Daily Bears Report 02.04.2013

Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sport

It's already February in this crazy new year of 2013!

The Lady Bears started off February well with a win over Oklahoma State on Saturday, though Kim Mulkey wasn't as happy with the 81-62 win as some would think. Brittney Griner had 30 points, 10 rebounds, and a career-high seven assists, while Odyssey Sims had 15 points and nine assists. Baylor actually trailed by five in the first half before going on a decisive 18-2 run to put the game out of reach.

Baylor Men's Basketball didn't start off the month quite as auspiciously, falling to the "Hilton Magic" and Iowa State 79-71 for their third conference loss. Pierre Jackson scored 23 points in the loss, and AJ Walton's 2 assists put him at the 400 assist mark for his career, only the 5th player in Baylor history to achieve said feat.

Baylor Football garnered their third commitment for the 2014 class this weekend after Junior Day. Willis, Texas wide receiver Chris Platt won the 4A state championship in the 400-meter in 2012, and looks to bring more speed to the notoriously fast-paced Baylor offense. The coach behind that offense, Art Briles, is the subject of a KWTX feature video this weekend.

Baylor Volleyball officially finished out their season with an awards banquet this weekend, honoring various members of the team for achievements both academic and athletic. The Lady Bears look towards the 2013 season and the maturing of their strong freshman class.

Baylor Track and Field finished out both the Nebraska and Notre Dame Invitationals strong, with senior Skylar White posting the winning distance in the shot-put, her second-best distance of the season. Baylor men's 4x400 meter relay ran their best time of the season without two of their regular runners and the women's team came in third in their race.

7th-ranked Equestrian (7-3) defeated New Mexico State in their first competition of the spring season, 14-5. The Bears are on a 4-match winning streak, and hope to continue that against TCU on the 8th and the 9th.

Baylor Men's Tennis dropped their first match of the season against 22nd-ranked Tulsa this weekend, losing to the Golden Hurricanes 5-2. The first away match of the season revealed several issues to work on, and coach Matt Knoll says they'll be addressed before the Bears' three-game homestand, starting February 9th.

Baylor Women's Golf heads to Florida for the Hurricane Invitational to open spring competition today. The 23-ranked Lady Bears look to build on last year's 16th place NCAA Championship finish, the best result in program history.
