When the Baylor men’s basketball team hit the floor for Friday’s season-opening practice, there was no Cory Jefferson, Isaiah Austin, Brady Heslip or Gary Franklin.
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Maybe you shouldn't take a team to Roscoe's during the NCAA tournament.
Second-seeded Wisconsin extended its stay in Anaheim Friday afternoon with a 69-52 win over No. 6 Baylor. 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...
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Baylor guard Gary Franklin was so happy to be back home in Southern California ... he slept.
Franklin was in a "food coma" thanks to the team meal he and his mates had at a Southern California staple, Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles upon arrival Tuesday night in preparation for their NCAA tournament Sweet 16 matchup with Wisconsin on Thursday...
WACO, Texas - Baylor coach Scott Drew stood outside the media interview room at the Ferrell Center collecting his thoughts.
It was Feb. 4 and his team had just suffered its seventh loss in eight games, this one by 17 points to Kansas as part of a 2-8 start in Big 12 play.
Before Drew entered the room to answer questions about what wasn't working, why and what he could do to fix...
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...
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...
Brady Heslip scored a season-high 20 points to help Baylor beat No. 8 Oklahoma State 76-70 on Saturday and end a five-game losing streak.
Rico Gathers scored 14 points, Gary Franklin scored all 11 of his points in the second half and Cory Jefferson had 11 points and 13 rebounds for Baylor (14-7, 2-6 Big 12), which greatly improved its fading NCAA tournament hopes. The Bears had...

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...
Juwan Staten made a reverse layup with 3.1 seconds left and West Virginia held on to beat Baylor 66-64 on Tuesday night.
The Mountaineers (12-9, 4-4 Big 12) had gone nearly 5 minutes without scoring, blowing an eight-point lead in the process, before Staten drove the baseline and under the basket before making the game-winning shot. He finished with a game-high 15 points and nine...
