The Baylor Bears looked almost unstoppable before their COVID-induced hiatus in February. After losing the whole season for the first time last weekend in Kansas, the team seems to be bringing their mojo back into the home battle with Texas Tech on Sunday.
In their wins against West Virginia and Oklahoma State last week Baylor rediscovered his 3-point shot and made 22 of his 53 outside shots, including 9 of 18 by security guard Jared Butler. For the season, the Bears have the best 3-point shooting percentage in the nation (42 percent).
Texas Tech ranks 14th in the country with the fewest points allowed per possession in defense but the Red Raiders are a different team than Lubbock, dropping 16.7 more points per 100 possessions on the street than at home. The team also allows opponents to shoot 39.8 percent from 3-point range in street games, compared to 28.9 percent at home, with the 3-point defense of the street at number 324.
Baylor was also strong on defense, finishing 17th on points allowed per possession. And the Bears turn defense into offense, grabbing the nation’s third most steals per possession for quick break chances.
Baylor rebounds 35.5 percent of his misses, which ranks 7th . Therefore, the bears record of 14: 7 against the spread on Sunday should continue to improve.
