Baylor-John Brown Preview and Game Thread

The Bears host John Brown at 3:30

NCAA Basketball: Jackson State at Baylor Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

Baylor takes on John Brown, an NAIA school from Arkansas, at 3:30 today. The game is at the Ferrell Center.

You can watch this game on a number of Fox regional affiliates. The game airs on Fox Sports Southwest-Plus, and it’s on a number of other Fox channels, including Fox Sports Midwest.

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.
