# 15 Ranked Iowa State will try to remain on the same momentum and win back to back games for the first time since last month, as they visit the 22nd seed Baylor on Tuesday night. Both teams are currently tied for 4th in the BIG 12 but Iowa State are coming back from a huge win this Saturday over then # 24 Texas 85-75. It was a relief for the Cyclones having dropped 3 out of 4 before their game this weekend. Monte Morris had a tremendous game and season high 24 points while Jameel Mackay’s return from suspension certainly helped the Cyclones with 8 points, 7 rebounds and 4 blocks.
The Baylor Bears will hope to find their stride after their defeat to Texas Tech on Saturday 84-66. For them as well, it was their 3rd setback in 4 games. They will need to gain their form back if they want to beat the Cyclones again like they did in early January 94-89 amidst a 5 game winning streak during that stretch. The Bears will need to contain somehow the 50.2% shooting percentage from Iowa State, as well as big man George Niang, averaging 20 points over the past games and his teammate Monte Morris who leads the BIG 12 in assists average with 7. They will count on their leading scorer Taurean Prince who averages 17.5 points the past 2 games and 15.1 on the year as well as their big inside man, Rico Gathers who leads the BIG 12 in rebounds averaging 10.2 a game with 12.4 points.
