Basketball season is drawing near. How close, you ask? Well, media days are here! Baylor’s Scott Drew, Ish Wainright, Al Freeman, and Johnathan Motley made their way up to Kansas City to chat with the media, take selfies, answer Twitter questions, and just have a grand ole time.

First, I want you all to see and understand that Ish Wainright is the leader of this team. The sole senior, he’s there to stand apart and show the youngins how it’s done. He bears the crown of responsibility and carries the sword of judgement. He also got the dope neon glasses. With age comes privilege.
Scott Drew had this to say about my favorite Bear to hype four years running:
We’ve known Ish has been a charismatic presence off the floor since he arrived in Waco. My hopes are high his impact on the floor will start to reach similar levels.
The guys are here to take over Twitter. Submit questions using #AskIsh, #AskAl, and #AskMot. pic.twitter.com/HDMGJkWqgo— Baylor Basketball (@BaylorMBB) October 25, 2016
I mean, a true leader.
The Baylor Family. Walking on the court and seeing the loyal fans that have been around since day 1. https://t.co/qZmoOUTxqj— Baylor Basketball (@BaylorMBB) October 25, 2016
And let’s hope that the Baylor Family shows up in support.
There really isn’t too much to take away from the media day just yet. Where football media days tend to be serious with a well-honed media, basketball tends to have a lighter atmosphere, easier questions, and a friendlier media.

We’ll try to update this post as Baylor releases more videos and interviews.
Ish delivered, y’all. Also, Holly Rowe is one of the great people.
Here also is Baylor’s Behind the Scenes video, featuring great dancing and the most magisterial sic’em you’ve ever seen.
