Big 12 basketball preview: Top players, games to watch and bold predictions

Baylor forward Tristan Clark only played in 15 games last year after suffering a knee injury midseason. But in that time, he still averaged 14.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game on 73.7 percent shooting. Yes, you read that correctly.

Andy Katz believes that Clark is the most underrated player in the Big 12 heading into the 2019-20 season. Check out the rest of his Big 12 predictions below.
