Baylor did what No. 1 seeds should do when they play No. 16 seeds, and they blew out the Norfolk State Spartans 85-49 on Thursday. Bears fans had to be thrilled watching the Kentucky Wildcats lose their Round 1 game because Baylor’s path just got a whole lot easier if they can take advantage.
North Carolina built a significant lead continued to destroy the No. 9 seed Marquette Golden Eagles 95-63 in the first round. The Tar Heels are 1-0 in the NCAA Tournament in the Hubert Davis era, but an upset win over Baylor would be far more impressive.
Baylor is a 5.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook. The point total sits at 149.
