Baylor earns No. 6 seed in NCAA Tournament, faces Nebraska on Friday

Baylor started 2-8 in Big 12 Conference play, but ended the season winning 10 of the last 12 games and making a run to the Big 12 Championship game. “I think having our backs against the wall [has helped],” Baylor coach Scott Drew said. “It’s basically been do-or-die and playoff basketball for a while.

It’s Not Easy Being Green

As Kermit the Frog sang “It’s Not Easy Being Green”, or in the cases of Oregon and Baylor it’s not easy being green and yellow.  The Ducks and Bears have to be two of the more disappointing teams in the country as we approach March. At the beginning of the year both teams had high expectations not only in the Pac-12 and Big 12 respectively but also in the NCAA Tournament...

No. 7 Baylor loses 87-72 to No. 9 Iowa State

Twenty turnovers against Syracuse, 19 more against Iowa State. It's strikingly clear to Baylor coach Scott Drew why his team lost those games.
