What you need to know about Baylor
The Bears got past the Iowa State Cyclones on a jump shot courtesy of Jayden Nunn with 2 seconds left in the second half on Saturday. Jalen Bridges scored 14 points to go along with three steals while Nunn had 16 points and two steals in the victory. Rayj Dennis also had 18 points and seven rebounds.
Dennis is a transfer who previously played at Boise State and Toledo and the fifth-year senior is averaging 13.9 points and 6.4 assists per game this season. He’s also shooting a career-best 39.1% from the 3-point line and he’s likely to loom large in Tuesday’s contest.
What you need to know about Texas Tech
Meanwhile, the point spread may have favored Texas Tech last Saturday, but the final result did not. The Red Raiders fell just short of the Cincinnati Bearcats by a score of 75-72 despite being 4.5-point home favorites. Robert Jennings scored 14 points and grabbed six rebounds off the bench in the defeat.
Meanwhile, Pop Isaacs scored 22 points and is averaging 17.6 points, 3.5 assists and 3.0 rebounds during his second season with the Red Raiders. However, Isaacs did only go 5-for-19 from the floor in the loss and he’ll need to have a more efficient night offensively for Texas Tech to pull off the upset.
