On Saturday in Manhattan, No. 22 Kansas State ended No. 6 Missouri's perfect season.

Tuesday night, No. 5 Baylor brings their 15-0 record to the Fred Bramlage Coliseum hoping to avoid the same fate.

The game will be the toughest road test of the season for the Bears, who have played both of their Big 12 games at home and whose toughest non-conference road games were at unranked BYU and Northwestern.

The Wildcats 7'0 245 center Jordan Henriquez will provide a challenge for Baylor's NBA-caliber front-line of Quincy Acy and Perry Jones III, as they will take turns defending the bigger Henriquez at the bottom of Baylor's 1-3-1 zone.

The Bears guards will need to mark Kansas State sophomore Will Spradling, a zone buster shooting 44.3% from beyond the arc this season.

Baylor, meanwhile, will try to keep their balanced scoring attack, with five different players averaging over 10 points a game, rolling at one of the toughest places to play in the Big 12.

The 7:00 PM game will be broadcast regionally on Fox Sports Southwest.
