Baylor vs Hartford Predictions & Tips


If this was a boxing match it would be a tune-up for Baylor.

The Bears are a serious cut above opponents Hartford and that should be clear for all to see on Friday night.

Solid defence and efficient offense should ensure Baylor put their Big 12 Tournament disappointment behind them.

  • Baylor have gone 22-2 this season
  • The Bears have beaten some top opposition, including March Madness contender Illinois
  • Baylor have ranked either #2 or #3 in the AP Poll during the entire 2020/21 season so far
  • Baylor boast the best three-point percentage in the country (42.9%)
  • Hartford won the AEC Tournament but lost eight times this season
  • Hartford were blown out in their one meeting with a ranked team, losing 87-53 to Villanova

Baylor Form & Team News


Only two teams have managed to beat Baylor this season. Sadly for them the second loss came in last week’s Big 12 Tournament.

They have gone 22-2 over the season though, so they are still in excellent form.

Jared Butler, MaCio Teague and Davion Mitchell are all efficient shooters producing an average of between 14.2 and 17.1 points per game.

Mitchell and Teague are good value for steals too, each averaging two per outing.

Hartford Form & Team News


Hartford went all the way in the AEC Tournament so they will be full of confidence.

However, they did lose eight times prior to that and were crushed by the one ranked opponent they faced.

Hartford share the points around with no stand-out scorer in the ranks.

Traci Carter and Moses Flowers are sharks around the ball though, averaging 2.6 and 2.1 steals per game respectively.

Verdict

Baylor losing in the Big 12 was probably the worst thing that could have happened to Hatford.
