Live In-Game Updates: Baylor Bears Host Oklahoma State Cowboys – Sports Illustrated

Fresh off their first conference win of the season, the Baylor Bears play host to the Oklahoma State Cowboys in a Big 12 showdown Saturday afternoon. Both teams are battling to get out of the bottom half of the conference standings after slow starts to the new year.
The Bears have dominated the rivalry lately, winning 12 of the last 15 games against the Pokes, but Oklahoma State came into the Ferrell Center and knocked off the Bears last year when Baylor was ranked No. 1 in the country. In the return fixture, the Bears muscled out an overtime victory in Stillwater.
Baylor is coming off their first Big 12 win of the season, a slugfest in Morgantown with 69 combined free throws, 83-78. The game was the Keyonte George show, as the freshman went off for a career-high 32 points to go along with seven rebounds. In his return to the Coliseum after playing two seasons at West Virginia, Jalen Bridges notched a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds in 36 minutes.
While the Bears have struggled on the defensive end, Oklahoma State ranks dead last in the conference at just over 68 points a game. The Cowboys are also last in the league in field goals, assists and are ninth in three-pointers made. Conversely, the Pokes lead the conference in rebounds and blocks.
