This Saturday afternoon matchup will see the Arizona Wildcats take on the Baylor Bears.
The Wildcats have easily been one of the best teams this season. Their ranking of 12th does not really reflect how good they have been. Although, they are likely only ranked 12th because they have yet to really get tested. This game against the Bears should change that narrative completely.
Offense is where the Wildcats have excelled to say the least. They are averaging 87.1 points per game. That is pretty remarkable considering most college basketball teams probably score in the 70’s on average. This is the 4th best scoring offense to be fair and their lowest point total in a game was 71.
Not only are they scoring at will, but they are also shooting lights out. The Wildcats shoot an average of 52.8% from the field. This is the 2nd best in the country. They also shoot 42.9% from three, which is 6th best in the country.
Arizona has a variety of scorers, but they are led by Zeke Nnaji. He leads the team with 17.1 points per game. Behind him is Nico Mannion, who scores an average of 15.3 points per game. If these two guys in particular continue to stay hot, anyone that faces Arizona is going to be in for a rough time.
The defensive numbers are not amazing, but they actually do not reflect how good they have been. The Wildcats are allowing just 64.8 points per game. This ranks 105th in the country, but as mentioned, they are much better than this ranking.
Teams also shoot just 38.7% against them from the field, further proving that their defense is legit. The biggest worry for Arizona will be limiting the Bears from deep range. If can do this, they should remain undefeated and pick up a resume building win.
The Bears are another team that has started the season on the right note. They already have a few quality wins too so they have not played only cupcakes. For example, they beat Villanova on a neutral court. Their one loss came to Washington by three points.
So far this season, scoring has not been a huge issue for the Bears. they are averaging 79.9 points per game, which ranks 49th in the country. They shoot the ball at a modest 45.2%, but from three-point range, they shoot 39.6%.
This offense pretty much runs through one man and that is Jared Butler. He leads the team in scoring, assists, field goal percentage and steals. Other than Butler’s 19.4 points per game, Baylor has just one other guys who averages more than 10 points. This is MaCio Teague and he averages 14.9 points per game.
The Baylor defense is also playing extremely well. They are allowing 61.9 points per game. Teams shoot 40.7% against them and 33.8% from deep range.
The Bears have allowed more than 70 points in a game once this season, which came against Villanova in a win. Arizona has a much more potent offense than Villanova, so the key here will be keeping the Wildcats from scoring 80.

Free Arizona Wildcats vs. Baylor Bears NCAAB Prediction:
The Wildcats are shooting an unreal percentage from both the field and the three-point line. I think they will continue to stay hot and therefore, I like the Wildcats to win on the road and cover the spread.
