This Time Is Different: Bears Ready for Texas Rematch


The Baylor men’s basketball team will look to avoid their first season sweep, at the hands of Texas, since 2014, on Wednesday when they host the Horns at the Ferrell center.

Texas used aggressive guard play to top the Bears by 12 the last time these two teams met in Austin. Kerwin Roach went for 21 points in that game, but he will not play a role on Wednesday as he serves an indefinite suspension. Head Coach Scott Drew knows that Texas has plenty of talent behind Roach, so they aren’t taking anything for granted.

“Like every other Big 12 team, everyone’s had injuries suspensions, different things at different times,” Drew said. “That’s why Big 12 teams are so good, because it’s more than just one players.”

Freshman guard Jared Butler said they weren’t ready for the last game, but that will not be the case this time around.

“They’re pretty fast, pretty quick, so we’ve just got to understand the strengths and understand their weaknesses, going into the game,” he said. “I think last game we weren’t;t prepared enough but this time, but this game we are for sure.”

Baylor has won six of their last seven match-ups with Texas.
