No. 13 Kansas State at Baylor
• WHEN/WHERE: 6 p.m. Saturday at the Ferrell Center in Waco, Texas
• TV/RADIO: ESPN2; WHB (810 AM)• ABOUT KANSAS STATE (23-5, 12-3 Big 12): If the Wildcats win at Baylor, their final game of the regular season at Oklahoma State will likely have Big 12 championship implications. K-State is tied with Kansas for first place in the conference standings with three games remaining, and the Wildcats’ next two games are against the Bears and last-place TCU. … Jordan Henriquez will be available after missing the Texas Tech game while he attended his grandmother’s funeral in New York. He could be a difference-maker. He had his first double-double against the Bears two weeks ago at Bramlage Coliseum.
• ABOUT BAYLOR (17-11, 8-7 Big 12): The Bears have lost six of their last nine games and are out of the Big 12 championship mix after starting league play 5-1. … But they did build some momentum on Wednesday with a narrow victory at West Virginia. Isaiah Austin scored 21 points with six rebounds. … A.J. Walton led Baylor with 14 points at K-State, but Pierre Jackson is the team’s top player. He leads the conference in both scoring and assists.
• BOTTOM LINE: Baylor should be able to push K-State at home, but it hasn’t defeated a team in the top half of the Big 12 since beating Oklahoma State on Jan. 21. If the Wildcats hope to win a league title, this is a game it should win.
