Maybe I'm overly confident but I got the Bears big 87-66

Hopefully they remember what happened in Fort Worth last season.

Actually on ESPN.

Nembhard is a projected 1st rounder on some sites.

Butler and Mitchell 2nd rounders.

Will be interesting to see them matchup.

Ready for the Baylor Bears to take care of business + get some payback for the upset loss to TCU in Fort Worth last MBB season. Keep the turnovers down, and Baylor should be just fine. Don't look ahead to West Virginia either. I've got on my Baylor Basketball jersey, and prepared to cheer for our Baylor Bears on ESPN.

Vital makes 2 free throws to open game. Guess his hand/wrist is ok

That move just made Butler look like a fool. Yikes. Now, hopefully that pumps Butler up and he scores 40.

Mitchell is 0-10 from 3 over the past 3 games.

Pass the damn ball.

We look lost on offense for the 3rd consecutive Big 12 game. We're lucky we have the ability to turn it on and score 15 quickly against most teams.
IowaBear

Zero ball movement absolutely none!
Johnny Bear

Geez we're cold.

Brick party so far and several wide open looks

Hoping Matt M will give us a lift

Not sure what needs to change, but am reminded of the Iowa St game

Ball movement. Too stagnant. Dribble up dribble some more dribble a bit more shoot a pull up J and repeat.

No ball movement. Bad spacing. Lethargic looking body movement. And Dribble-Drive offense has turned into Dribble, Dribble, Dribble, Dribble, Dribble, Dribble, Drive and miss.

Bears start cold.

My espn + came back from a commercial and landed me in a documentary. Wth?

I'm back in now

We've been running a lot of free motion offense the last several games. I'd like to see Drew call a few of our set plays to get some guys open looks. We've seen that a couple shots falling can lead to huge runs with this team.
DanaDane

Mark Vital has completely disappeared during conference play.

Flash bigs to elbow. Vital and Mayer are capable passers, run cutters and dribble handoffs.

Too much dribbling in one spot.

Vital never seems ready for the pass

Bad pass, but your point is valid

Silly turnovers
IowaBear

This is hard to watch. This team commits about 5-7 mins blowing TOS a game. That has to change and fast
Johnny Bear

Now we've gone from brick city to a turnover party. So far this almost feels like watching one of our football games this season
DanaDane

Ok, nice assist to JTT for the dunk there. Maybe that will get us started.

Second one tonight

Vital is making up for it

Butler has the most amazing hang time as he shoots those little running jumpers.
IowaBear

When's the last 3 Mitchell hit!? Dude is bricking WIDE open 3's. Their best players on the bench and we can't do anything
