A top-25 matchup awaits Bramlage Coliseum when the No. 2 Baylor Bears come to Manhattan to visit the No. 25 Kansas State Wildcats tonight.
It will be the second matchup between the two teams this season; the Bears handedly defeated the Wildcats 87-57 in Waco, Texas on Dec. 29.
Baylor sits at 19-1 on the season, including a perfect 8-0 start in conference play. The team’s only loss came on the road to No. 1 Connecticut, a team K-State has also lost to.
The Bears are lead by senior guard Alexis Jones, who leads the team in scoring, averaging 14.7 points per game. Sophomore Kalani Brown is second on the team in scoring with 13.9 points per game and leads the team in rebounding with 8.3 rebounds per game.
K-State sits at 15-5 this year with a 5-3 record in conference play. Only two of K-State’s losses have came from teams that weren’t ranked in the top 25 and both of those losses occurred on the road.
Senior center Breanna Lewis has been the rock for this K-State team, leading the team in scoring and rebounding, with 14.8 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. Senior guard Kindred Wesemann is the other Wildcat averaging double figures with 13.6 points per game and has knocked down a team leading 59 shots form behind-the-arc.
The game will tip off at 7 p.m. in the Octagon of Doom and will be televised on ESPN3.
