Stansbury sizes up No. 6 Baylor

Mississippi State has knocked off ranked opponents already this season which has helped the Bulldogs become ranked themselves at No. 15 this week.

But MSU faces its toughest task to date on Wednesday against sixth-ranked Baylor as part of "The Showcase" at American Airlines Arena in Dallas.

"It's very obvious we a playing one of the better teams in the country right now in Baylor," said MSU head coach Rick Stansbury. "Scott (Drew)'s done a terrific job with them and they are playing at an extremely high level. They seem to be able to play a lot of different ways and I think they've got a lot of different weapons. We've got our work cut out for us."

Baylor enters the game undefeated at 12-0 on the year and have been winning by a 20.3-point margin this season. The Bears are scoring 79.6 points per game while holding their opponents to 59.3.
