Result: Loss
The Baylor Bears take on the Gonzaga Bulldogs in the Peacock Classic in Sioux Falls, SD. Baylor is 5-2 this season and is ranked 6th in the country. They are coming off a bad loss at the hands of Marquette. Gonzaga is also 5-2 this season and is ranked 15th in the country. Their two losses have come at the hands of Texas and Purdue. Against Marquette, Baylor never got started and was down 51-25 at the half and ended up losing 96-70. On the season, the Bears are putting up 88 points a game and are shooting 50% from the floor overall and 38% from 3pt range. The Zags are usually a fixture in the top five all season but this season has gotten off to a rocky start as they have lost two of the three games they have played against ranked opponents. The Zags are putting up 84 points a game and shooting almost 52% for the season. They need to step it up on the defensive end as they are giving up 77 points a game. The Zags are 3-1 in neutral site games this season while Baylor is 1-1. Baylor has played the 304th toughest schedule at this point in the season while Gonzaga has played the third toughest. These are the top two teams in offensive efficiency. Gonzaga will pound the ball into the paint and look to get Baylor's big men into foul trouble. Gonzaga has played the tougher competition and I look for that to pay dividends down the stretch.

Play on Gonzaga.
