#5 Baylor (3-0) notches Coach Drew's official 400th win at Baylor tonight with a 95-62 victory over Northern Colorado (1-2).  Next up for the Bears are two tough games in Las Vegas opening up with Virginia (2-0) on Friday November 18th.  

Positives

  • Congrats to Coach Drew on 400 wins at Baylor (officially).  Two wins were credited to Jerome Tang on his watch.  
  • Adam Flagler 13 points and 10 assists and only one turnover
  • Incredible performance from Dale Bonner on both ends of the court- 12 points; 4 rebounds; 4 assists; 6 steals.  He’s a difference maker.
  • Great to see LJ Cryer regain his shooting form- 20 points on 8-16 from the field.
  • Jalen Bridges playing at a high level of efficiency.  
  • Keyonte George- off night shooting but still 12 points; 7 rebounds and 6 assists.  Loved to see him draw two charges also.  
  • Great contributions from Joshua Ojianwuna, Flo Thamba, Caleb Lohner and Langston Love.  All stars in their roles.  
  • Forcing the 15 steals and 24 turnovers was great

Needs Work

  • Transition defense and ball rotations.  Northern Colorado shot 35% from 3 (10-29).  We want to hold teams under 30%.  
  • Offensive rebounding - only 26% of our misses tonight.  We are almost always over 30%.  We did a great job on the defensive glass though (84%).  
  • 3 point shot selection.  We have great shooters but we had a few “pulls” that were like “what are we doing?”  Need to clean that up against better competition especially if we only rebound 25% of our misses.  We finished at 10-31 from 3 (32%).
