Kentucky-Baylor clash in Dallas

(RNN) - No. 3 Kentucky (7-1) travels to AST&T Stadium in Arlington, TX, to face No. 20 Baylor on Friday night for a 10 p.m. tipoff. The stadium will host the finals of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament in April.

Baylor has four players averaging double-figure scoring: The 6-9 Cory Jefferson scores 13.5 points and grabs 8.8 boards per outing; Kenny Cherry averages 10 points and has dealt 39 assists, and is a 90 percent free throw shooter.

Isaiah Austin, who is 7'1", is averaging 10.5 points and has 26 blocks and helps give the Bears an advantage around the hoop.

Kentucky is coming off a 79-65 win over Providence that saw James Young score 18 points and Willie Cauley-Stein scored 15 and blocked nine shots.

Julius Randle failed to make a double-double for the first time in his college career, but will look to get back on track against the Bears, who have an excellent inside-out game. They hit more than 44 percent from 3-point range.

    A seasonably hot and humid summer air mass will bathe the Cape Fear Region into the weekend. Moisture from the remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy and the approach of a front will boost rain chances at times. Following the front, a dose of marginally cooler air with lower rain chances appears possible if not likely by the middle of next week.
