This will be a heavily wagered on game with Illinois ranked number 5 in the nation and Baylor ranked number 2. Baylor is a -4.5 favorite.
After the second-ranked Bears let Louisiana-Lafayette score 82 points on 52% shooting Saturday, Tang said he wasn’t “a happy camper” with the defense. The message got through Sunday against Washington.
Baylor held the Huskies to 36.5% shooting, Jared Butler scored 20 points and the Bears rolled to an 86-52 victory Sunday.
“I’m a happy camper with the effort on the defensive end today,” Bears assistant coach Jerome Tang said. “I was pleased with our guys focus. I only thought we had a couple of lulls … where we let it get away from us. Other than that I thought we were pretty locked in.”
