Daily Bears Report 11.19.2012

So from what I've seen, campus is still overjoyed about how things went on Saturday when, just in case you didn't know, Baylor upset former no. 1 Kansas State with a solid team performance to move to 5-5 on the season and one step closer to the third consecutive bowl game. This makes the second time in as that Baylor has upended the BCS rankings in the third weekend of November, last year upsetting Oklahoma and this year ensuring that Kansas State will not go to the national championship.

After being upset by Stanford on Friday, the Lady Bears took their next two matches against UT-Martin and Hawaii convincingly. Baylor beat the Skyhawks 82-67 behind a solid performance from Brittney Griner, including her 8th career dunk. Griner passed Tennessee's Candace Parker for the all time NCAA record with the right-handed dunk seven minutes into the game. On Sunday, the Lady Bears routed Hawaii's Rainbow Wahine 77-42, and junior Mackenzie Robertson scored a career high 23 points, making 7 of 8 three point shots. The Lady Bears return to Waco on November 23 to face Liberty.

Baylor Men's Basketball defeated St. John's 97-78 on Sunday to wrap up the Charleston Classic with a 2-1 record after Friday's loss to Colorado. Brady Heslip scored a career high 29 points, including 8 three-pointers to lead the Bears to a 19 point victory. The Bears return to Waco to play the College of Charleston on November 24th at 7:00 PM.

Baylor Soccer finished their season in a loss on penalty kicks to North Carolina in the round of 16 on Sunday, after fighting to a 1-1 draw through two overtimes. The Bears' historic season ends at 19-1-5, including an undefeated record at home and a conference championship.
