After being down 4-3 early in the first half, the Bears took the lead and never looked back. LaceDarius Dunn continued his hot streak, leading all scorers with 24 points and continues to shoot over 50% from beyond the 3 point line, going 4/8 tonight. After a quiet performance against Arizona State, Quincy Acy returned to form scoring 14 points and picking up 10 rebounds.
AJ Walton continues to grow into the point guard position and had 10 assists in the game. Due to the injury of freshman point guard Stargell Love, Walton had to carry the load by himself for the most part, leading all players with 35 minutes. Freshman standout Perry Jones was held scoreless in the first half, but then chipped in 15 points in the second half and added 9 rebounds of his own. J'Mison Morgan was Baylor's leading scorer off the bench, dropping in 11 points in only 15 minutes.
Baylor coach Scott Drew has stressed the need to cut down on the number of turnovers after each game and for the first time this season the Bears had single-digit turnovers, finishing the game with 6 against a Bethune-Cookman squad that is among the nation's leaders in forcing turnovers. Defensively it was a historical night for Baylor, holding an opponent under 40 points for the first time since 1958. The win came after a 13 day layoff and right before the Bears' showdown with Gonzaga on Saturday at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.
