The No. 4 seed Baylor Bears is taking on the No. 1 seed Kansas Jayhawks in the semifinal round of the Big 12 tournament. Baylor has lost both games against Kansas this year and neither game has been close with Baylor losing by double digits each time.
The bright side for Baylor is that they played one of their best games of the year today when they defeated Kansas State 82-74 and Perry Jones III had 31 points and 11 rebounds in the win.
During the post game press conference Jones talked about what they need to get past Kansas:
Defend. Defend and rebound. They're a great offensive and defensive team. They rebound really well. We've got to be able to rebound and get a lot of stops, as many stops as possible, because they can get on runs and it can get ugly. So just play defense.
Date / Time: Friday, March 9, 6:30 p.m. CT
Location: Sprint Center, Kansas City, Mo.
Radio: Bears Radio Network
Line: Baylor (+5.5)
