WACO, TX (FOX 44) — The fifth-ranked Baylor Bears shook off a slow start on Wednesday afternoon, as they beat McNeese State 89-60.

Baylor started the game on a 10-2 run, as reigning Big 12 Player of the Week LJ Cryer scored all 10 of the Bears’ point early on. The Cowboys responded with an immediate 12-0 run, all via three-pointers, to lead by four.

From there, the Bears retook the lead with 10:22 left in the first half, and never trailed again as they improved to 5-1 on the season.
