Really looking forward to this measuring stick. With the news of Turner finally making it official he's redshirting, the staff must really feel good about the roster as is.

That is a really good roster if those 4 non-starters deliver the roles they are capable of delivering. And, Clark gets in the groove by the time conference starts.

More excited about this than Baylor-TCU tomorrow. It's almost like a 2nd season opener and a great chance to show what we're made of on national TV. Dominate tonight and this will be talked about the rest of the season by the media.

Sic 'Em!

No wonder I don't watch NBA coverage on ESPN. This studio show is as bad as it gets.

At least it seems Williams is gone from CBB. Him and Seth were insufferable.

Clark, Gillespie, Mitchell, Butler and Teague are the starting 5.

Scott looking good in the khaki fatigues.

Butler hit the 3 not Teague, guys.

Clark has to figure stuff out. He looks so uncomfortable. Turn, face, drive. It's not hard.
DanaDane

Clark has gotta take and hit those open shots.

Not sure what's happened. He doesn't look confident at all.

Teague buries it if he's open.

So skittish last game too. Honestly, he's got the tools but needs to put it together. We need to see him dominate a stretch of play.

Someday my dream is gonna be realized when we have a 6-9 guy who has a soft pure touch and can bury 5 foot baseline shot after 5 foot baseline shot when left open. Someday.

Tristan looking like the weakest link seems like a great sign. Man are we going to be unguardable when he gets his mojo back.

Freddie G is usually that guy. Missed the look but hustled back and forced an immediate turnover.

How did Bandoo miss that??

Love that guy's hustle. His body is all over the floor going for balls.

Clark and Vital flashing in the lane isn't working. Who's our best passing "big"? Might be Mayer.
BU25
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Nice seeing Vital being aggressive. If he ends up coming off the bench all season, he'll definitely bring the energy.
rudylaw

There we go, TC!

The is the first Baylor team that has as many pure shooters from the outside as Kansas traditionally has.

Would love to see Mayer in that spot.

Clark finally hits one.

Reminds me of Jerrells, Dugat, Bruce but those guys never seemed to see the floor at the same time, IIRC. So used to seeing us long along the baseline, it's offputting seeing a guard-first roster!
BU25
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Not playing good, but still got a decent lead. We appear to be the much better team. Let's push it to 15 by halftime.

Clark will be fine after he gets a few full speed games under his belt
rudylaw

Look at Vital calm as anything from the line.
DanaDane

Clark's gonna need a few games to have confidence that he's healed. Also, hate to admit it, but this is a game we could really use the size of Kegler so we could keep the Gillespie, Vital, Clark rotation fresh.
McBearenstein

Vital putting in free throw work in the offseason!
