This game will come down to a few things: whether JTT plays, how the game is officiated, and how much progress we've made as far as getting into game shape. One thing that really stands out to me is Kansas lack of depth from a scoring standpoint. If JTT plays we have a HUGE bench advantage. Also I think this is a game where we see Teague and Mayer have monster games just a hunch. Can't wait to watch them in person tomm! Go Bears!

Baylor is seeking to defeat Kansas at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence for just the 2nd time. A Baylor win would complete the 1st sweep of this season series for the Bears over the Jayhawks. Looking forward to watching this Big XII MBB showdown tonight on ESPN.

It would be so sweet if Baylor became Big XII Champions after bearing a team who has won a ridiculous number of them in the last several seasons. SIC 'EM, BEARS!

Yes, it won't be easy on the eyes, but at least we don't have to look at their feet too much:



Male athletes should never be forced to wear hot pink!!

Hate playing Kansas at home. It is usually their 5 players plus 3 refs.
