Despite the loss, Baylor had strong showings from Yves Missi, who scored 21 points along with eight rebounds and two blocks, and Ja'Kobe Walter, who scored 17 points along with eight rebounds and two steals.

Among those leading the charge was Jalon Moore, who scored 15 points along with eight rebounds and four blocks.
