Bears cannot overlook OU. They gave us perhaps our closest game anybody has during conference thus far.

Yes, need someone to stay in Manek's jersey. He was killing us in the last game.

Ashley. That's a lot of points you are giving OU tonight.

I think the Bears come out and take care of business and thump OU.

It says a lot about the state of our defense when 64 points is "a lot of points."

What a time to be a Baylor fan.

Those aren't his predictions. That's the KenPom prediction.

Chris Spatola, the color analyst on the WVU-Ok St. game "guaranteed" we would lose the next 2 games. For further reference, he also guaranteed we'd lose to Butler and Kansas earlier in the year.

This definitely has the feel of a back and forth type game. Still early though so we'll see

The number of open layups and breakaways we've missed this season is unfortunate.

If we could score on even 20% of the trips of the trips down to Oklahoma's side of the court, this would be a different game.
