Cherry averaged 22.5 points, 6.0 assists and 4.5 rebounds as Baylor defeated No. 16 Iowa State and ended Kansas State’s 15-game home winning streak. The junior guard had a career high 29 points at K-State as the Bears became the first Big 12 team to win in Manhattan this season. He connected on 13-of-14 from the free throw line in the contest, including all 10 attempts in the final three minutes. He had 16 points in the win over the Cyclones, with just one turnover in 34 minutes. Cherry shot 53.6 percent from the floor in two outings, helping Baylor improve its record to 7-1 since he returned to the starting lineup after a turf toe injury.

Wiggins averaged 25.0 points and six rebounds on 60 percent shooting as the Jayhawks recorded a 1-1 week, defeating Texas Tech before falling at West Virginia. The freshman guard had his top performance in Morgantown as he recorded a career-high 41 points on 12-of-18 (.667) shooting. It was the second-best scoring total in the Big 12 this year and also the second-highest point total in a game by a freshman in Big 12 history. Wiggins’ 41 points was also a Kansas freshman record. He added five steals and four blocked shots, becoming the only Division I player in the past 15 campaigns with at least five steals and four rejections in a 40-point game.
