Baylor's Rico Gathers sets Big 12 rebounds record vs. Huston-Tillotson
Rico Gathers dominated the boards for Baylor (15-4, 3-3 Big 12) in an 81-61 win against NAIA foe Huston Tillotson on Wednesday night. The Rams struggled to get above or around the imposing 6-foot-8, 275-pound Gathers, as he set career highs with 25 points and 28 rebounds -- a single-game school and Big 12 record. His eight-point, eight-rebound effort Saturday night was enough to lift Baylor past No. 19 Oklahoma (12-7, 3-4). Up next for the Bears is a Tuesday showdown at Oklahoma State (13-6, 3-4).
Tyler Kalinoski gave an all-around effort for Davidson which went 2-0 in Week 10. He finished with 21 points, including a 3 of 4 effort from downtown in the sharpshooting Wildcats' 77-60 upset of No. 22 Dayton. Kalinoski also dished out four assists and grabbed six rebounds in the contest. He returned Saturday night to lead the team with 18 points in an 80-73 overtime win at George Mason. Davidson (14-4, 5-2 A 10) takes on Saint Joseph’s (8-10, 2-4) next Saturday.

One of the top big men in the nation, Frank Kaminsky continued to lead Wisconsin (18-2, 6-1) in Big Ten wins against No. 25 Iowa and Michigan. He posted a double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds as the Badgers pummeled the Hawkeyes 82-50. The win was the largest against a conference opponent since 2011. But against Michigan on Saturday, Kaminsky kicked it up another gear, scoring eight of his 22 points in overtime to give Wisconsin the 69-64 decision. He also shot 6-for-8 from the free-throw line and pulled in nine rebounds. Kaminsky and the Badgers head to Iowa on Saturday.
