Game Preview

No. 10 Baylor will look to get back on the winning track when it squares off against No. 21 Duke on Wednesday at Madison Square Garden in New York.

The Bears (9-1) will play their second consecutive game against a big-name opponent on a neutral floor. The first was a surprising 88-64 loss to under-.500 Michigan State in Detroit on Saturday, the result being Baylor’s first setback of the season.

RayJ Dennis and Yves Missi scored 11 points apiece for the Bears, but that was nowhere near the effort needed to overcome a horrendous start. Baylor trailed by 30 points just before halftime and was down 45-17 at the break, the low mark for points scored in a half by the Bears this season.
