Lady Bears Crush Oklahoma, Inch Closer to Big 12 Title
Pretty impressive stat line by Baylor PG Niya Johnson: 17 assists, 0 turnovers in 30 mins as BU beats Oklahoma 89-66.— Chuck Carlton (@ChuckCarltonDMN) February 12, 2015
Niya Johnson's ridiculousness was one of the driving forces behind Baylor's domination of the consensus second-best team in the Big 12. With that kind of performance, it's difficult to envision a world without a Baylor championship and a top seed for the tournament later in the semester.
Baseball Season Starts Tomorrow
Baylor Baseball's season begins tomorrow evening at 6:30 against No. 13 Cal Poly. A series win would say a lot about what kind of team we're going to have this year, but a loss wouldn't be overly discouraging either considering the Mustangs' lofty expectations. Several returning players and some new signings should give Steve Smith plenty of opportunities in non-conference play. Hopefully Baylor Baseball can return to their old winning ways after two down seasons.
Tennis at ITA Indoor Team Championship
Men's Tennis takes on Duke tomorrow in Chicago at the ITA Indoor Team Championship. This weekend will be the team;s toughest competition so far this season and a couple of wins would be huge and propel them further along the path to Nationals in Waco.
Women's Tennis at Rice
No. 6 Baylor travels to No. 35 Rice tomorrow to defend their lofty national ranking. After beating multiple top 10 teams already this season, Baylor shouldn't have too much trouble with the Owls, but tennis is one of those sports where upsets are regular and overestimating your opponent can get you killed in a heartbeat. Good luck, ladies.
