SOURCES: Baylor Finalizing Matchup with Duke at Madison Square Garden

According to Jon Rothstein and multiple other sources, the Baylor Men’s Basketball team is finalizing an agreement with the Duke Blue Devils to face off in a neutral site matchup. The contest will take place at Madison Square Garden on December 20th.

Baylor ended the season at No. 19 in the final top 25 rankings after its 85-76 loss to Creighton in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Duke finished at No. 18 in the final top 25 after losing in the second round of the NCAA Tournament against Tennessee 65-52. 

Most preseason rankings have Duke inside the top 5 but at worst the Blue Devils are looking like a preseason top 10 team heading into the summer. Baylor, on the other hand, is still filling out its roster and waiting for draft decisions which is why most have the Bears as a fringe top-25 preseason team currently.

I'll go to this game. I'd go even if Matt Sayman was our starting point guard.

If timed correctly, these high profile matchups can really benefit both teams and CBB in general.

Interesting match up. Are they any good? I know the university has an academic reputation. I don't know much about their MBB. I don't recall them being in the ncaa tournament much in recent years.

Same school that nearly knocked off the Udoh lead Bears like a decade ago. Typically middle of the pack in the Ivy League. Should handle them
