How many Big 12 teams will be selected for the NCAA tournament?

I think it is solidly five right now with Baylor still having some more work to do. They took a big step Saturday by beating Kansas, and they have another chance to add another win over a ranked team if they can beat Oklahoma State. This is what I would call for Baylor an opportunity week. Rather than playing teams in the bottom of the conference, they've already gotten a chance to knock off one of the top teams in the country in Kansas with one or two more top teams standing in their way in order for them to get to the Big 12 final. I think a win over the Cowboys would certainly strengthen their rèsumè.
