This is the Baylor Bears team that most expected to see this year as they are leading the No. 1 seed Kansas Jayhawks 43-35 at the half. Baylor's defense is doing a great job so far by holding Kansas to 42 percent shooting and has held Kansas' leading scorer Tyshawn Taylor who averages 17 points a game to only seven at the half.
Baylor's scoring attack has been balanced Friday night with Perry Jones III and Quincy Miller leading the way with 10 points each. The three-point shot is falling for Baylor as they have made 5-of-12 compared to Kansas who has only made one, and that is another reason why Baylor is leading Kansas at the half.
The odds are good that Baylor will win tonight as they are 22-1 this season when leading at halftime.
