It’s a key Big 12 showdown in Ames on Saturday afternoon.
The Baylor Bears travel to Iowa to take on the Iowa State Cyclones.
This is the second meeting between the two teams. The Bears won the first match up 65-63.
The Baylor Bears are in the middle of one of the best seasons in school history, but as of late they have showed some flaws.
They come into this game with a 23-5 record and sit in 2nd place in the Big 12 conference. To win a share of the title they need to win out and the Kansas Jayhawks need to lose out.
The Bears have not been as dominant as of late. They have lost two of their last three games. In their last game against the Sooners, they did win but the struggled most of the game making shots and if it wasn’t for a late run would have been coming into this game on a three game losing streak.
The Baylor Bears strength is on the defensive side of the ball. They only give up 62.4 points per game and opponents only shoot 32.4 percent from the field.
The Bears are led by Junior Forward Jonathan Motley on both sides of the floor.
He averages 16.9 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game. He also blocks just over one shot a game. He is a force inside on the defensive side of the ball.
Iowa State Cyclones
After a slow start for their standards, the Iowa State Cyclones have been playing much better basketball as of late.
The Iowa State Cyclones come into this game with an 18-9 record and sit tied with Baylor for second place in the Big 12. A win over them in this game would give them a big boost and improve their seed come Big 12 and NCAA Tournament time.
The Cyclones come into this game having won four of the last games. In their last game they beat Texas Tech in overtime by a score of 82-80.
The Cyclones are led by Senior guard Monte Morris.
He is averaging 16.3 points, 6 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game. For the Cyclones to win this game he needs to have a big game and control Baylor’s guards on the defensive side of the ball.
