The B12 is loaded this season. These two teams are not the favourites but I think they are capable of making a push and this is where it starts.
Both of these teams have looked really good at times and have obvious strengths. The Bears own the board and Texas can make you really uncomfortable.
The B12 regular season may be the providence of Kansas but when it comes to they are not as dominant. Baylor has played in two of the last four title games.
I think the Bears are probably in the field but they did not do themselves any favours down the stretch. They won just four of their final ten but they did win at Texas.
The key for Baylor is dominating up front. Texas has size but with Rico Gathers and Jonathan Motley the Bears frontline is pretty darn good. Motley has really come on as the season progressed and Gathers is always a beast.
I didn’t even mention Taurean Prince, the Beard leading scorer and jack of all trades. He has gotten better every season he has been in Waco.
Al Freeman may be the second leading scorer on the team but the Bears are still never sure how much they are going to get from their backcourt from game to game. They lack the steadiness they have had there in the past.
Baylor has shown an ability to get hot this time of year so they can’t be discounted.
I really thought that HAVOC was going to take the B12 by storm this season but that has not been the case. Still I like Texas to be included on Selection Sunday.
Texas is an interesting team. At their best they truly can compete with the best team in the country but they have struggled to reach that level consistently.
I think part of the problem is that their best player, Isaiah Taylor, struggles with just that. He is not a good shooter and is way to selfish.
Their best bet is to try and play inside out. Prince Ibeh is emerging and they are going to need him o match Baylor anyway. Might as well use the big fella.
The Flashes will look to control the paint as this has been a very inside dominant team. They did find their range against the Broncos as they hit 13 of 26 threes.

Free Baylor Bears vs. Texas Longhorns CBB Prediction:
These teams should be hungry for a win and are good matches for each other. Man the B12 is tough in the middle this season.
I always tend to like Baylor more than I should and I am going to be guilty of that again here. They are just steadier.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: OVER the total.
It would be a shame for whoever loses to not be included next week.
