Baylor Football kicks off spring camp today and practices will continue until the spring game, scheduled this year for April 6th. In David Ubben's breakdown of what to look for out of this spring he highlights the defense (will it continue to look like the end of last season), the offense (any receiving threats? quarterback?) and Lache Seastrunk (will he back up his Heisman claim?). You can stay updated on spring practice news through the 2013 Spring Football Storystream here on ODB.
The Baylor Lady Bears head to West Virginia for the first time as a Big 12 conference match, defending their 16-0 Big 12 record against the 17-10 (9-7) Mountaineers. If the Lady Bears can finish the season without a loss, they would become the first Big 12 team to post a perfect conference record twice, and twice in a row. Tomorrow's game will be played at 6:00 PM CT and will be televised on FSN (Fox Sports Southwest in Texas).
Baylor Men's Basketball is still clinging to their NCAA tournament hopes after a close win at West Virginia, and tomorrow's game against Kansas State is a must win, according to Yahoo Sports columnist Brad Evans. Though the Bears lost by 20 to K-State in Manhattan, with improved defense and a continued high level of play from Pierre Jackson could make this match much closer.
Baylor Baseball will get a taste of a major league ballpark this weekend in the Astros Foundation College Classic, held at Minute Maid Park in Houston. The Bears will play three games across this weekend, facing Cal, UH, and 12th-ranked Rice in that order. Baylor walked off against Pepperdine last Tuesday after coming back from a 4-0 deficit, and a win over Rice would be the 3rd win in a 6 game span against a ranked opponent.
20th ranked Baylor Softball is in Tempe, Arizona this weekend for the Wilson/Demarini Invitational, and start their weekend today with a 10:00 AM game against UNC.

Other teams participating in the tournament are UNC, North Dakota, East Carolina, Binghampton, and Arizona State.
