Daily Bears Report 02.01.2013 (Happy Birthday, Baylor!)

USA TODAY Sports

168 years ago today, Baylor University was chartered in Independence, TX by the Republic of Texas.

Nothing really happened in Baylor sports yesterday, of course, except for Andrew Billings is or is not or may be or who knows announcing his decision on either Monday or Tuesday. Currently, it looks like Tuesday shall be the day of deciding for the talented DT from Waco.

Baylor Stadium is beginning to take more shape on the banks of the Brazos, and in case you missed it, the two video boards seen in every sketch of the project are now one. This "Usrsatron" would be the 12th biggest board in the nation, in a stadium smaller than most.

A couple of teams are travelling today, with 15th-ranked Women's Tennis heading down to Gainesville, FL to face top-ranked Florida in their first away match of the season tomorrow. The Lady Bears are 3-0 on the season, with wins over Florida State and Texas Tech.

Baylor Track and Field is also on the road, splitting the team for both the Nebraska and Notre Dame Invitationals. Baylor has 8 individual marks among the nation's best this season, including Tiffani McReynold's 8:10 time in the 60 meter hurdles, which is the second best time in the country.

Baylor's Isaiah Austin was named to the 2013 Integris Wayman Tisdale Award Midseason Watch List by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association, one of 12 players to be listed. Austin is averaging 14.8 points and 9.4 rebounds a game so far this season. Also making lists is Cory Jefferson, who the Dallas Morning News names as the Big 12's best power forward.
