The Baylor Bears had a five-game winning streak snapped as they fell to the Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday. The Bears will aim to get back to their winning ways on Wednesday when they hit the road to face the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
The Bears (15-4 SU, 5-2 Big 12) were 13th in the rankings heading into their showdown with the top-ranked Sooners, and allowed Oklahoma to shoot 62% from the floor in the 72-82 loss at home. The Bears got 15 points and 10 rebounds from Johnathan Motley off the bench and outrebounded Oklahoma 34-19, but that didn’t matter in the end.
The Cowboys (10-9 SU, 2-5 Big 12) were down by 19 in an 73-89 loss at Kansas State, led by 18 points off the bench from Tyree Griffin. KSU shot 57.7% from the field while OSU shot 41.8%. That is surely a recipe for a loss.
Baylor has won six of their last 10 meetings with Oklahoma State, who had won two in a row in the series before a 62-79 loss on January 5. However, the Cowboys are 7-3 at home so far this season, while the Bears are 2-3 on the road.
