Stanford didn't have too much trouble with the Valparaiso Brown and Gold at home on Wednesday as they won 74-60.
Meanwhile, Baylor simply couldn't be stopped on Wednesday, as they easily beat the Cent. Arkansas Bears at home 92-47. Baylor's success was spearheaded by the efforts of guard James Akinjo, who posted a double-double on 18 points and ten dimes along with six rebounds, and guard LJ Cryer, who had 20 points and six assists.
The Cardinal are the clear underdogs, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. True fans might be the only ones betting on them, currently 1-3 ATS, to cover the spread.
Stanford is now 3-1 while Baylor sits at 3-0. A pair of defensive stats to keep an eye on: Stanford has allowed their opponents to shoot 47.10% from the floor on average, which is the 35th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball.
