Baylor Bears

The Bears only lost two of their first 16 games (to Michigan State and Duke) but it’s been a sketchy ride since then. Baylor is 5-6 in their last 11 with losses to Kansas State, Texas TCU, BYU and Houston alongside wins over UCF, Iowa State, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and West Virginia.

In their matchup Saturday versus a tough Houston team, the Bears fell just short. Baylor came back from a 41-25 halftime deficit to force OT but ultimately fell 82-76 after the extra period. Top scorer Ja’Kobe Walter put up 23 points with four rebounds in the losing effort.

TCU Horned Frogs

Over on the Frogs’ side, their year kicked off on a 13-5 run before consecutive wins over Oklahoma State, Baylor and Texas Tech. TCU is 3-3 since then with losses to Texas, Iowa State and Texas Tech alongside wins over West Virginia, Kansas State and Cincinnati.

Matched up against Cincinnati on Saturday, the Frogs came out of the break with a 39-32 advantage. TCU kept it up from there on a 36-25 run and powered out the victory 75-57. Both Emanuel Miller (six rebounds; six assists) and JaKobe Coles (bench) scored a team-high 18 points.


I’m going to try TCU here. You could argue this one either way, though. The Frogs didn’t have a ton of issues versus Cincinnati in their last game, notching 44.8 percent shooting with 33 rebounds, 18 assists and 11 steals on the way to the win. TCU has now scored 75 or more points in four straight games—a 3-1 run.

Back on January 27 when these teams last met, TCU pulled off a wild 105-102 triple-overtime victory on the road. The Frogs shot a nice 52.6 percent from the field in that one but also got out-rebounded 44-37 and coughed up 13 turnovers (Baylor had 17). This rematch should be a pretty epic game as well, and I like TCU to pull it off at home. Should be a great one to watch regardless.
