Back 2 back games...let's get it! It's cold outside but we have fire in the Ferrell. BAYLOR v John Brown University 3:30 today. #WeAreMore pic.twitter.com/C7Gdr3vP7m— Paul Mills (@CoachMills) December 18, 2016
Baylor will win this one. John Brown is 9-4 on the season, but they fell to Oral Roberts 95-63. Baylor is significantly more talented than John Brown. This game is a good chance to get everyone some minutes.
The Associated Press reports:
Part of the explanation for Baylor's foray into competition against an NAIA opponent is that John Brown coach Jason Beschta is a former graduate assistant at Baylor. He earned a graduate degree in pedagogy from the school and served on Drew's staff early in Drew's tenure with the Bears.
"As a coach, you like to see your former staff do well and they've done such a great job," Drew said.
I’ll be watching to see how Nuni Omot plays, and to see if the Bears use some different lineups today.
