So I was planning on doing a Tweets post of sorts after tonight's win, but I can't embed tweets right now for whatever reasons.  More's the pity.

Anyway, Baylor just swept Iowa State on the season with a 100-91 overtime win in Waco.  Nobody will call it a defensive masterpiece considering we gave up 91, but since we scored 100, I don't care!

Johnathan Motley led the Bears with 27 points (tying a career high), 10 rebounds, and 4 blocks.  He was one of SIX Baylor players to score in double figures.  Iowa State had 3 players with 20+ points in Niang, Nader, and Morris.

I wish I could embed tweets to show you Taurean Prince's two huge dunks, but I can't, and that stinks.  You'll just have to take my word for it about how amazing they were.

Here's the box score:
