UPDATE 12:53 p.m.: Tristan Clark is not warming up with the team and it appears he won’t play, and Mark Vital is in the starting lineup.
Junior guard Mark Vital and forward Tristan Clark are in danger of missing the Baylor Bears’ final regular season game of the season on the road against the West Virginia Mountaineers on Saturday. Both are listed as questionable with knee injuries.
Vital started 22 games this season and is averaging six points and six rebounds per game and a team-high 1.8 steals per game. Clark played in 22 games this season and averages four points and 2.4 rebounds per game.
Both players sat out of Monday night’s overtime win over Texas Tech. Devonte Bandoo led all scorers with 18 points for Baylor. The Bears matched up with West Virginia on Feb. 15, and Baylor pulled off a 70-59 victory. Vital went for five points, and Clark added two off the bench.
Baylor is a one-point road underdog against West Virginia at DraftKings Sportsbook, which is coming in at 13-2 straight up at home this season including 9-6 against the spread. Baylor has done well against the number this year especially on the road where the Bears covered in seven of nine games away from home.
