Two former Baylor Bears made the Texas Sports Hall of Fame Ballot, per Brice Cherry of the Waco Tribune-Herald:
Two of Baylor’s best modern-era athletes are up for consideration for the Texas Sports Hall of Fame.The Hall of Fame revealed the ballot for the Class of 2017 Monday, and former Baylor baseball great Jason Jennings and former women’s basketball star Sophia Young-Malcolm made the cut.
Baylor is not playing Vanderbilt this season. The rationale is explained by the Tennessean:
Vanderbilt basketball coach Bryce Drew will not face his older brother, Baylor coach Scott Drew, this season, as their previously scheduled game will not be played.
Bryce Drew confirmed on Monday’s SEC coaches teleconference that the game has been taken off the schedule. He said it would be an awkward matchup for his coaching family, which also includes their father and former Valparaiso coach Homer Drew and Bryce's brother-in-law Casey Shaw, now a Vanderbilt assistant.
Wil London is faster than all of us and won another race. He has a shot to make the Olympics. The Waco Tribune-Herald had this description:
Little Wil had a big weekend.Baylor freshman Wil London claimed the 400-meter title at the USA Track and Field Junior Championships Sunday. The former Waco High sprinter ran 45.61 in the final, edging Missouri freshman Kahmari Montgomery (45.64) for the gold medal.
Per Robert Larkin at BON, several outlets believe Patrick Hudson will announce Thursday. Texas is apparently the favorite, but Hudson has not ruled out Baylor. Regardless of what he does, Hudson has not said anything negative about Baylor and has been a class act throughout recruitment. Hopefully he makes a surprising announcement and ends up at Baylor, but if not, we wish him well.
