Overreaction Central - Bears fall again

The Bears fall back down to earth with a thud as they are thoroughly beaten by Kansas State 81-61.

The highest ranked team in the Big 12 played like it Saturday night against the Bears, beating Baylor 81-61 in a game that was much closer for most of the contest. Baylor struggled all night with turnovers, as they had 19, and only forced 6 Wildcat turnovers. That, along with the scorching 3-point shooting from Kansas State (11-25 for 44%) allowed the game to get out of hand.

While the Bears were sloppy with some of their turnovers, a lot of credit needs to go to Kansas State. They were just much more active on both sides of the ball and got their hands on a ton of passes. Even with all of the first half turnovers, the game remained close for the most part. While the Wildcats got out to a 43-29 lead early in the second half, but the Bears clawed back into the game with a 12-0 run to get the deficit back to just 2 points.

From that point on, the long-range shooting of the Wildcats took over, as they hit three 3-point shots on their next three possessions and extended the lead back to 10 points, and that was pretty much the final push for the Bears.

The Bears actually shot the ball well in this game, but had 20 less shots than the Wildcats due to the -13 turnover margin and -8 offensive rebound margins. That is just too many shots to make up, even when you outshoot the opposition (45.7% to 45.5%). With the Bears turning it over on over 30% of their possessions and Kansas State getting an offensive rebound on 42% of their chances, that negated the advantage from the floor that the Bears had.

Baylor's leading scorer was A.J. Walton, who had 14 points on 6-8 shooting. Isaiah Austin also shot well from the field, making 4-8 shots for 13 points and Brady Heslip continued his good shooting streak in making 4-6 from behind the arc.

However, the Bears star, Pierre Jackson struggled mightily making just 2-8 shots, and could not get into the lane, or get out into transition very much. He only had 1 two-point field goal attempt, and made just 1-7 three pointers. He did get 9 assists, but had 5 turnovers in a sloppy game that saw him struggle to get around the and through the defense.

With the Wildcats going with a 4-guard starting lineup, that meant that one of the Bears post players would be asked to cover Shane Southwell. The Wildcats made them pay, by making the Baylor post players run around screens all night allowing Southwell to make 6 three-point shots on just 9 attempts. It was a great offensive game plan, and on the Bears could just not respond too.

This was a weird game to watch. I think the Bears were playing hard, but they might have been playing too fast on offense, due to the great pressure the Wildcats put on the ball. But at the same time, they were playing too slow on defense, and not reacting to the screens as well as they should have been. Isaiah Austin and Brady Heslip in particular struggled to keep up with their man through screens. I can forgive Austin a bit for it, since he was trailing a 6-6 guard, but he has to get better at challenging shots from the perimeter. His length should be able to bother shooters more, but he seemed to be a step slow.

Offensively, the Bears played too fast with the ball, but were weak with their passes. The Wildcats had active hands all night and challenged every pass, which led to dozens of tipped balls. Some of those were made into turnovers, but even when the Bears recovered the ball, their offense was out of rhythm and they had to make something up on the fly.

The Bears will now come home and try and get a much needed win against one of the top half Big 12 schools, with Iowa State coming to town. The Cyclones have struggled on the road this year, so the Bears have a big opportunity in front of them. Hopefully, they can shake off the Manhattan Blues and get themselves ready.
