Especially when they're full of sports and victory.

Weekend in Review

MBB Routs Texas

It was UT's worst loss of the season as Kenny Chery and Royce O'Neale combined for 43 points to power a valiant offensive and defensive effort that may have been the team's most complete game so far this season. Even if Texas's shooting hadn't been abysmal at several points throughout the game, this one still would have been in the bag. Also worth noting was the fact that Lester Medford had seven assists. Baylor is 9-0 this season in games where Medford has five or more assists. In this way, Medford resembles another diminutive Baylor guard: Pierre Jackson, who attracted attention for his ludicrous scoring ability but spent most of his time setting up his teammates.

Baylor hosts TCU on Wednesday and goes on the road to take on West Virginia on Saturday. Neither matchup is easy. Such is life in the Big 12.

WBB Survives Kansas

"Survival" is probably a pretty drastic word to use here, but that's almost what it feels like when the Lady Bears win by less than 15 these days. Read all about the win here:

Thanks, Lewis!

Women's Tennis Quadruple Shutout

That sounds violent, doesn't it? Baylor shut out Pitt, Texas-Pan American, Incarnate Word, and No. 25 Tulsa over the weekend in a streak that speaks to the durability as well as the raw talent of the team.

DBR 'bout to get crazy.

Here in the next two weeks, softball, baseball, men's and women's golf, and acrobatics and tumbling are all beginning. That means that the amount of content in the average Daily Bears Report will double. Despite the absence of competitive football, spring is by far the busiest athletic season, and I think I speak for the rest of the ODB staff when I say that we appreciate your continued support of the site throughout the year. It doesn't matter if you're in Waco or Germany; there are big things going on at Baylor right now, and we're going to tell you about all of them.
