Baylor was a big surprise early but has faded late. They are just looking to go into the conference and NCAA tournaments with some momentum. A road win would be helpful.
This season was a disaster for the Longhorns. They have not had 20 or more losses since the 1983-84 season in the old Southwest Conference. They are looking for anything positive in their final regular season game.
The Bears were the hottest team in the conference before conference play but they kind of found a more believable value once B12 play started. They are tied for third, much more like what we expected.
All season long Jonathan Motley has been a beast for the Bears. He is averaging thisclose to a double-double and has had some monster games. In a normal year he would definitely be in the running for POY.
Jo Lual-Acuil makes sure that he is not alone in the paint for the Bears. The freshman from Australia is a player and you can see that by the time he is an upper classman he can be really good. He is getting a lot more playing time now.
As good as those two are the fate of the Bears will probably be in the hands of Manu Lecomte. The transfer PG has been brilliant but also inconsistent. He is dealing with an injury and might sit for this one.
Last year Shaka Smart was able to get the Longhorns into the tournament but there is no way that is going to happen this season. I like Smart a lot but I kind of wonder whether it will work at Texas for him
He has brought in talent, case in point Jarrett Allen who is destined for the NBA…maybe this spring. He has put up some OK numbers but has not dominated. He kind of has a sleepy game, Smart has not brought his intensity out so maybe it isn’t there.
At VCU Smart always had great guards. Maybe not future pros but guys who could handle the ball and play excellent defense. They set the tone for the Rams and he always had a few. This year he does not even have one at Texas.
Texas should be pumped for this one, a chance to earn some respect at home. They have lost six in a row though so they might not have the will to do it.

Free Baylor Bears vs. Texas Longhorns NCAAB Prediction:
Baylor is the better team for sure but I would not make any bets on this one unless you know about Lecomte. If they are resting him they might not be coming into this one fired up for a win.
At the same time they are good enough to beat this Texas team whether he is on the floor or not. They have advantages all over the floor…just be careful.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Texas ATS
This game could be a pass due to the injury. Have some fun with conference tournaments instead.
