Game Preview

No. 3 Houston puts its four-game winning streak and the top spot in the Big 12 on the line when it travels north to battle No. 11 Baylor in Waco, Texas.

It’s the first time the teams have played since squaring off in the Final Four on April 3, 2021, in Indianapolis, a game won by Baylor 78-59 on its way to the national championship. Saturday’s game is just their third meeting since 2002 and first as conference opponents since 1996.

The Cougars (23-3, 10-3) hit the road after a rousing 73-65 win at No. 6 Iowa State Monday in a clash of the top two teams in the league standings. Jamal Shead had 26 points, 20 of them in the second half, to lead Houston while Emanuel Sharp added 20 as the Cougars captured their 20th straight home game.
