The Badgers, a technical, athletic team, excelled in all of the facets that the flashy, free-playing Bears could not. Wisconsin (29-7) will play in the Elite Eight Saturday at the Honda...

Baylor's 'extraordinary' season has left lives changed

WACO, Texas - Baylor coach Scott Drew stood outside the media interview room at the Ferrell Center collecting his thoughts.

Does K-State still have some work to do to make NCAA tourney? Probably not but ...

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- The one thing Kansas State coach Bruce Weber didn't want to have happen is for his troops to create any doubt in the minds of the NCAA tournament selection committee. One would think Kansas State's credentials for a tourney bid are solid: A fifth-place finish in the Big 12, 20 wins overall, seven wins over top 50 teams in the RPI. But after another distressing...

Video: Oklahoma State Takes Baylor To Overtime After Awful Bears Turnover

Tonight’s Big 12 matchup between Baylor and Oklahoma State has been back and forth all-night, and apparently Baylor wanted to keep the action going. Up three points with the ball and under five seconds remaining in the game, Baylor guard Gary Franklin threw an errant in-bounds pass, which was corralled by freshman Cowboy Leyton Hammonds, who stepped up and drilled a game-tying...

Baylor Gets Back on Track With Big Win Over No. 8 Oklahoma State

Saturday's game against No. 8 Oklahoma State was a big one for the Baylor Bears. After starting the season looking like the team to beat in the Big 12 and winning 12 of their first 13 they dropped six of their next seven. In roughly three weeks they went from being on top of the world to on the outside looking in. Needless to say they needed a big win to get back on track--and they...
