I am not sure, but just watching parts of their two tournament games, they are very athletic. Should be our toughest contest of the year to date.

For players that average over 10 minutes a game:

Starters
5-11
6-3
6-5
6-10
7-0

Bench
6-8
6-3
6-5
6-9 (this guy's minutes are sporadic though. He's only played 6 minutes in the tournament)

Johnathan Motley (6-10) looks to be a beast. Averaging almost a double-double: 17 ppg and 9.9 rpg. I imagine they will use him early and often to try and get Silva and Kotsar in foul trouble.

They are a much tougher matchup for us than Marquette & Duke because they can defend and they also have a stellar point guard. Motley is a load in the interior too. I would say they are Bama-like in that they are going to be extremely difficult to score on.

This is not a favorable match up. To win this game we're going to have to hit some perimeter shots because Baylor is primarily a zone team which means getting to the hoop is harder, especially with the size they have at the PF and C positions. They're beatable but it's going to take us knocking down some shots on the perimeter and keeping them off the offensive glass. Look for a low scoring slugfest between two stout defenses.

Default Re: On to business...How do we stack up with Baylor?

In addition to being equally stout on defense, we are nearly dead even at scoring. Baylor comes in at 169 with 73.5 ppg and we are close behind at 179 with 73.1 ppg.

This shapes up to be a very, very even contest. Our strengths and weaknesses match up very closely. We won't be able to out-physical them like we did Marquette and Duke. I second what gotrice? said in that we're going to have be able to hit from outside to keep them honest. This will be the biggest challenge of our season so far.

Edit: It could come down to our greatest team strength: creating turnovers. We come in at 5th nationally, forcing 17.48 per game. Baylor is 311, with 11.21 forced per game. So far in the tournament we have almost exactly hit our season average with 18 forced in both games.

We need Gravett to get back into form and hit some outside shots. He was money when we played UGA. We need him to step up.

Guys we aren't the team and aren't even 24 hours after beating DUKE IN THE NCAA TOURNAMENT. Let our team worry about Friday night against another horrible excuse of a University.

WE SHOULD BE HAVING BEER FOR BREAKFAST AND STILL CELEBRATING!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you.

I'm watching some Baylor 2017 on YouTube, and they look nasty on defense.

Baylor will be a different deal in part because they have an actual point guard. The Notice match up will be key...yet again. They are athletic for sure but we've played plenty of athletic teams. They also play a very effective and aggressive zone defense so hitting shots will be key to open things up...as will getting it inside to Chris...as will staying aggressive on offense and taking it to the hole.

And Bama was a bad matchup this year for us.
Every game will be tougher, but this Baylor game sounds like a bad matchup where our guys are going to have to be selective and take good shots, work the ball and above all, play defense.
