What to Know

The Nicholls State Colonels have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will square off against the #8 Baylor Bears at noon ET Monday at Ferrell Center. After both teams made easy work of their previous opponents, one of them is set up to suffer a discouraging change of fortune.

The Colonels simply couldn't be stopped this past Saturday, as they easily beat the Carver Bible College Cougars at home 101-44.

Meanwhile, if there were any doubts why Baylor was a heavy favorite Friday, the squad quickly laid those doubts to rest. They made easy work of the Incarnate Word Cardinals this past Friday and carried off an 87-60 win. Five players on Baylor scored in the double digits: Matthew Mayer (14), LJ Cryer (13), Kendall Brown (13), James Akinjo (10), and Jeremy Sochan (10).

Their wins bumped Nicholls State to 3-0 and Baylor to 1-0. Both Nicholls State and the Bears have easy wins in recent memory. We'll see which one's ego takes a hit when they face off.
