Baylor has won and covered six games in a row. For the first three games of the streak — at Oklahoma State, vs. Texas Tech, at West Virginia — the Bears were underdogs and won outright. They covered modest numbers at home against Alabama and TCU and won outright as 5.5-point dogs at Oklahoma.
The last two, at Oklahoma and then vs. TCU, have come by a combined 56 points. The senior transfer Makai Mason, formerly of Yale, went bonkers against TCU with a career-high 40 on 9-for-12 from three-point range.
Mason is joined by Devonte Bandoo and King McClure, who each make 39 percent of their threes. Combined, they take about 14 threes per game; each one is between 39 and 40 percent on the season.
On the season, including conference play, Baylor shoots 33.5 percent from three, which is outside of the top 200, nationally. If you look at just what the Bears have done in the conference, though, you see something much different: over 40 percent and tops in the Big-12.
This will be the first of two matchups this month between these two teams, who will meet again on the 27th.
Going into the conference schedule, I though Texas had a chance to make some noise. It returns just about everybody, minus Mo Bamba, from a team that lost a close game to Nevada in the NCAA Tournament.
Things started exceptionally well with a blowout win on the road against Kansas State and then a win over West Virginia. Then things got off track. The Longhorns lost two one-possession road games at Oklahoma State and Kansas with another narrow loss to Texas Tech in-between.
Since, they have won at home (vs. OU, KU) and lost on the road (@TCU, @UGA, @ISU). There’s still plenty of talent there for an NCAA run but there’s no guarantee UT will get there if it can’t at least finish in the top four or five in the conference.
