Two of the hottest teams in the Big 12 Are clashing on the court Monday night.

Baylor is fresh off an upset of number 8 Texas Tech, but West Virginia just took down number 7 Kansas.

The Bears will have to go into the same stadium that put the Jayhawks on upset alert and try to find a way to win.

So far, defense has been the key for Scott Drew's Bears and he believes nothing travels better.

"The real offense, defense begins when the shot goes up, because if we limit them to one shot then they have 4 guys crashing and we have an advantage in transition. If they're getting offensive rebounds and scoring then they have an advantage because they can set their press up and obviously those are two foot shots," Head Coach Scott Drew said.

"We have a lot of making up to do, a lot of ground to cover. Nobody really expects us to do anything. So we just have to continue to look at it from an underdog perspective and continue to bring that same energy, that same focus, every single game," King McClure, Baylor's senior guard, said. 

This matchup is going to come down to whoever can find a way to score because both defenses have been lights out recently.

Tip off for this one is set for 8 p.m. Monday in Morgantown.
