Bears Host Horns

The #21 Baylor Bears host the Texas Longhorns to conclude the Big 12 regular season. Baylor seniors Josh Lomers and Tweety Carter will be honored before the game on Senior Day.

The #21 Baylor Bears (23-6, 10-5) host the #25 Texas Longhorns (23-7, 9-6) on Saturday to conclude the Big 12 regular season. Baylor seniors Josh Lomers and Tweety Carter will be honored before the game on Senior Day.

While tip-off is not scheduled until 3:00 p.m. in the Ferrell Center, Baylor fans will likely be on their feet in appreciation well before that. Senior Day marks the final home games for Baylor Bears Josh Lomers and Tweety Carter.

The success of the hometown team has reportedly made the season finale the hottest ticket in town. With an expected sellout, the Baylor Bears could clinch at least the No. 3 seed in next week's Big 12 Men's Championship with a victory. In addition to clinching a higher seed in the Big 12 tournament, the Bears would also earn a 1st round bye in the tournament.

On Saturday, the Bears will look for a season sweep of the Longhorns. The Bears won an overtime thriller earlier this season in Austin, and also hold a two game winning streak over the Longhorns.
