Baylor Looks to Handle Sooners Inside

The fans at Lloyd Noble Center will be treated to a game between the Baylor Bears and the Oklahoma Sooners when they take their seats on Friday. Oklahoma is in a bad need of a win, and lack a quality win heading into conference play.

Oddsmakers currently have the Bears listed as 6½-point favorites versus the Sooners, while the game’s total is sitting at 142.

Oklahoma was a 74-70 loser in their most recent outing at home against the Auburn Tigers. They failed to cover the -5-point spread as favorites. Khadeem Lattin started well offensively for the Sooners. He was scoring 10 or more points in five of the Sooners’ first six games. He hasn’t cracked double digits since. He remains in the starting lineup, but sophomore Jamuni McNeace has had more playing time in the last two games.

Baylor was a 89-63 winner in its last match at home against Texas Southen Tigers. The Bears are 12-0 in non-conference play entering Friday’s Big 12 opener at Oklahoma. They have climbed up to No. 4 in the polls. Baylor has done it despite losing lottery pick Taurean Prince, the school’s all-time leading rebounder in Rico Gathers.  As well as starting point guard from last season in Lester Medford.
