The Big 12’s coaches have voted, and they don’t expect much from the Bears. They’v slotted Baylor 9th in the 10 team league.
Baylor’s spot in the poll isn’t too shocking. The Bears lost four huge seniors: Manu Lecomte, Jo Lual-Acuil, Terry Maston and Nuni Omot. Baylor will also be without Jake Lindsey this season, as he takes either a medical redshirt.
But Baylor has some hope. The Bears have added Makai Mason, Mario Kegler, Jared Butler, Darius Allen and Devonte Bandoo.
The last time Baylor was predicted to finish this low was during the 2009-2010 season. That Baylor team advanced to the Elite Eight. Hopefully this team can shock some folks as well.
