Friday college hoops has a big time BIG 12 showdown in the works between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and Baylor Bears. Red hot Oklahoma State (17-6, 10-6 BIG12) will make the trip into Missouri to take on Baylor (19-1, 11-1 BIG 12) in the conference semifinals. These two teams have both tournament quality teams and have been tested all year as they’ve been competing in the stacked BIG 12 conference.
These two opponents met barely over a week ago on March 4th as Baylor prevailed 81-70 on their home court. It was the second time the Bears beat the Cowboys by a double digit margin. Baylor held an 11 point lead at half and held onto it the rest of the way.
Jared Butler led the Bears with 22 points to go along with 5 assists and Matthew Mayer chipped in with 19 points while grabbing 7 rebounds. Future top 5 pick Cade Cunningham missed the first matchup but made sure to make his presence felt in this one. The BIG12 player and freshman of the year dropped 24 points along with 7 rebounds and 4 assists.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
Oklahoma State has won 7 of their last 8 games with that only loss come coming to Baylor. It was the second time they were handed a double digit loss by the Bears and I’m sure that will be in their minds when they face off again on Friday.
Cunningham averages a team-high 19.5 points per game, while also getting to the boards for 6.3 rebounds per game. The all-around talent displayed by Cade Cunningham has already gotten the attention of NBA teams, but a standout performance against Baylor could seal his place in the top five of the draft.
Baylor avoided an upset with a 74-68 victory over Kansas State on Thursday night to advance to the semifinal round. MaCio Teague finished with 24 points while Davion Mitchell chipped in 23 points for the Bears, who never led by more than 12 points on the night.
The Bears are ranked #2 nationally and appear to be a lock for a #1 seed this upcoming NCAA tournament. Regardless, I’m sure Scott Drew doesn’t want his team looking ahead and would prefer they handle the business in front of them which is a very hot and talented Oklahoma State team.
Jared Butler is averaging a team-high 16.4 points and 4.9 assists this season, displaying excellent leadership on the court. As they prepare to host the Oklahoma State Cowboys, the Bears will once again lean on their star Jared Butler for a boost in the right direction.

Free Oklahoma State Cowboys vs. Baylor Bears NCAAB Prediction:
Baylor swept the regular-season series against the Cowboys, winning both games by double-digits. However, Oklahoma State comes into this matchup playing its best basketball of the season. Cade Cunningham has turned Oklahoma State into one of the nation’s most exciting teams and a win over Baylor would send this team into full on dark horse mode for the NCAA Championship. Meanwhile, Baylor didn’t exactly look to be in top form against Kansas State, barely squeaking out a win in a game where they were favored by 20 points. Take Oklahoma State to cover the spread in this Big 12 battle on Friday.
