Baylor and BYU are very similar teams that are going to put up very similar seasons. We’ve seen the Bears drop to teams like Charleston, Colorado, and Northwestern this year, but we have also seen them go on the road and beat Kentucky. The speed of the team is definitely something that has to be concerning for the Cougs, but in the end, G Pierre Jackson and the gang can really get the job done if need be. BYU is averaging 77.1 points per game as well though, and it has a few monsters in the post. Don’t mess with G Tyler Haws or F Brandon Davies, as these are two of the best players in the entire nation. They are averaging 20.3 and 19.2 points per game respectively. Each of the five starters on this club are averaging over a steal per game, and Davies already has 20 rejections to boot. We think that BYU is going to come on the road and test the Bears, and we’ll get too many points on our side, knowing that Baylor is still living on the back of that win in Lexington.
