GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — MaCio Teague and Devonte Bandoo scored 16 points apiece and No. 1 Baylor extended its winning steak to 16 with a 72-61 victory over Florida in the Big 12/SEC Challenge. The Bears improved to 6-1 in the annual inter-conference series and assured themselves another week atop The Associated Press poll. Baylor’s victory also gave the Big 12 an even split (5-5) in the daylong series. Keyontae Johnson led Florida with 20 points. Andrew Nembhard added 16 points and eight assists for the Gators. But he missed more shots than he made.
