No. 12 Baylor absorbed a crushing defeat by Marquette early last week and faced a late deficit against then-No. 14 Gonzaga three days later. The 64-63 victory over Gonzaga lifted the spirits of Baylor (6-2), which was annihilated 96-70 in a road game against Marquette. Baylor still fell six spots in the latest AP Top 25 Poll, released Monday.
