    The No. 14 West Virginia Mountaineers will host the No. 15 Baylor Bears in Morgantown, W. Va. on Saturday in a Big 12 showdown.

    The Mountaineers (18-4, 7-2 Big 12) are tied with Oklahoma at the top of the conference and bounced back from their loss to Florida with a 81-76 win at Iowa State. West Virginia rallied in this one with a big second half and took a 75-74 lead with just over a minute to go on a Jaysean Paige three-pointer. The Mountaineers hit six consecutive free throws to close out the game. West Virginia wasn’t effective from three (4-of-11), but it made up for it by dominating the Cyclones on the glass, winning the rebounding battle, 43-27, including 17 offensive boards. Paige led West Virginia with a game-high 23 points and six rebounds off the bench.

    The Bears (17-5, 6-3 Big 12) are looking to bounce back from a tough 67-59 loss to in-state rival Texas Monday night. The Longhorns took a six point lead into halftime, but the Bears fought back to tie the game at 37 early in the second half. Texas, however, would take the lead back shortly after and never give it back as it held off Baylor for its sixth win in seven games. Baylor could not contain Texas’ three-point shooting (8-of-17, 47.1 percent) or its ball movement as the Longhorns assisted on all 21 made field goals. Rico Gathers finished with a game-high 20 points and eight rebounds to pace the Bears with Taurean Prince not to far behind with 18.

    Saturday’s game between West Virginia and Baylor will be the ninth meeting all-time, with the Bears holding a 7-1 edge. Baylor has won the last four matchups including all three last season.
