No. 2 Baylor (12-0, 5-0) takes on No. 6 Kansas (10-3, 4-2) at 8:00 on Monday in the Ferrell Center. The game airs on ESPN.
The Bears are the higher ranked KenPom team for the second time ever in this series. While you could argue the 2012 Bears should have been favored in Lawrence or Waco, or that a few other teams—most notably the 2017 team in Waco and the 2020 team in Waco—should have also been favored, this is a unique game. This is the first game in the series where every objective observer would say Baylor has the better team than Kansas.
