SCOUTING IOWA STATE
• Through 17 games, Iowa State (13-4, 0-2 Big 12) is two wins shy of matching the Cyclones’ 2009-10 season wins total. The Cyclones turnaround can be attributed to the direction of first-year head coach, Iowa State legend and 10-year NBA veteran Fred Hoiberg. Iowa State started the season 13-2, but the Cyclones have stumbled of late, losing their first two Big 12 contests — 63-62 at Nebraska and 84-79 vs. No. 3 Kansas.
• Iowa State relies heavily on its starting lineup for scoring production, as all five Cyclones starters are averaging in double figures through 17 games — Diante Garrett (17.6), Scott Christopherson (14.2), Melvin Ejim (12.3), Jake Anderson (11.5) and Jamie Vanderbeken (11.2). Those five have combined for 1,123 of Iowa State’s 1,306 total points, accounting for 86 percent of the team’s total scoring production.
• Saturday’s contest in Ames will feature two marquee matchups between the league’s top freshmen as well as the league’s top 3-point shooters. Freshman F Melvin Ejim is averaging 12.3 points and 7.2 rebounds in 29.1 minutes-per game (Baylor’s Perry Jones III is averaging 13.3 points and 7.4 boards in 31.2 minutes).
• Baylor’s LaceDarius Dunn and Iowa State’s Scott Christopherson rank 1-2 in the Big 12 in 3FG made/game. Dunn leads the nation with 4.17 3FG/game, while Christopherson ranks second in the Big 12 (3.06) and seventh nationally.
• 10 of Iowa State’s 13 wins this season have come at Hilton Coliseum — eight have been by double-digits, while the Cyclones’ lone two losses have been by five points or less.

UP NEXT
• Baylor puts its 15-game home winning streak on the line Jan. 17 against perennial national power Kansas on ESPN’s “Big Monday” platform. Baylor and Kansas will meet for the third time on “Big Monday” in Waco. Monday’s game will tip at 8:35 p.m. CST on ESPN. Brent Musberger (play-by-play), Bob Knight (analyst) and Holly Rowe (sideline) will serve as the on-air ESPN talent.
• Baylor is 1-2 all-time on the “Big Monday” platform (1-1 vs. Kansas).

ROAD — AND NEUTRAL — WARRIORS
• When Baylor takes the court at Iowa State, the Bears will be playing their second true road game this season.
• In the last four seasons under eighth-year head coach Scott Drew, Baylor has won 17 neutral-site and 17 true road games — a combined 34-27 record away from home.
• In Baylor’s first 11 seasons in the Big 12, it won a combined 28 games away from Waco (13 road wins).

A ROAD WIN IN THE BIG 12 IS HARD TO FIND
• Baylor is 11-46 in its last 57 Big 12 road games, but has won four straight road games in league play, dating back to the end of the 2009-10 season.
• Under eighth-year head coach Scott Drew, Baylor has posted road wins against seven different Big 12 schools.

BIG 12 NORTH SUCCESS
• Since the 2000-01 season, Baylor has had much more success against the Big 12 North schools than those in the South. Baylor is 26-34 (.433) over the last 11 seasons vs. Big 12 North schools in the regular season, while posting just a 29-73 (.284) against the South.
• Baylor is 16-26 (.381) in 42 regular-season games against the Big 12 North in the Scott Drew era. In the seven previous Big 12 seasons prior to Drew’s arrival, the Bears were 15-27 (.357) against the North.

PJ3 STEPPING IT UP IN CONFERENCE PLAY
• Averaging 11.8 points and 7.5 rebounds in his first 13 career games, freshman F Perry Jones III is averaging 22.5 points and 6.5 rebounds in two Big 12 contests. Jones III is shooting 81.8 percent (18-of-22) from the floor and 75.0 percent (9-of-12) at the FT line.
• Jones III has opened Big 12 play with back-to-back 20-point games — a then-career-high-tying 20 points at Texas Tech (Jan. 8), followed by a career-high 25 points vs. Oklahoma (Jan. 11). PJ3 became the first Baylor freshman to post back-to-back 20-point games since LaceDarius Dunn did it twice during the 2007-08 season.

BAYLOR’S BEST STARTS IN THE BIG 12 ERA
• Baylor (12-3, 2-0) is seeking only its third 3-0 conference start in the Big 12 era and its first since starting league play 4-0 in 2007-08. That season, the Bears finished 9-7 in Big 12 play.
• The Bears’ only other 3-0 start in league play was in 1997-98, when they started 5-0 (finished 8-8).

NOT DUNN YET — TRIPLE STREAK CONTINUES
• Senior LaceDarius Dunn has made a 3-point field goal in a school-record-tying 29 consecutive games. Dunn is tied Tevis Stukes, who has held the streak for nearly 11 years.
• Dunn, who is the only player in school history with multiple 3-point streaks of 20 games or more, owns every major 3-point record at Baylor. He has made a 3-point field goal in 111 of his 118 career games.

CONTINUING TO HOLD OPPOSITION UNDER 70
• Baylor has held 13 of its first 15 opponents under 70 points this season, posting an 11-2 record.
• Baylor has won nine straight Big 12 games when holding opponents under 70 and 16 of its last 17.
• Prior to Baylor’s 68-64 loss Dec. 18 in Dallas to Gonzaga, the Bears had won 30 games when holding opponents under 70 points. The neutral-site loss at American Airlines Center was Baylor’s first when holding an opponent under 70 since April 2, 2009, when it loss 69-63 to Penn State in the NIT championship game.
• Since the start of the 2007-08 season, Baylor is 61-5 when holding opponents under 70 points.
