1.04.2014 Saturday News / Links: Let's Talk about Shootyhoops!

Cooper Neill

I'm in a bit of a hurry this morning, so this will be short. Anyone with contributor access, feel free to expound here with new info. I'll update throughout the day.

We played basketball last night!  It went pretty well, apparently.  Baylor won 80-50 against Savannah State, hardly the strongest opponent in the world but still. Baylor's next game will be this Tuesday against the #13 Iowa St. Cyclones.  That's a rough opening test, to say the least, but someone had to do it.

If you try to tell me you expected Kenny Chery to be this good, you're a liar.  I think these stats are correct, but they may not be updated for last night.  I can't tell.
