The Baylor Bears made their season debut on Thursday to take on Midwestern State in an exhibition game. The Bears came away with the victory, 68-59.
Baylor point guard A.J. Walton led all scorers with 14 points on the night, while newcomer J'mison Morgan made his Baylor debut by recording a double double. Morgan dropped in 13 points and recorded 10 boards on the game. Freshman Perry Jones III, a highly-recruited player coming out of high school scored 6 points and 3 rebounds before fouling out.
The Bears turned the ball over 23 times in the game, and saw Midwestern State's David Terrell and Thomas Colbert each score in double digits. In addition to not taking care of the basketball, the Bears went 1-9 from beyond the three point line, and made only 65.9% of their free throws.
Even with all the miscues, the Bears got plenty of young faces into the game to get valuable experience as the Bears head into season play. Baylor opens its season next Friday against Grambling State. Tip-off is scheduled for 8:30 p.m.
