The big winners Saturday from the Big 12 Tournament were Iowa State and the people who performed the national anthem.
Kansas School for the Deaf students did a really great job as they signed the anthem. The Big 12 donated a large sum of money to have the school’s gym refurbished, as The Star’s Blair Kerkhoff reported last October, and that was highlighted ahead of the league's tournament championship at Sprint Center.
Here is the video from NCAA March Madness of the students performing the anthem before Iowa State’s 80-74 win over West Virginia:
