Seth Davis' Weekend Picks: Kansas State (17-8, 6-7 Big 12) at No. 9 Baylor (22-4, 9-4)
For a team that has lost to just two teams all season, Baylor sure has a lot of detractors. The Bears snapped their two-game losing streak in impressive fashion Monday night, throttling a good Iowa State team by 15 points in Waco. Freshman forward Quincy Miller was terrific in that game, finishing with 16 points and six assists. Baylor is getting Kansas State at the perfect time. The Wildcats fought as hard as they could against Kansas Monday night, but they just couldn't get over the hump and suffered a six-point loss. Kansas State simply has to work too hard to score, and that's a problem when you have to play back-to-back road games at Baylor and Missouri.
