What to Know

We've got another exciting Big 12 matchup on schedule as the Baylor Bears and the BYU Cougars are set to tip at 9:00 p.m. ET on February 20th at Marriott Center. Keep an eye on the score for this one: the two teams posted some lofty point totals in their previous games.

Last Saturday, the Bears beat the Mountaineers 94-81. The win made it back-to-back wins for Baylor.

Baylor got their win on the backs of several key players, but it was RayJ Dennis out in front who scored 18 points along with eight assists. Jayden Nunn was another key contributor, scoring 20 points.

Meanwhile, the point spread may have favored BYU last Saturday, but the final result did not. They fell 93-83 to the Cowboys. BYU found out winning isn't easy when your three-point shooting is a whole 27.1% worse than the opposition.

BYU's defeat came about despite a quality game from Fousseyni Traore, who scored 17 points. Traore didn't help BYU's cause all that much against the Knights on Tuesday but the same can't be said for this matchup. The team also got some help courtesy of Jaxson Robinson, who scored 14 points.

The Bears have been performing well recently as they've won five of their last six games, which provided a nice bump to their 19-6 record this season. As for the Cougars, their defeat dropped their record down to 18-7.

Fans should be in for an exciting game on Tuesday as both teams are among the highest scoring teams in the league right now. Baylor hasn't had any problem running up the score this season, having averaged 83 points per game. However, it's not like BYU struggles in that department as they've been averaging 83.4 points per game. With both teams so easily able to put up points, the only question left is who can run the score up higher.
