Daily Bears Report 03.18.2013

Despite the fact that Baylor beat a 1-seed by 23, they will be sitting out the Big Dance. However, Baylor will be the second seed in the NIT and will host Long Beach State here in Waco on this Wednesday at 8:00 PM (ESPN2). Hopefully the Ferrell Center will be full to support the seniors in one last game here in Waco. If the Bears defeat Long Beach, they will play the winner of Arizona State/Detroit. For the first time since 1977, there is not a single Texas team in the NCAA tournament, and only the Bears and Stephen F. Austin will be participating in postseason play. Looking for the full NIT bracket? Look no further.

The Lady Bears will be watching the selection show tonight to find out the composition of their bracket, as they are almost certainly guaranteed the top seed in the NCAA tournament. Baylor will have had almost two weeks off by their first game in Waco, but Kim Mulkey said that she was happy with how practices were looking on a radio interview yesterday aired on 1660 AM.

Baylor Baseball finished their weekend up splitting a doubleheader on Saturday, winning two of their three total games in Houston. The Bears defeated New Orleans 8-3 in the first game, but lost to Houston 3-2 in the night edition. Baylor is two games below .500 with two games to go before the Big 12 season begins.

2014 receiver KD Cannon still has Baylor among his top choices, according to the West Virginia Rivals site. A good bit of this article is above the paywall, including Cannon's favorable opinion of strength and conditioning coach Kaz Kazadi, as well as his recognition of Baylor's ability to develop NFL level receivers.

Baylor Women's Tennis won their second Big 12 match, defeating West Virginia 6-1 in Morganstown. The Lady Bears opened conference play 2-0 for the first time since 2010, and look to continue their winning streak (though not in conference) when they host no. 11 Miami at the Hurd Tennis Center on Saturday.

Baylor Women's Golf finished 10th at the Gator Invitational this past weekend, shooting 21-over-par as a team. Hayley Davis led the team with a 13th place individual finish at 8-over-par.
