Przemek Kanowski could probably get 50 on Dusan Ristic tonight — if the Zags guards keep feeding him the ball in the post.

So far UCLA and Baylor have been two of the best teams this season. Hard to argue against their early resumes. Both are a good watch and will be entertaining to track the next four months. Will be curious to see how high they will ultimately get on seed line. Neither may ultimately win their respective league but will have strong SOS.

Put me in the camp that likes when basketball coaches wear the golf shirts like Gonzaga and Arizona are now on ESPN in LA. Coaches go through an intense two hours and don't need to be restricted by a tie and coat. I know Zags' Mark Few is a fan of this look.

Baylor has five top-35 KenPom wins: Louisville, Oregon, Michigan State, VCU -- and now Xavier. Should enter Big 12 play at 12-0.

Mike Krzyzewski said on pre-game show that Marques Bolden could potentially play tonight against Maine, also.

Manu Lecomte has been a difference-maker for Baylor. Career-high 24 with 3 minutes left. Baylor 71, Xavier 53.
