The Big 12 is so deep this season and these two teams are symbolic of it. They probably won’t win the league but both could finish as high as second.
The key is going to be defending your home court and getting the occasional road victory. Whichever team succeeds will have an early leg up.
Baylor is on track for another appearance in the tournament. This is not an elite team but when the matchups are in their favour they can really compete.
The key one is guard Manu Lecomte. Last yera he was really running the show but this season he is concentrating more on his offense. He leads the team at 18ppg.
Junior Jake Lindsay has taken over more of the playmaking responsibilitis and leads the team in assist. He is a big guard too so he pares well with Lecomte.
Jo Lual-Acuil is one of the most productiv big men in the country. He ia averaging a double-double and protects the rim.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
The Red Raiders are ranked and have lost just one times this season, to Seton Hall. They are second in the nation in points allowed – 58ppg.
They are not a super slowdown teeam either, they score 81ppg. Senior guard Keenan Evans is having his best season so far putting up 16ppg.
Evans leads a trio of double-digit scoring guards – Jarret Culver and Zhaire Smith. The Red Raiders are very equitable with their minutes.
The Red Raiders do not have a lot of size upfront but they have enough to make sure they are not going to be overwhelmed by the likes of Lual-Acuil.

Free Baylor Bears vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders NCAAB Prediction:
Baylor is the higher ranked team but these two are close. Their bigger advantage is that they are used to having some expectations.
They are kind of built to win in situations like this too with their steady guard play and comfort with their style of play.

I think the Red Raiders will be small home favourites. I am going to side with the visitors in a small upset,. I know that group a lot better.
