In their second game in two days in Las Vegas, the No. 6 Baylor Bears play the West Virginia Mountaineers Friday.
Baylor defeated St. Mary's 72-59 on Thursday night behind a balanced scoring attack that featured four different starters -- guard Brady Heislip, forwards Quincy Acy, Quincy Miller and Perry Jones III -- in double digits.
They are now 11-0 and one of the few remaining undefeated teams in college basketball. However, they have yet to play a nationally ranked opponent, which will change next week when they face No. 17 Mississippi State in Dallas.
Under head coach Bob Huggins, West Virginia has become a Big East power, making four straight NCAA Tournaments as well as the 2010 Final Four.
The Mountaineers are led by a talented trio of upperclassmen, seniors Kevin Jones, Darryl "Truck" Bryant and junior Deniz Kilicli, all of whom score in double digits.
West Virginia, at 9-2, is unranked because they lack a signature non-conference victory, and a victory over the Bears would be a huge boost for their NCAA Tournament resume.
The 8:00 PM game will be televised nationally on ESPN2.
