The Big 12 announced earlier this afternoon that the tonight's semifinal game between Texas and Kansas was canceled due to a positive covid test within the Kansas program. As a result of the cancellation, Texas will move on to the championship game, where they will play the winner of Oklahoma State and Baylor. The Longhorns will advance to their first championship game since 2011. 

Kansas has released the following statement regarding the cancellation:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Due to a positive COVID-19 test this morning within the Kansas men’s basketball team, the Jayhawks have withdrawn from the 2021 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship.

Kansas will remain in Kansas City in preparation for the NCAA Tournament following the health and safety protocols set by Kansas Team Health. The team will continue to be tested daily per NCAA guidelines.

“Obviously we are disappointed and our players are disappointed that they can’t continue to compete for the Big 12 championship,” head coach Bill Self said. “While we have been fortunate to avoid this throughout the season, there are daily risks with this virus that everybody participating is trying to avoid. We have followed the daily testing and additional protocols that have been setup for us, unfortunately we caught a bad break at the wrong time. I look forward to preparing my team in probably a unique way for next week’s NCAA Tournament.”
