The Big 12: College Basketball’s Toughest Test


Baylor Men’s Basketball dropped their first game in nearly a month on Wednesday night, at Texas where they struggled from the outset.

Baylor Freshman Jared Butler said Texas came out strong and the Bears never really had an answer.

“I just think Texas came out, played with a lot of energy, got after us,” Butler said. “They punched us, and we didn’t punch back, and that was the difference.”

After playing good basketball for three-straight weeks, the Bears were bound for a slip-up especially in a conference like the Big 12.

“Everyone in the Big 12 has wanted a chance to win a championship, and end the streak, so that’s what everyone’s goal is,” Scott Drew said. “But again this is the Big 12 and each and every night is a dog fight, and if you don’t bring your A-game you don’t even have a chance to win that game let along a conference championship. That’s why it’s so hard because it’s hard to be up for every game.”

Baylor enters the weekend one game back of Big 12 leading Kansas State, who they will host on Saturday at the Ferrell Center.
