05.24.2012 Daily Bears Report

Things are a bit sparse today, with only 3 Baylor sports still in competition.

Baylor Baseball continued Big 12 Tournament play today with a 3-2 walk-off loss to OU. Baylor led until the bottom of the 7th, when a solo homer for OU tied it 2-2. This being a double elimination tournament, Baylor Baseball will play Kansas State again tomorrow for the chance to play OU on Saturday. The Bears finish the regular season ranked 6th in the BaseballAmerica rankings, and are projected to host TCU, SHSU and PV A&M in a NCAA Regional. Baylor's RPI (what many of the NCAA decisions are based on) is 4th in the nation, currently, behind only Florida, Florida State, and UCLA. There's some nice praise for Baylor Baseball in this Big 12-centered article from the Austin-American Statesman. For those curious, Baylor Baseball's largest inning this season was the 8-run 7th in a 15-3 win over UCLA on 2.24. EDIT: BaylorBears.com's game story is here.

Baylor Men's Tennis' season is over, with freshman Mate Zsiga falling to University of Georgia senior Ignacio Taboada in three sets on Wednesday. Women's Tennis is still going strong, with senior trio Nina Secerbegovic, Sona Novakova, and Diana Nakic advancing on Wednesday to the NCAA National Women's Singles Championship Round of 32, held today. Nina Secerbegovic also began NCAA Doubles action today with partner Ema Burgic.

Baylor Track and Field is currently competing in the NCAA West Preliminaries. Per their Twitter account, Baylor has two athletes (Christina Holland, 400 H; Skylar White, shot-put) through to the 2nd round, and one (Philip Raaf, 400H) waiting to see if his time qualifies.

Baylor Volleyball's 2012 freshman class was ranked 6th in the nation by PrepVolleyball.com.
