After embarrassing losses over the weekend, both teams welcome their “Big Monday” showdown but the question is who will take the game victory? The 10th ranked Bears fell at home to Kansas State in a game that came down to the final seconds, while the Longhorns ran into a buzzsaw at Oklahoma State and lost in a rout. The two teams have met each year except on 1908, when Texas didn’t field a team ever since the series started in 1906.
The loss has cost Texas greatly, which requires all the wins it can get as it pursues a 14th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance. A resume-boosting upset of the Bears on national TV would go a long way towards helping the Longhorn’s case.

Baylor Bears (22-5)
On Saturday, for the first time this season, the Bears fell to a team other than Missouri or Kansas. In a rigorous attempt at defense, Baylor lost 58-57 to Kansas State despite having multiple chances in the final minute to win the game. The closet setback was out of character for the Bears, who have been great in tight contests this season with a 7-2 record in games decided by five points or less. Sophomore Perry Jones III will look to bounce back from a four-point, four-rebound performance in which he fouled out. Baylor is 4-0 against Big 12 schools from the state of Texas this season. The Bears are 20-0 when leading at halftime.
Texas Longhorns (17-10)
If the Longhorns hope to make the NCAA tournament then they better puck up a marquee victory. A trip to Kansas will close the regular season, but this matchup seems like a much more likely chance to a win. JCovan Brown, the Big 12’s leading scorer, had 32 points in Texas’ last meeting with Baylor, a 76-71 loss.
Including that game, Brown averaged 21.6 points over a seven-game stretch. The Freshman point guard Myck Kabongo is coming off a career –high 22-point outing.
