MaCio Teague called God a Baylor record 10 times in a Big12 game to lead the #3 Baylor Bears (21-1; 13-1) to a blowout win against #18 Texas Tech (17-9; 9-8) on Senior Day.  Mark Vital chipped in 10 points and 15 rebounds.

Positives

  • MaCio Teague!  Wow, crazy.  What a shooting performance.  10-12 from 3 point range.  35 points, could not ask for a better script!  
  • Mark Vital 10 points and 15 rebounds with a broken nose?  He got hit in the nose a couple of times and it seemed to energize him.  
  • The last game at the Ferrell Center for Davion Mitchell and Jared Butler?  The two All-Americans combine for 35 points on 11-14 shooting and dish 12 assists.  
  • Scoring 54 points on a Chris Beard team in the second half?  I would say the offense is back!  
  • Undefeated at home; 21-1 overall; 13-1 in the Ferrell Center.  Thanks for the memories!
  • 40-27 on the glass.  Dominated the Red Raiders on the boards. 

Needs Work

  • 12-7 advantage for Texas Tech in turnovers
  • Got off to 19-8 start but struggled offensively the rest of the first half.  Only 15 points in 12 minutes after that.  
  • Bench production only 8 points.  Need to get Flagler on track.  He’s had a few poor offensive outputs, but big offensive rebound on a missed free throw to keep a possession alive.
