College basketball rankings: Baylor remains No. 2 in Top 25 And 1 after extending winning streak

Shorthanded and on the road against a likely NCAA Tournament team, just four days before a showdown with Kansas that will double as the biggest regular-season game in school history. Yeah, Baylor’s trip to Oklahoma sure had the ingredients for a letdown. But, ultimately, the Bears did Tuesday what they’ve been doing for more than three months now. They guarded like crazy, scored enough to control things and secured a 65-54 victory at Oklahoma to extend their winning streak to a Big 12-record 23 games.

“The amazing part of the streak is we’ve had different players step up each night,” Baylor coach Scott Drew told reporters afterward. “Nobody can be on for 23 straight nights.”

Now all eyes turn to Kansas.

The Bears will host the Jayhawks on Saturday in what will be the biggest game of the weekend. If Baylor wins, it’ll have a 24-game winning streak and two-game lead over Kansas in the Big 12 standings with just four regular-season games remaining. If the Bears lose, they’ll be tied with KU atop the league standings

Baylor is No. 2 in Wednesday morning’s updated CBS Sports Top 25 And 1 daily college basketball rankings. Kansas is No. 4. And Gonzaga remains No. 1 for the 52nd straight day. The Zags’ next game is Thursday against San Francisco.
