Baseball:

If you missed it, Baylor baseball picked up some hardware. From Baylorbears.com:

Baylor baseball garnered a league-high 15 end-of-season Big 12 Conference honors, including Steve Rodriguez being named Big 12 Coach of the Year and Montana Parsons earning Co-Big 12 Newcomer of the Year. BU also landed a co-league-high 13 players on the All-Big 12 teams (West Virginia also had 13).

John Lowe of the Smoking Musket has a preview of Baylor-West Virginia:

Baylor has been heating up over the past few weeks, so just prepare for a close one.

Hoops:

Four Lady Bears are on WNBA rosters. From KXXV:

A Baylor women’s basketball program record four Lady Bears are included on WNBA rosters this season, including Brittney Griner, Alexis Jones, Alexis Prince and Odyssey Sims.

Football:

Tony Adame of Baylor 247 has a look at the UTSA game, and UTSA football, via an interview with 247’s UTSA insider (free):

I think the strength of the team this year is defense. They'll play a 3-4 or a 4-3, it just depends on who is up or down at the rush end position.

Ian Boyd has another great look at the Baylor defense:

The #RhuleofLaw culture is designed to field teams that consistently play physical team defense. They’re regularly practicing tackling, pursuit, disguises, coverages, varying run fits, etc. Having a practice culture that forces players to develop physicality then allows Rhule to go grab raw, athletic players that may or may not have much size or technique yet and fashion them into good football players.
