"We debated canceling the tournament in deference to the devastating tragedy in Moore but were encouraged by Oklahoma City leaders and the Oklahoma City All-Sports Association to go forward," said Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby. "We believe the tournament can serve as a testament to the strong Oklahoma spirit and to the resiliency of the Oklahoma people."
The Conference was encouraged to proceed with the championship by Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett.
"We are very appreciative of the consideration by the participating teams and the Big 12 Conference," Cornett said. "We encouraged and supported the decision to play the championship in a format comfortable to the Big 12."
