A crucial Big 12 matchup comes to form on Tuesday as the Iowa State Cyclones and Baylor Bears go at it.
Both teams currently sit at 7-5 in the conference, tied for 5th place. Baylor got the upperhand back on 1/6 as they went into Iowa State and knocked them off 94-89.
The Cyclones bounced back from their upset loss to Texas Tech with a very impressive 85-75 win over Texas. Iowa State now looks to make one last push at the top of the Big 12 as they sit 2 games off the pace, with 5 other teams in front of them.
The Cyclones win over Texas was quite the impressive one as the Longhorns have given every team fits in the Big 12 this season.
Iowa State held just a 2 point lead at halftime and bounced back and forth with the Longhorns all of the 2nd half. In the final 3 minutes, the Cyclones got some crucial stops, combined with some easy buckets to pull away.
Iowa State will have to tighten down defensively if they hope to contain the fast paced Baylor Bears offense. Baylor racked up 94 points in the first meeting against them and shot a ridiculous 52.3% from the floor.
The Cyclones bring a 7-5 ATS record into this one away from home.
The Baylor Bears have really started to fall off the tracks a little bit. They’ve dropped 3 of 4 and have fallen into their current 5th place tie with the Cyclones.
Baylor has fallen to Texas, West Virginia, and an absolutely horrible home loss last time out to the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
The Bears trailed by just 1 at the break, but saw Texas Tech outscore them 51-34 in the 2nd half. That was by far Baylor’s worst home performance of the season as they have allowed just 65.1 points against per home game.
Back on 1/9, Baylor came back from 11 points down and put up 60 points in the 2nd half to grab the road victory. Jonathan Motley finished with a career high 27 points to go along with 13 rebounds.
