Hope the low 3 pt % against Villanova means we shoot above 45% against Arkansas
That which does not kill me, will try again and get nastier

Yes! I'll settle for 40%.

I have a feeling the 3pt flood gates are gonna open up for BU tonight.

We shot 16% from 3 on Saturday. So regression to our mean of 42% means we will shoot at least 68% tonight. Come on math....don't let me down!

(btw....how the hell am I supposed to get any work done today???)

As a Baylor alumnus from the 1980's, it will be fun watching a renewal of old SWC rivals when the Baylor Bears battle the Arkansas Razorbacks tonight in Indianapolis on CBS Sports. 1st Elite Eight basketball game for Baylor MBB since 2012. Solid team defense + better 3-point shooting would put Baylor in position for one of the bigger wins during the Scott Drew era. GO BEARS! BEAT THE HOGS!

I'm not greedy, I'd be happy with a 23 point win!!

Now it's "only" 6.5....

We do have the Lady Bears to cheer on while we wait. Man, how great would it be to have both teams make it to the Final Four!
