Pregame for KSU Baylor

Posted on Updated on

This Tuesday, K-State will welcome their second consecutive undefeated, top 10 opponent into Bramlage Coliseum, also known as the Octagon of Doom. The Baylor Bears are the countries 4th ranked team and are led by All American candidate Perry Jones III. They have won all of their games but have had many closes calls, most notably against BYU, Mississippi State and West Virginia. I expect a physical, grind it out type of game here. Let’s take a look at how these teams match up

Backcourt: Pierre Jackson is a young guard who leads this Baylor backcourt. Kansas State is led by Will Spradling and Rodney McGruder. K-State’s experience gives them a slight edge in this one.
Advantage: Kansas State

Frontcourt: Baylor, as mentioned before, is led by All-American candidate Perry Jones III. Two other big men that Baylor heavily relies on are Quincy Acy and McDonalds All American Quincy Miller. Even though the Wildcats have some big bodies to throw at them, Baylor gets a huge edge here.
Advantage: Baylor

Bench: K-State gets a small edge here due to their incredible depth.
Advantage: K-State

Coaching/Intangibles: Baylor is undefeated and wants to stay that way. Plus coach Scott Drew is a pretty good coach. However, Frank Martin and the Cats will want to prove last Saturday’s win against Missouri was no fluke.

Advantage: Even

Prediction: Baylor has had many close calls on the road this year, but they haven’t played in a venue like they will Tuesday night. Expect a rocking Bramlage Coliseum to help lead K-State to knock off another top 10 team

K-State 76 Baylor 68
