Daily Bears Report 01.21.2013 (MLK Day)


Baylor MBB plays OSU today at 4:30 PM CT as a part of ESPN's Big Monday. After rolling over Hardin-Simmons University 107-38 on Saturday, the Bears return to conference play looking for their third straight win over the OSU Cowboys. All tickets are $10 today, so if you're in Waco there is absolutely no reason for you to not be there. This is also a "Happy Hour" game, though, this being Baylor, that only includes concession items, and not Baylor-unapproved beverages. (BearsIllustrated ($) preview here.)

The Baylor Lady Bears travel to Iowa this week after their hard-fought 76-58 victory over WVU last Saturday. In that win, senior Brittney Griner had her 50th career double-double, and was one block away from a triple-double and Odyssey Sims had 15 points and 7 assists. The Lady Bears have won 49 games in a row at the Ferrell Center, and hold the nation's longest active home winning streak.

15th-ranked Baylor women's tennis won both the singles and the doubles titles at the HEB Invitational this weekend at the Hawkins Indoor Tennis Center. Junior Megan Horter came away with the singles title while teammates sophomore Ema Burgic and freshman Victoria Kisialeva defeated SFA's pair for the doubles crown. Horter, in addition to her overall win, had a perfect weekend, defeating Auburn's Ashley Kitchen for the title.

15th-ranked Baylor men's tennis had a much different story this weekend, going 1-3 at the Sherwood Collegiate Cup in Thousand Oaks, California. Robert Verzaal had the lone win of the day for the Bears, who defeated UCLA's Seth Soler.

Baylor Football picked up a verbal commitment from JUCO offensive lineman Dionte Savage this weekend, filling the hole left by the reported decommitment of Irving High School offensive lineman Rami Hammad. Savage named previous Baylor success with lineman and the NFL draft as a part of his reason to come to Waco, as well as Baylor's highly-ranked business school.
