Last time out for Kansas State, they were a 66-65 loser as they battled Red Raiders on the road. They covered in the match as a +4.5-point underdog.

Baylor lost its last outing, a 89-68 result against Mountaineers on January 10. They failed to cover in that game as a +5.5-point underdog.

Top-ranked Baylor got to enjoy it’s first ever No. 1 ranking for one whole day before getting thumped at ninth-ranked West Virginia on Tuesday. Now the Bears will try to avoid their first losing streak of the season when they visit Kansas State on Saturday afternoon.

Baylor had a season-high 29 turnovers in the 89-68 loss at Morgantown, but despite its No. 1 ranking it really wasn’t a big upset considering the Mountaineers actually went into the contest as 5 1/2-point favorites. “It’s disappointing but we knew it would be a tough game,” forward Terry Maston told the Waco Tribune. “We knew they would try to speed us up and ride the momentum of beating (then-No. 1) Kansas last year. But I still believe in our team, and we’re going to get ready to play Kansas State on Saturday.” Kansas State, which knocked off No. 1-ranked Oklahoma last year at home, has lost three games by a combined four points against Maryland (69-68), Kansas (90-88) and Tuesday at Texas Tech (66-65). “We’ve been in big games,” Wildcats coach Bruce Weber told the Manhattan (Kan.) Mercury. “We were on a big stage (against Oklahoma last year). We played Maryland in the Barclays. It’s a great opportunity.”
