Postgame Takeaways: #9 Baylor (4-0) Destroys Stanford (3-2) 86-48

November 20, 2021


  • Complete domination in the second half.  The Bears outscored the Cardinal 52-20 in the second half to cruise to a 38 point victory.  The Bears collected 16 steals which led to 28 transition points.  
  • James Akinjo controlled the game from start to finish with his defense and offense.  He had 11 assists to only 2 turnovers.  
  • LJ Cryer continues to provide scoring with a team high 21 points.  
  • Kendall Brown and Jeremy Sochan both gave efficient minutes on both ends of the court.  15 points for Kendall including 3 steals.  Sochan with 11 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals.  
  • Matt Mayer had a tough day shooting but didn’t let it affect his defense.  He gave great effort on that end all game.  
  • Dale Bonner is going to be a very valuable role player.  He can hit open shots, handle the ball and his defense is sensational. 
  • Flo and Jon gave their normal production, Jon is a nightmare to keep off the glass.  

Needs Work:

  • Free throw shooting 10-17.  That’s an area that needs to get better.
  • Outrebounded 32-31, may be the only time Baylor gets outrebounded this season.  But first half, not as aggressive on the glass.  
  • Adam Flagler getting healthy.  We are counting on him and need his hand to heal.
