Today's DBR will be rather short because I have a ton of homework and I can't bring myself to talk too much about about whatever that was that happened last night.

Before we get to the In Season stuff, some good news. Lache Seastrunk competed in the All Star Football Challenge last night at Jerry World. Naturally, he tore it up.

In Season: Men's and Women's Basketball

"What is this I don't even?" That was my reaction every time I looked over at my television and saw the team in white turnover yet another ball. Other than Rico, nobody on the team even seems to be trying; they look lethargic out there. Whatever team decided to show up for conference play, it is not the same team that played Syracuse down to the wire. Despite poor defense, mediocre free throw shooting, and SEVENTEEN turnovers, Baylor had a chance to win this one with a buzzer-beater. Kenny Chery gave a great effort as he drove down the court, but, to paraphrase the announcer, "He took one too many dribbles" and Baylor failed to get off the game winning shot. Déjà vu?

The game did produce this though:
