Charleston Classic Game 1: Baylor Bears 84, Boston College Eagles 74

Cooper Neill

After going into halftime down 2, Baylor responded in the second half and secured a hard-fought victory against Boston College on the strength of Pierre Jackson's 31 points and 6 assists.

It wasn't as easy as the Bears probably expected it to be, but Baylor came away with the victory today against Boston College, whose bid for an upset was spearheaded by the unbelievable Ryan Anderson. Baylor had no answer early for Anderson, and his 19 points in the first half showed it, but they were able to slow him down somewhat in the second half.

Pierre Jackson led the way for the Bears with 31 points on 10/16 shooting from the field and 5/6 from the line to go with 6 assists. Most impressively, he was 6/11 from 3-point land for the day. His backcourt partner-in-crime Brady Heslip struggled by comparison and by his own standards, scoring only 10 points on 2/7 shooting (and 2/2 from the FT line). Isaiah Austin started slow but picked it up in the second half, finishing with 16 points (7/12) and 9 rebounds. After two dominating performances to start the season, Cory Jefferson went mostly unnoticed and only made one of his four shots for 3 points. He did have 5 rebounds, but it wasn't the Cory we'd come to expect based on the previous two games.

Before anyone asks, Baylor's next game in the tournament will be tomorrow morning at 11:30 against the Colorado Buffaloes. Boy if that isn't a ridiculously short turnaround.
