Bracketology (3/2) – Texas or Baylor in the Big 12?

  • Changes are from my 2/27 Bracketology
  • These are my “most deserving” teams based on resume, if you are looking for my current “best” teams, check out my top 25.

Texas or Baylor?

Texas: 17-13, #5 SOS, 5-11 vs KenPom “A-Level”, 3-2 vs KenPom “B-Level”
Baylor: 18-12, #14 SOS, 5-10 vs KenPom “A-Level”, 4-2 vs KenPom “B-Level”

Baylor also swept Texas when the two played head-to-head, leading me to put the Bears in over UT.
