Semi-busy weekend! Let's jump into it.
Baylor went all banana sandwich on the Oklahoma Lady Sooners to advance to the Big 12 Tournament final.
Oklahoma City, Okla. - Attendance: 4,591
Fun anecdote from Smoaky:
During last mtg between OU and #Baylor, Sooners player told Alexis Jones, "you're not as good as I thought," she has 9 in 1st-Qtr., 24-12 BU— David Smoak (@DavidSmoak) March 6, 2016
Heheh. Alexis Jones went on to have 19 points and 11 assists. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Senior night did not go quite as planned. The end of the game showed an emotional Rico Gathers, directly after fouling out, becoming emotional on the bench.
No, the Ferrell Center finale was not what anybody hoped for. But there is a lot of basketball left out of which to craft memories.
The Big 12 Tournament starts on Thursday. Baylor will play Texas at 11:30am. The game will be shown on ESPN2.
Taurean Prince was named All-Big 12 First Team, while Rico Gathers and Johnathan Motley made Third Team. Lester Medford, for some odd reason, was tagged with Honorable Mention. (Coaches vote on these awards.)
After starting strong with a win over University of Houston, the Bears dropped the next two contests. It wasn't exactly a pretty contest, seeing as it featured 5 Houston homeruns and an 11-2 final score. The Bears are (6-5) overall.
I know I left a few off a couple of other things , so help me out in the comments.
