Said it in another thread but we have a huge height advantage. Mayer and Brown need to use the 5 or so inch advantage both will have and attack the rim. No need to get into a 3 point shooting contest with them. Contain Pack and Nowell and we win. Let them go off and it could be a cheek clincher. JTT could have a big game against KSUs front court tonight. Anyways Bears W by at least 7

I've only seen 1/2 a game of KSU basketball. 1/2 a game more than I had wished at this point.

We destroy them on the glass, and hold them to 22 first half points.

Baylor 74 KSU 58

Only 1 more. Look at the schedule.

Sochan is warming up. With golden hair, not that it matters.

Not starting:

Warming up is a great sign. We can go big and have Mayer play guard. Changes everything.

Oh, it matters! We've had heated debates over gold, yellow, mustard, velveeta, etc.

Judging by their black and silver uniforms, we are playing the Kansas State Spurs this evening.

Small crowd. Amazing Drew has built this with such mediocre support.

So CT, you claimed the home team ALWAYS selects the ESPN+ announcers. So Rhoades and Drew picked UT's Lance Blanks & Longhorn Network's Lowell Galindo?

Akinjo out, Sochan just checked in

Lowell Galindo (pxp), Lance Blanks (analyst)

If Kansas State has any size they must use it. We are a nightmare matchup for them because our bigs can switch and guard the perimeter.

They can't win this game if they get out rebounded by more than 2 to 1.

Great to see Soohan back!

JTT shoots it from the outside like he's afraid he'll never get another chance the rest of the game.
DanaDane

The best thing I see on the court so far is that Sochan appears to be moving laterally, backward, forward, etc......with no limp or ackward hobble.
vanillabryce
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Agree! But lucky for us that's how he rebounds too

Does this caster sound like Andy Katz or is it just me..
vanillabryce

It's Lowell Galindo from the LHN.
DanaDane
How long do you want to ignore this user?
He's really developed pretty good form. Just hasn't yet developed a feel for when to shoot. So much potential and he just keeps developing it. Love to see that.
