Kansas State vs Baylor Preview
Last Saturday, both Kansas State and Baylor played games against their rivals from the Big 12 Conference. The Wildcats played against the West Virginia Mountaineers, while the Bears went toe to toe with the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
As expected, Baylor beat Oklahoma State pretty comfortably and Kansas State lost to the 11-point favorite West Virginia.
Once again, Baylor is the favorite, Kansas State is the underdog. Everyone seems to agree that the Bears are going to win, but can they win another game by double digits? They did it against 12 teams already this season.
Baylor Looking for Another Dominant Win
It’s not surprising that Baylor is ranked #2 in the NCAA basketball. This team is still without a loss this season, with 14 straight wins. They’re the best scoring offense in the league, with most three-pointers scored of all the teams in the Big 12.
This season, the Bears have been merciless against their opponents, winning 13 games by 10 points or more. In fact, the only two games in which they didn’t win by 10+ points are those against ranked teams, namely, Texas Tech and Kansas. In both of those games, Baylor won by 8 points.
When it comes to the games they won by double digits in the 2020-21 season, one of those was the Kansas State vs Baylor game. Played on December 19, 2020, the game saw the Bears demolishing the Wildcats 100-69.
Kansas State Desperate to End Their 6-Game Losing Streak
The Wildcats have lost their previous six games, five of which saw them losing by double digits. This includes the game they played last Saturday, when West Virginia beat them 69-47.
They’ve been equally bad in the offense and defense. Kansas State is the worst team in the Big 12 Conference when points per game are concerned, with 62.4 points on average. They’re also the worst team defense-wise, with 74.8 points conceded per game.
Unfortunately for them, they’re now taking on the team that excels in both of those categories. Baylor is the best Big 12 team both when it comes to scoring and when it comes to defending.
