2019 Tournament PreviewTwo months into the season, Baylor didn't look tourney bound. But after losing to the likes of Texas Southern, Wichita State and Stephen F. Austin in non-conference, the Bears turned things around with a six-game winning streak in the Big 12, including wins against Iowa State, Texas Tech and at Oklahoma. Baylor then proceeded to lose seven of its last 11 and go one-and-done in the conference tournament. Still, the Bears ranked first in the Big 12 in offensive efficiency during conference play (per KenPom) thanks to great rebounding. They rank second nationally in KenPom's offensive rebounding percentage and have three players who average at least five rebounds per game. Leading scorer Makai Mason (14.6 ppg) shoots 36.5 percent from deep, while Devonte Bandoo (8.6 ppg) hits 39.2 percent of his 3-pointers. The Bears don't have overwhelming talent, but they have depth with seven players averaging at least 18 minutes.
