There's not a ton out there today, it being a Tuesday and all.
The Lady Bears took down the Tarleton TexAnns 92-49 last night in their second and final exhibition game, without star senior Brittney Griner. Despite some early sloppy play, Baylor looked solid behind junior guard Odyssey Sims and senior post Brooklyn Pope, who scored a team-high 16 points. Despite jokes from coach Kim Mulkey about "redshirting" Griner, the game-changing center should be back for the Lady Bears' first regular season game this Friday at noon against Lamar, which will be televised on FSSW.
The Baylor Soccer team will travel to Arizona State for the first round of the NCAA tournament, despite being a 3rd seed and conference champions. The Bears (17-1-4) hoped to host the first round here in Waco, but will face the Sun Devils (10-8-2) in Tempe on Friday, November 9th.
Baylor Football travels to Norman, Oklahoma to face the Oklahoma Sooners this Saturday at 2:30 PM, with an eye towards repeating last year's upset win (which was thought to have cemented former quarterback Robert Griffin II's Heisman statement). Hopefully the Baylor defense will look more like the second half of the Kansas game rather than the entire Iowa State game.
Finally, "sailgating" might become an actual thing if Baylor student Bryan Carter gains approval for his riverboat enterprise, entitled the Brazos Queen II. The junior entrepreneurship student hopes to have his 120-foot riverboat fill a void left by the deterioration and removal of the Brazos Belle, and looks to give river tours and be available to rent for private events.
