Current Records: Kansas State 10-8; Baylor 17-2

What to Know

The Kansas State Wildcats have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the #4 Baylor Bears and are hoping to record their first win since March 2 of 2019. K-State and the Bears will face off in a Big 12 battle at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Ferrell Center. Baylor should still be feeling good after a victory, while K-State will be looking to regain their footing.

It was close but no cigar for K-State as they fell 78-75 to the Kansas Jayhawks this past Saturday. Guard Nijel Pack did his best for K-State, finishing with 35 points (a whopping 47% of their total).

Meanwhile, Baylor strolled past the Oklahoma Sooners with points to spare this past Saturday, taking the game 65-51. Four players on the Bears scored in the double digits: guard Adam Flagler (16), guard LJ Cryer (14), guard Matthew Mayer (12), and guard Kendall Brown (10).

The Wildcats have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 14 point spread they are up against. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 7-2 against the spread when expected to lose.

K-State was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap when the two teams previously met in March of last year as they fell 74-68 to Baylor. The defeat knocked K-State out of the playoffs, so expect them to come at Baylor with a vengeful fire.
