After running through the Ivy League this season, the Yale Bulldogs look to pull off an upset in the second round as they get set to take on the Baylor Bears.
Baylor earned an at large with their stellar season in the Big 12, and nearly took down Kansas in the Big 12 tourney.
The Bulldogs route to the Ivy League title came down to them and Princeton. The lone loss in conference play did come to Princeton one time, but 5 straight wins to close out the season capped off a phenomenal regular season.
Yale was by far one of the best defensive teams in the nation. The Bulldogs finished the season by allowing just 63.1 points per game. That ranked 12th in the nation and they really showed off how good they were in their season finale by allowing just 55 points against Columbia.
Yale will look to Makai Mason to be the answer here. The Sophomore finished the season with an average of 15.8 points per game to go along with 3.7 assists (both led the team).
Overall on the season the Bulldogs have averaged 47.1% shooting from the floor.
Baylor finished 5th in the regular season in the Big 12 and started things off in the conference tourney with a very impressive win over the Texas Longhorns.
Then they ran into the #1 Kansas Jayhawks and gave them all they could handle, but eventually fell 70-66.
Although Baylor limps into the NCAA Tournament losers in 3 of their last 4, they still had quite the impressive season as they built many quality wins in what could arguably said as the toughest conference in basketball.
Baylor will look to really turn this one into a track meet. The Bears averaged 77.2 points per game, but this team likes to get out and push offensively and really turn the tempo up defensively. That in turn leads to many turnovers being forced.
CBB Betting Trends:
The Bulldogs have a lot of potential in this one. The key for them will be slowing the game down. They score a lot, but getting into a track meet with any Big 12 team is not a good idea.
Working the ball around and wearing the Bears defense down will certainly take them out of their rhythm here.
