What: The No. 2 ranked Baylor Bears (22-1) face the No. 12 ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys (19-7) in a Big 12 conference tournament semifinal men’s college basketball game.
Prediction: I like Oklahoma State in this one, with Cade Cunningham back in the lineup this team has some juice and would expect them to come out ready to play tonight. Baylor looked sluggish yesterday and them winning by 9 seems to be too much.
