Matthew Mayer racked up 20 points (6-13 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, two assists and four steals in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 77-68 win over West Virginia. Mayer looked as confident as he has looked all season in a big spot on the road with Baylor coming off two straight losses and without their best player in James Akinjo. Mayer is now averaging 18.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.5 three-pointers, and 2.5 steals over the last two games after going seven straight games scoring in single figures.
