Mayer has a pretty shot but needs to understand when to shoot and when to pass. Team is playing hard, just hope someone has a career game.

Well we have a limited bench to begin with. And while Okeke didn't do anything great while he was on the court he also didn't do anything bad. Looked fine in the zone.

Loving the effort from these guys. Butler and Bandu will have to get hot though to pull this off with the depleted roster.

Vital coast to coast!

Way too much of a ball hog, always wants to shoot. Needs to look for better shots and an open man.

He's been one of our best passers lately. He'll be fine. Hopefully this next half.

Vital's dunk n steal, then dribbles coast to coast, and finishes with a full running slam with three KSU defenders there...was one of the best plays I've seen by a Baylor basketball player against top competition!

Need to reduce turnovers & keep playing Drew's zone to win.

Butler faked me out and I'm at home.

Haha Vital was trying to get the ref to call the foul in the act of shooting. Thanks, but we'd probably rather have the ball side out of bounds.

Tremendous effort!!
KajunKarlsdad

Have to keep them off their offensive glass, getting second chances and fouls on us.

Again the effort is outstanding tonight.
KajunKarlsdad

Enough with the stupid fouls on 3 pt attempts! Jump up not into them.

K State back in front, keep leaving 3 point shooters wide open playing too far off
