WACO — The last time the Bears took the court against Kansas State, they were without King McClure and Makai Mason.

Since then, Baylor has had several guys step up. One of those guys is Devonte Bandoo.

Bandoo admitted to running out of gas in the post game press conference following their home matchup with the Wildcats.

But, Freddie Gillespie believes the team has gotten used to playing more minutes and that this time around will be different.

With Baylor being only one game out from first place in the Big 12, the team that was once picked as second to last, is still fighting to prove everyone who doubted them, wrong.

"I think the conditions are right. They're favorable. It's definitely a possibility, and we'll work hard to do it. I think we feel like that given the adversity we've overcome and how people kind of sold us short in the beginning... it's something we deserve," Gillespie said.

The Bears tip off in Manhattan Saturday at 7 p.m.
