It's October! One month until Homecoming!
In case you missed it: Our Daily Bears' coverage of the 70-63 loss to WVU on Saturday.
All the links you could possibly want are in Sunday's DBR. Mark has an immediate reaction and loads of thoughts about the game, and the defensive situation. Baylor fell out of the top 25 (and WVU moved up) despite putting up 63 (sixty-three!) points on the then-9th ranked team in the nation. Here's the always excellent Sic 'Em Sports video highlights as well as all the injury news that was findable. Finally, the hilariously...awful animated drive chart from the game. This is a game that quite possibly will go down as the worst defensive game, ever. Worse than the Alamo Bowl.
Baylor Volleyball fell 3-1 to (15) Kansas State Saturday night, despite taking the first set 25-18. The Bears are now 13-5, but 0-3 in conference play. Junior Zoe Adom had a season high 15 kills in the loss, and Baylor's .231 hitting percentage is the highest in a loss this year. The Bears have a week off before playing Kansas in Lawrence on Saturday, October 6th.
Baylor Women's Cross Country tied for eighth at the Roy Griak Invitational Saturday, with sophomores Rachel Johnson and Erin Hegarty both finishing in the top 30. The Bears have the next weekend off before sending seven runners to the NCAA Pre-Nationals.
Ema Burgic clinched one of eight spots in the 64 player qualifying draw for the ITA/Riviera All-American Championships with her straight-set victory yesterday over 16th-seeded and 113th-ranked Erin Stephens of Mississippi. Burgic will not play again until Tuesday, and will need to win her next three matches in a row to qualify for the main draw.
Rober Verzaal won his back draw match over Southern Illinois' Johnny Rigby at the ITA All-American, despite a slow start. His next match will be the qualifying doubles draw, where he will partner with Marko Krickovic. Mate Zsinga will partner with Julian Lenz to also represent the Bears in the qualifying doubles draw.
