Daily Bears Report 10.22.2012

Football game? What football game? Baylor Basketball starts this Thursday! Who can think about football games, now?

Speaking of Baylor Basketball, the Bears are number 10 on NBC Sports College Basketball Talk Top 25 Countdown. Baylor plays their first game here at the Ferrell Center on Thursday night in an exhibition game against Abilene Christian University at 7:00 PM.

(20) Baylor Soccer defeated Iowa State on Sunday to remain perfect at home, and move to 13-1-4 on the season, 4-0-3 in conference. The Bears worked their 11th shutout of the season and tied their previous record. They have the opportunity to break their record with their last game of the regular season against TCU, this Friday at 7:00 PM here at Betty Lou Mays Soccer Field.

Baylor Volleyball beat West Virginia 3-0 for their first Big 12 sweep on Saturday afternoon at the Ferrell Center, and moved to 16-7, 3-5 on the season. Zoe Adom and Alyssa Dibbern both had double digit kills, and one of Dibbern's kills broke the West Virginia sports information director's computer. The Bears hit the road for a two-game trip, playing at (8) Texas and at Kansas State across the next week.

Baylor Tennis had a productive weekend, with women's tennis advancing Ema Burgic to the singles semifinals and the duo of Burgic and Jordaan Sanford to the doubles quarterfinals of the USTA/ITA Regional Championships held here at Baylor. Men's tennis advanced Marko Krickovic and Julian Lenz to the quarterfinals of the USTA/ITA Regional Championships held at the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center. Both teams look to advance even higher across play in the next few days.

Baylor Football lost to Texas, 56-50, and the rumblings for Coach Phil Bennett's head have increased, both on Twitter and from the general student population. Baylor still has to win three more games to become bowl eligible for the third year in a row, and the upcoming schedule is not exactly a comfort to Baylor football fans. It's pretty much impossible for Baylor to win the Big 12 and that can be laid right at the feet of the defense, which "struggled," to use a nicer word than "was nonexistant." Poor tackling and no takeaways are major problems, Will Parchman of the Waco Tribune posits, and this let Texas, despite a plethora of problems on their side, break Baylor's recent winning streak.
