I don't know why we switch so much on defense when the screens TCU are setting are nothing great

That was a nice win for them today. They will be tough to beat... especially in Austin.

Vital 5-6 from the line. I can remember when that used to be 1 or 2 of 6. He's continued to work on his touch.

Nice to see the #2 ranked Baylor Bears finally have a double digit lead Plenty of basketball yet to play in the 2nd Half. Jared Butler might have to score 30 points to ensure a Baylor win today.

I dont pump sunshine..i let the game play out..its silly to be concerned about a 1 pt deficit with 20 min to go..

Double digit deficit at half..then im comcerned.

You better start getting concerned because we are just beginning to play good teams on our schedule. Starting with Texas. We can't just hang around the first half and shoot as badly as we did today in the first half.

As bad as we have shot this is a great game for this team

We are finding different ways on how to win when outside shots are not falling

Dude, GIVE IT A REST.

It's a friggin' GAME THREAD, where people react to action AS IT HAPPENS, just like they would in the stands. Everyone says things that may or may not be prove to be the way things end. This isn't a lecture class where you wait to the end to comment. That's what the f'n Open Threads are for. Iowa Bear is just making observations as action happens. Quit acting like he suddenly is marching in front of Pat Neff saying he hates Baylor.

Vital, JTT, Flo being able to give us scoring in games like this will help tremendously

I haven't even said anything bad. The dude just hates me for no reason. Next he will be like KIA calling me a wifebeater.

I actually like the quieter arena

I can hear what the coaches are yelling. I think drew yells a lot more when we are on defense.

That's the great thing about this team. Butler was ice cold and others picked up the slack against OU. Today, Butler's at 28 points.

Not our best outing, but we've put it away, slowing down the pace it seems like to seal the deal.

I sometimes think we'll just roll everyone without effort, but all these teams have some really good players capable of putting up points. Glad to win this one.

Wonderful second half! Hoping for 2 complete halves Tuesday! Competition is going to go up a ton next week

Nembhard is a potential 1st round pick, and the Miles kid seems pretty talented.

Basketball talent is well dispersed throughout the league

Time to see how KU looks against OU. Game is tied in the first

Very happy when ESPN shows TCU's 3 pt half time shot, it will also end showing us with a the win!
