NCAA Basketball: Kansas at Kansas State Scott Sewell-USA TODAY Sports

The Big XII Conference has brought big matchups all season long and it will continue when the Baylor Bears travel on the road to face the Kansas State Wildcats on Tuesday.

Baylor Bears (-2, 145.5) vs. Kansas State Wildcats

Baylor has revenge on its mind considering Kansas State won 97-95 in overtime in the first meeting between these teams met on Jan. 7. However, points are likely not going to come easy this time around.

The Wildcats' defense ranks 29th in the nation in points allowed per possession on defense but allows 21.4 points fewer per 100 possessions. They also rank 29th in turnovers forced per possession at home compared to just 132nd while on the road.

Baylor’s offense ranks ninth in the nation in points scored on a per-possession basis but sees that total drop by 12.4 points per 100 possessions when playing on the road.

In the last meeting, Baylor attempted 17 more free throws, which was likely an outlier and will even out considering Kansas State averages more free throws per field goal attempt. The Wildcats rank 33rd in the nation in free throw attempts per free throw attempt ratio while the Bears rank 42nd.

Baylor is coming off of a rough game where it blew a 17-point lead against the Kansas Jayhawks and the Wildcats will make its trip to the state of Kansas one worth forgetting.

The Play: Kansas State +2
