The Baylor Men on Saturday, however, simply outplayed the Cowboys of Oklahoma State. They hustled more, they were more disciplined, and apparantly, better coached. Hopefully this team is ready to come out of what some felt was a hibernation. Hopefully this game can act as a catalyst. With the Big 12 Tournament looming on the horizon, it couldn't come at a more opportune time.
The Baylor Women, to be frank, weren't expected to have much of a chance against their "Lady Raider friends" from Lubbock. Baylor seemingly had the game won in regulation, but Texas Tech gathered some much needed momentum towards the end of regulation to tie it up and send the game into overtime at 69-all.
Momentum is a funny thing, and one would have thought the momentum the Lady Raiders had to send the game into overtime would have continued, but Mo got derailed. By the time the Lady Raiders scored their first "overtime" points to be at 71, the Lady Bears were sitting at 81. The Bears could coast, and pretty much did as they won, 86-72. The only other point the Lady Raiders got was on the front end of a two-shot free throw. Marsha will have to wait on that 500th win.
