Texas State vs Baylor Preview
The Baylor Bears look to get back in the win column when they host the Texas State Bobcats in a Salute to Veterans game on Friday night.
The Bears (1-1) fell eight spots to No. 24 in the AP Top 25 Poll after dropping last Friday’s game to Washington, 67-64, at the Armed Forces Classic in Anchorage, Alaska.
Baylor led for 36:24 but wilted down the stretch, managing to score just a single point in the final 5:38.
The Bears, who made the 10-plus hours trek north, went 8-for-21 from three-point range, which was a stark difference from their first game when they made 18 three’s in a blowout win over Central Arkansas.
Leading the way for Baylor against Washington was sophomore guard Jared Butler, who scored 18.
Redshirt senior forward Freddie Gillespie added 11 points and 10 rebounds in the loss.
Baylor, who was picked second in the Big 12 Preseason Coaches Poll, is 125-16 in non-conference home games under head coach Scott Drew.
Meanwhile, Texas State (2-1) is coming off a 75-48 win on Tuesday over last season’s Southwest Athletic Conference NCAA Tournament representative, Prairie View A&M.
The Bobcats were led by senior guard Nijal Pearson who scored a season-high 23 points and added five rebounds.
Pearson earned first-team All-Sun Belt Conference honors last season.
Junior Isiah Small recorded a double-double with nine points and nine rebounds, and also swatted away two shots in Tuesday’s win.
The Bears and Bobcats are meeting for the first time since 2006 when Baylor defeated Texas State 89-64 on Dec. 2.
Total Points Over/Under: 135.5
