Saturday college hoops has an inner conference 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 south into the state of Texas to take on highly ranked Baylor (19-1, 11-1 BIG 12). 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 over a month ago on January 23rd in Stillwater with Baylor prevailing 81-66. Oklahoma State held a 4 point lead at halftime but were dominated in the second half as Baylor snapped back into their regular form and outscored the Cowboys 49-30. Potential future lottery pick Cade Cunningham missed the game due to COVID protocols,
Jared Butler led the Bears with 22 points to go along with 6 assists and Mark Vital chipped in with 19 points while grabbing 5 rebounds. Kalib Boone was the lead man for the Cowboys with 21 points and 7 rebounds while Matthew Alexander Moncrieffe posted a 13 point 10 rebound double double.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
After taking down their in-state rivals in consecutive games, the Oklahoma State Cowboys bring an impressive five-game win streak into Thursday’s heavyweight battle. The Cowboys are scoring just under 77 points per game while holding their opponents to 71.
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.
After a wild finish on the road, the Baylor Bears outlasted the West Virginia Mountaineers in a 94-89 overtime victory. The Bears put more space between them and the rest of the Big 12 with this win, increasing their lead to two-and-a-half games.
The Bears outplayed a very strong West Virginia defense, showcasing why they are considered one of the top offenses in the NCAA. The Bears will be tested once again on Thursday, as the Oklahoma State Cowboys represent the hottest team in the conference.
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 has played like an absolute force all year long and are a lock to win the BIG12 conference after only dropping 1 game to this point. However, their last 3 games have all been close including their first loss to lose their unbeaten mark. Oklahoma State is streaking right now and enters this matchup on a 5 game win streak including 2 wins against an in state rival and highly ranked Oklahoma Sooner team.
I expect this matchup to be much closer than their previous back in January especially with the addition of future lottery pick Cade Cunningham who missed the last meeting due to COVID protocols. The spread isn’t out quite yet but I’ll take Baylor to grab the win in a close one and continue their unbeaten streak on their home court.
