#2 Baylor goes on a 19-1 run in the second half to bury OSU in Stillwater 81-66.  The Bears are now 14-0 (7-0) on the season.  Clavin and Ashley Hodge break down the game on the post game podcast.  

Positives:

  • Jared Butler says “Not Today”.  He was 5-5 from 3 in the seond half.  The Bears outscored OSU 49-30 after intermission.  
  • Mark Vital and Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua were playing with a lot more urgency in the second half.  Vital finishes with a season high 19 points (8-9 FGs).  Everyday Jon only has 4 points and 4 rebounds but also has 4 blocks.  
  • Mitchell with 9 assists to only 1 turnover- outstanding.  Flagler 10 points; 3 rebounds; 3 assists; 3 steals and no turnovers.  
  • Teague with a key block to ignite the big second half run.  Flo Thamba making his two free throws also a positive.  
  •  

Needs Work:  

  • Rebounds ended up only 37-34 in OSU’s favor but the Bears were down 23-12 in rebounding at half and got dominated in the paint early in the game.  A lot of ball watching going on.  
  • Complacency in first half against a team missing two of their top 6 players.  OSU brought the fight.  
  • Interior defense has to get better.  Too many dunks, lay-ups and put backs.  Plenty to work on before KSU and Auburn.
