Baylor and Texas are set to face off in a battle of top 20 teams and the 10th-ranked Bears head to Austin to take on the No. 20 Texas Longhorns.
The Bears are coming off of arguably their biggest win of the season, an 80-70 victory over the fifth-ranked Kansas Jayhawks, exacting revenge after the Jayhawks dismantled Baylor in Lawrence a few weeks ago.
Now, with a wave of momentum heading into the final week of the regular season, Baylor will take on Texas but could be getting a big piece back in their lineup.
Baylor guard LJ Cryer, who has not been in the lineup since February 16th, is listed as a game-time decision ahead of tonight’s game, according to CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein.
Getting Cryer back ahead of the conference tournament next week would be a huge addition for the Bears. If he is able to go in tonight’s game and Saturday’s game against Iowa State, it would allow Cryer to get his bearings back before the Big 12 or NCAA tournament. Either way, his addition back into the rotation will be great news for Scott Drew and the Bears.
As it sits now, Baylor is just a 0.5 game back from KU in second place, while the Longhorns are 2.5 games off pace.
