Baylor outlasted West Virginia last night to take a much needed win from the Mountaineers, 65-62. Isaiah Austin, Pierre Jackson, and A.J. Walton all scored in double digits, though sharpshooter Brady Heslip was cold from three-point range, finishing the night with 4 points. Cory Jefferson led the team with 11 rebounds, though his production was limited by foul trouble, and Austin led the team with 21 points, 6 of which came from 3-point range. The Bears return home this Saturday to face Kansas State in a nationally televised game on ESPN2 at 6:00 PM CT.

Adidas has developed some new uniforms for the Bears, should they make the NCAA tournament, and they are certainly bright. A carry-over from the "Electricity" uniforms of last season, this year's iteration involves sleeves.

Odyssey Sims was named as a finalist for the Nancy Lieberman Award for the second straight year, and is a possible front runner for the award, which honors the best NCAA DI point guard. Sims is considered by many national analysts to be the country's top on-ball defender, with sharp distribution skills and the fourth best national assist/turnover ratio.

Both Sims and senior Brittney Griner are on the watch lists for the Naismith Trophy and the U.S. Basketball Writers Association's Ann Meyers Drysdale Award, two top awards for women's collegiate basketball players. Griner won both awards last season, and has the chance to become only the 6th person to repeat as the Naismith honoree. Fans can help support Griner and Sims starting March 25th by texting in a vote, and more details will be released later.

Baylor Women's Tennis was blanked 4-0 at no. 6 Texas A&M yesterday, falling to 4-8 on the season. This was only the second time this season the Lady Bears have been shut out, and they hope to bounce back against Clemson in Clemson on March 8th.
