No. 18 Men's Basketball Hosts Southern - Baylor University Official Athletic Site, No. 18 Baylor men's basketball hosts Southern at 7 p.m. CT Wednesday in its final game before Big 12 Conference play begins at Texas Tech on Dec. 29. Wednesday's game will be televised on Fox College Sports and Fox Sports Go.

Baylor looks to avoid upset against Southern, CBSSports, Baylor has shown resiliency while facing multiple obstacles throughout its nonconference schedule the last six weeks.

The 18th-ranked Bears were thinned out by injuries before the season began and got thinner when forward Terry Maston suffered a broken hand in a late-November loss at Xavier. But Baylor (9-2) still managed to post decent wins against Wisconsin and Creighton and battled in defeats against Xavier and Wichita State.

In the last week, Baylor essentially used a seven-man rotation to ease past Texas Southern and Savannah State. The Bears will try to do the same thing Wednesday night when they host Southern (3-8) at Ferrell Center.

Southern University's defense came alive in the second half, holding FAMU to 30 percent shooting and nine turnovers resulting in 19 points off of those second-half turnovers to defeat FAMU 68-50 Thursday night at the Clifford Seymour Gym. The Jags recorded a season-high 9 steals and forced 24 turnovers.

No. 18 Baylor men host Southern, WacoTrib, The Bears head into their final pre-conference game against Southern with four straight wins. They’re on an offensive roll as they’ve averaged 107.3 points in the last three games, and set a record for points in the Scott Drew era in Sunday’s 118-86 win over Savannah State.
