Into The Postseason
Baylor Men's Basketball
After their comeback win over Texas Tech on Friday evening, Baylor had to wait and hope for a better tournament seed. Unfortunately, both Oklahoma and Iowa State won, keeping the Bears down to a No. 4 seed in this week's Big 12 tournament. At least we get a first round bye- before facing West Virginia for the third time this season on Thursday.
The game is set for 11:30 a.m. CST on Thursday on ESPN2. Beating a team three times is difficult. Let's get to it.
In addition, three Baylor players made the All-Big 12 team. Rico Gathers earned first team honors, while Taurean Prince and Kenny Chery landed on the second team. Prince also earned Big 12 Sixth Man of the Year.
Baylor Women's Basketball
Nina Davis scored 25 points in 25 minutes against Oklahoma State to catapult the Lady Bears into the Big 12 title game. The Lady Bears face Texas for the Big 12 Tournament title tonight in Dallas. Baylor has beaten Texas twice this year.

Some convenient losses left Baylor in a very nice place before yesterday's contest against Memphis.
The only thing separating #5 @BaylorMTennis from the #2 spot in next week's rankings is a win over Memphis today. Playing singles 1st.— Bobby Knight (@College10s2day) March 8, 2015
FINAL: Baylor 4, Memphis 0. Bears get wins from Max Tchoutakian, Diego Galeano, Vince Schneider and Felipe Rios to earn victory.— BaylorMTennis (@BaylorMTennis) March 8, 2015
A swift shutout left little to chance. When the new ranking come out, Baylor should be the No. 2 program nationally, a ranking befitting a team that nearly took home an ITA national title a few short weeks ago only to be foiled by Oklahoma.
Baylor falls, 4-3, to UCLA as No. 23 Ema Burgic drops a 7-6(5), 7-6(6) decision to No. 3 Robin Anderson on court 1.— BaylorWTennis (@BaylorWTennis) March 7, 2015
The women didn't have as good of a time against UCLA after conceding the doubles point.
Equestrian Comes Back to Earth
Baylor Equestrian falls to No. 1 South Carolina, 12-6 on the road. Bears face Auburn tomorrow #SicEm— Baylor Equestrian (@BaylorEQ) March 6, 2015
No. 3 Baylor drops season finale to No. 7 Auburn on the road ,13-7. Bears finish regular season 11-4 & compete in Big 12 C-Ship 3/27-28— Baylor Equestrian (@BaylorEQ) March 8, 2015
With a thud. Four straight away meets, four straight losses for No. 3 Baylor Equestrian. There will be time to rebound in the postseason, but this isn't the result Coach White and her team were looking for on their long road trip.
Baseball Suffers Winless Weekend
It wasn't good. Baylor has developed a condition where they can either score a dozen runs and let the other team score 13, or allow two runs and only score one. It's a problem that wouldn't be nearly as apparent against weaker competition, but the brutal nature of Baylor's schedule combined with Big 12 membership will likely crush this seemingly talented team's season record. Losses came to Hawaii, LSU, and A&M this weekend in Houston. At least they weren't blowouts. I'm not embedding the tweets. No one wants to see a picture of A&M winning.
Softball Rebounds with Pair of Wins in Fullerton
After a less-than-ideal losing streak to Arizona State, Michigan, and Pacific, Baylor managed to salvage their weekend in Fullerton with nice wins over Fresno State and Arizona. Sarah Smith is also a very strong, very perceptive girl who is better at hitting things with a metal baton than you'll be at anything in your life.
The Daily Bear
Stop playing baseball, Bear. You're supposed to be in the Big Blue House developing social skills and talking to the moon.
