Baylor Baseball picked up their first win of the season yesterday in the home opener, defeating Texas State 6-3. Despite the 5 errors made by the Bears, the Bobcats stranded 14 runners. Nathan Orf is starting the season on a hot streak, going 7-for-9 in his last two games, and led the team last night in hits, RBI, runs scored, and stolen bases. The Bears scored four runs in the second inning on five hits, including a double from Orf.
Baylor Men's Basketball hosts Iowa State tonight at 8:00 in a "must-win" game after their 20 point loss at Kansas State. The Bears are 8-1 all-time against the Cyclones in Waco and hope add their 8th conference win tonight, in front of a national TV audience on ESPNU. The Bears have to improve from their performance against K-State, and tonight's game could have an impact on potential NCAA tournament, as the season starts winding down.

The Lady Bears were "too much" for UConn on Monday night, powering through a tough game to add a 24th game to their new winning streak, and Brittney Griner's 3,000th point couldn't have come in a higher-profile game. As for the strangely hilarious photo that came from the pre-game coaches' talk, despite the strangeness, it seems to be only a joke between friends.
