ABOUT BAYLOR (15-0, 3-0 Big 12): The Bears’ 15-game win streak to start the season is the second best in program history trailing just a 17-game start in 2011-12. Johnathan Motley, a 6-9, 230-pound junior forward who is moving up NBA draft charts and was named the Big 12 Player of the Week for the second time this season on Monday, leads the team in scoring (15.8) and rebounding (9.4) and has had a double-double in four straight games. Junior point guard Manu Lecomte, a transfer from Miami, is second in scoring (11.8) and leads the team in assists (4.9) while junior guard Al Freeman (11.1) and 7-foot forward Jo Lual-Acuil Jr. (10.7) also are averaging in double figures.

ABOUT WEST VIRGINIA (13-2, 2-1): The Mountaineers have won nine of their last 10 games with the only loss by one point, 77-76, at Texas Tech last week. Sophomore forward Esa Ahmad (12.9 ppg, 4.9 rpg) leads a well-balanced attack that features eight players averaging 6.9 points or more. Junior guard Daxter Miles Jr. is second in scoring (11.1) and is shooting 45.2 percent from 3-point range while junior guard Jevon Carter also is averaging in double figures (10.5) while dishing off a team best 4.7 assists and ranks fourth nationally with an average of 3.1 steals per game.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Mountaineers listed as 6-point favorites versus the Bears, while the game’s total is sitting at 138.5 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Undefeated Baylor earned its first No. 1 ranking in school history on Monday. Now the question is how long can the Bears, who travel to No. 9 West Virginia on Tuesday night, remain in the top spot?

The contest with the Mountaineers comes just two days shy of the one-year anniversary of the last time a No. 1-ranked team visited Morgantown. West Virginia knocked off then top-rated Kansas, 74-63, and is 4-8 all-time when facing a No. 1 ranked team. No matter what happens on Tuesday night, however, Baylor, which began the season unranked, has plenty of reason to celebrate the milestone. “Not many people get a chance to be ranked No. 1, and that’s a great honor,” said Baylor coach Scott Drew. “Baylor Nation deserves it, because they helped us get here. We’re glad to make them proud and happy and give them something to be excited about. Big picture, we know no one is going to remember who is ranked No. 1 the first week of January. We’re on to other things and trying to control what we can control.
