With the college football season now officially over, it’s time for college basketball to take center stage in a big way with two top-10 match ups on Tuesday, beginning with the ninth-ranked Iowa State Cyclones welcoming in the seventh-ranked Baylor Bears for a Big 12 showdown.
Iowa State is off to their best start in school history at 13-0 on the season and are coming off a win in their first conference game against the Texas Tech Red Raiders, 73-62, on January 4.
