Baylor freshman Isaiah Austin missed the second game of the season for the 19th-ranked Bears.
Austin was out Sunday against Jackson State after he sprained his right ankle during his impressive collegiate debut two days earlier.
The 7-foot-1 center scored 22 points in 17 minutes Friday in Baylor's 99-77 win over Lehigh. Austin rolled his ankle early in the second half when he came down on the foot of a defender after making a turnaround jumper.

The Bears are playing five games in the first 10 days of the season, next at the Charleston Classic. They open that tournament Thursday against Boston College.
