU.
