Baylor at Kansas Game Preview

Why Baylor Will Win

Baylor has been terrific over the last month. It lost at Texas in a decent battle a few weeks ago, but that’s the only blip in a 10-1 run including a strong 75-69 win over Kansas.

How do you beat Kansas? You move the ball around. The team is 5-3 when teams come up with 13 or more assists – and 0-2 when allowing 18 or more – and 13-0 when teams come up with ten or fewer.

Baylor will go on its share of runs, but Kansas will be just a wee bit better on the boards with the defensive intensity coming through late. Baylor will keep this alive in the last few minutes with free throws, but it won’t be enough.

Kansas is 17-1 when scoring at least 70 points, so …
