There are a number of Baylor sports going on right now, but the amount of quality analysis anyone outside the program can offer is limited. For most fans, the long wait for football season has officially begun.

There's news to be reported, just not a ton of it. Today's DBR has some less-than-stellar news in particular regarding baseball and football recruiting. Let's get to it.

In-Season News

Baseball fell to No. 8 Texas, 4-0. The loss resulted in a sweep for Texas. The Bears didn't look completely lifeless over the weekend, but failed to capitalize on opportunities and were plagued by errors at key moments. How they bounce back from the sweep will help define the rest of the season.

Men's Golf placed fifth at the Augusta Invitational. The Bears shot even-par 288 in Sunday's final round to finish in fifth place at 3-under-par in the 3M Augusta Invitational. They extended their streak of top-five finishes to six straight tournaments, covering the entire spring season.

Track & Field wrapped the Florida Relays. On the final day of the meet, the Baylor track and field team was led by its 4x400-meter relays teams, which each recorded season-best times on Saturday at the James G. Pressly Stadium. Baylor is fast. It is fast in every way possible.

Women's Golf won the DAC Invitational. The Baylor women's golf team won the Dallas Athletic Club Invitational with a two-round score of 15-over 591. Sunday's final round was cancelled due to lightning in the Dallas area. The tournament title is Baylor's first since claiming the Hurricane Invitational championship on Feb. 5, 2013.

Women's Tennis downed No. 69 Kansas State, 5-1. The 16th-ranked Baylor women's tennis team remained undefeated in Big 12 Conference play after defeating No. 69 Kansas State, 5-1, on Sunday in Manhattan, Kan.

Out-of-Season News

Odyssey Sims won the Lieberman Award. The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced today that Odyssey Sims from Baylor University is the winner of the 2014 Nancy Lieberman Award, the national award for the best point guard in collegiate women's basketball.

Worth noting that volleyball had a number of wins in spring play this weekend, even though there are no official stories to chronicle the dominations.

Public Service Announcement

If you put Game of Thrones spoilers on this website, I will rummage through my mess of a dorm room for my Ban Hammer, and I will knock you all the way to Asshai with it. I'm reading the books and I'm behind. You have been warned. Have a lovely day.
