Baylor will need a huge upset to avoid its fourth conference loss in five games and third loss in a row after disappointing efforts in Lubbock and at home against Oklahoma.

As nearly as I can tell, Kansas is a ~10 point favorite tonight on their home court. It would probably be a moral victory of sorts to keep it within that number. Kansas has two of the best players in the country in Joel Embiid and Andrew Wiggins. Embiid, in particular, has come on lately, throwing himself into the conversation for the #1 overall pick for the NBA Draft this summer, should he declare. If Baylor is to have any chance tonight, it will probably need a career game from either Cory Jefferson or Isaiah Austin (both would be great) against Embiid, and someone will have to win a mismatch against Wiggins on the outside.
