It's no secret that the Baylor Bears have been disappointing so far this year. With big expectations they've lost four straight games and fallen to a conference record of 1-5 and are in danger of falling out of contention in the talented Big 12. West Virginia has lost four of their last five games and has Juwan Staten playing over 35 minutes a game. He's tough to get off of the court and he's an accurate shooter. Baylor will need to contain him for a chance to win the game. Staten is talented but man for man Baylor is a better squad that just needs to play better together and not get too lazy on defense. This game could be looked at later this year as a key turnaround point for Baylor. The Bears are 9-2 straight up at home and averaging 76.3 point per game, while West Virginia is averaging 78.8 point per game. Expect a close battle,
Prediction: Baylor 72, West Virginia 67
