Baylor has been in a little funk heading into the Big 12 tournament losing three of their last four contests, and one of those losses was at home to West Virginia. In that span they have only shot 42.2% from the field.
Even though they’ve been in a funk recently, Baylor owns the 65th most efficient offense in the nation. The defense has been even better ranking 16th overall in efficiency. They are also the proud owners of the 11th rated strength of schedule.
Baylor is led by Seniors of opposite statures, 5’11” Manu Lecomte and 7’0” Jo Lual-Acuil Jr. Lecomte is averaging 15.7 PPG and 3.6 APG, while Lual-Acuil Jr. is averaging 14.4 PPG and 8.8 RPG.
This is a Senior-laden squad that is lengthy and plays stout defense. If they get productive play from their guards then they have a chance to make a deep run.
West Virginia Mountaineers
West Virginia was ousted by Texas in their last contest 79-87, while they only shot 42% from the field. The Mountaineers will be looking to get the three-sweep of Baylor and advance in the tourney.
They own one of the best offenses in the nation ranking 14th in efficiency. Their press defense has also been effective ranking 39th overall. Like Baylor, West Virginia has been battle-tested with the 30th toughest schedule.
West Virginia is led by Senior Guards Jevon Carter and Daxter Miles Jr. Carter is averaging 17.0 PPG and 6.5 APG, while Miles Jr. is averaging 12.1 PPG and 3.3 APG.
Although West Virginia is coming off a loss, they won three consecutive quality matchups before catching Texas on their Senior Night. Look for a nice rebound game against a Baylor team they have owned in recent history.
