The Bears return to Floyd Casey this weekend to take on the ULM Warhawks in the final non-conference game of the season, and head coach Art Briles as well as members of the team met with the media yesterday in the regularly scheduled press conference. If you're pressed for time, the Dallas Morning News has five quotes from yesterdayelaborated. Mac Engel ignores the fact that SMU backed out of playing Baylor that first week and says that Briles needs to schedule "real teams" for the Bears to play in the first weeks of the season.
Women's tennis won a pair of titles at the Midland Invitational yesterday, with freshman Blair Shankle winning the consolation singles draw, and the duo of Shankle and sophomore Victoria Kisialeva defeating the 10th ranked pair in the nation on the way to the main draw doubles title. This is the first time since last April a Baylor duo has defeated a top-10 doubles team.
Men's basketball added seven games to its TV schedule, making this the second straight season that every game will be televised. The Bears are returning seven members of the team that won last year's NIT championship, including three starters, and will open the season against Colorado in Dallas, before returning home to play South Carolina.
