Nicholls State @ No. 8 Baylor
Current Records: Nicholls State 3-0; Baylor 1-0
What to Know
The Nicholls State Colonels have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will square off against the #8 Baylor Bears at noon ET on Monday at Ferrell Center. Both teams are sauntering into the matchup backed by comfortable wins in their prior games.
The sound you heard this past Saturday was the absolute smackdown Nicholls State laid on the Carver Bible College Cougars.
Meanwhile, the Bears were the big favorite in their most recent matchup, and for good reason. They blew past the Incarnate Word Cardinals 87-60 this past Friday. Baylor got double-digit scores from five players: Matthew Mayer (14), LJ Cryer (13), Kendall Brown (13), James Akinjo (10), and Jeremy Sochan (10).
Their wins bumped Nicholls State to 3-0 and Baylor to 1-0. With both Nicholls State and Baylor swaggering in after impressive performances, it will be interesting to see which team steps up to teach the other some humility.
