Kansas State head coach Bruce Weber argues a call in the first half of action against Kansas at Bramlage Coliseum in Manhattan, Kan., on Feb. 5. Bo Rader/Wichita Eagle/TNS

Even before his team lost in Allen Fieldhouse, Kansas State coach Bruce Weber was gazing past the high-profile showdown with rival Kansas to a crucial matchup with Baylor.

He didn’t mention it to his team, of course. But Weber made it clear to his staff.

Win or lose against the Jayhawks — and the No. 16 Wildcats on Monday night lost in decisive fashion — the game against the Bears could make or break their Big 12 title hopes. They remain tied with Texas Tech for the conference lead with three games to go, both teams a game ahead of Kansas, and holding serve at home against the up-and-coming Bears is vitally important.
