A battle of 3-0 MBB teams at the Ferrell Center tonight. Ashley Hodge is there, and will give valuable updates the next few hours. Meanwhile, I'll be here at 'StatMan Sports Center' in Waco. SIC 'EM, BEARS!

Could we get the SFA center to grad transfer to our football team to play on the offensive or defensive lines?

Adam Flagler for 3! YES!!! #2 Baylor 14, SFA 8 now with 12:27 to play in the 1st half.

I was asleep when it came to Cryer. I knew he was good, but he has much better lateral body movement than a frosh typically has.

We have doubled up SFA 16-8 with fairly uninspired play so far. It's still way too early, but I'm hopeful that we'll see a lot of a backcourt featuring Cryer, Flagler, and Mayer in the second half. Quick little glimpse into the future.
DanaDane

Don't see this often: SFA with twice as many boards as the Bears, 10-5
DanaDane

Man, I can't say enough how much I love watching our guys play D.

SFA with 9 T/O's now.

It was 23-14 Tech at the half. Are they playing blindfolded? haha
ColoradoGRN&GLD
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Yeah, our defensive rebounding has been really bad so far. Looked like a few of those were situations where everyone thought someone else would grab the board. The free throw miss that got knocked out of bounds sticks out in that regard.

At this pace Tech is gonna score 20 on us lol

I was glancing at the stats a little earlier and at one point Tech was shooting 17% from the floor and 9% from 3.

Bears shooting 50% from the floor and 40% from 3.

JTT, Vital and Davion with 4 each to lead

Mark Vital basket ends a 4:30 drought w/o a hoop. Official Timeout with 7:20 to play in the 1st Half. #2 Baylor 22, SFA 13. Baylor is shooting7-of-14 for 50%.

Why are we only up 6? Lol we should be up 20 by now our offense is struggling
DanaDane
How long do you want to ignore this user?
We've looked fairly uninspired in the first half, which is understandable given a game thrown together in the last seconds.
DanaDane

Tech trailing ACU 36-35 with 7:45 to go.

No flow. Too much officiating.

With 3:55 to play until Halftime, #2 Baylor has a 25-19 lead. Team Shooting: Baylor 47%, SFA 40%. Very surprising 15-8 Team Rebounds advantage for SFA.

Jeez I'm gonna be about 45 points off my prediction at this point. Come on Bears

We're making some plays here and there, but overall we don't look at all comfortable on the offensive end, plus on the defensive end SFA is getting to the rim too frequently. This team can just go off and blow the doors off of it at any time but it sure hasn't happened yet.
ColoradoGRN&GLD
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Outside of JTT, we seem to have a distinct lack of energy on the offensive end. Looks like most of our guys are just going through the motions tonight. Disappointing from a fans perspective, but I don't fault them for it (if that is indeed the case). Must be hard to get up for ASU, NOVA, & Gonzaga only to have the rug pulled out from underneath you.
