WACO, Texas -- MaCio Teague scored 19 points, Freddie Gillespie had 17 points and 13 rebounds and No. 18 Baylor defeated No. 12 Arizona 63-58 on Saturday for the Wildcats' first loss.

They loudly chanted ''U of A'' before the Baylor introductions but had a hard time getting into the game early, with Arizona giving up a 15-0 run and shooting 33 percent in the first half.

The Wildcats, whose 52-game home winning streak was stopped by Baylor last December, did enough to stay close and had the fans chanting several times in the second half.

Arizona finally got the deficit under six by scoring five points on one possession to get within 57-56 with less than two minutes remaining. Jemarl Baker Jr. hit a 3 as a foul was called and Zeke Nnaji made both free throws.

Teague, who was 9 of 10 on free throws, made a pair at the other end, then blocked a 3-point attempt by Nico Mannion, who led the Wildcats with 15 points. Leading by four, Baylor got another block from Gillespie in the final minute.

Nnaji scored 12 for Arizona, which made just two of 18 3-pointers after coming in sixth in the nation at 43% shooting from long range. The last miss came from Josh Green with a chance to tie in the final seconds.

The Bears (7-1) started hot in the fourth-ever Top 25 matchup in Waco but cooled off while Arizona simply stayed cold. Baylor shot 30% to 27% for the Wildcats, who came in fourth in the nation in scoring at 87.1 points per game.

Baylor is Announcing Recruit Commitments With Muppet Videos .
Baylor's football team had a great year in 2019. Head coach Matt Rhule led his team to a top-10 ranking and gave Oklahoma a run for their money in the Big 12 Championship Game despite having to use three QBs throughout the contest. They earned a spot in the Sugar Bowl against Georgia on New Year's Day for their efforts. But college football does not sleep, and Rhule's staff has been working all year to secure recruits to try and continue to build the program for next year and beyond. Baylor announced all of their recruits via their official Twitter account on Wednesday morning, using... muppets?Mauler from #bEASTTexas ?@doitallbigmo#20Belowpic.twitter.
