Some say that beating a team 3 times in the same season is very difficult to do. However, with a trio of Tweety Carter, LaceDarius Dunn, and Ekpe Udoh, the Baylor Bears did just that by beating the Texas Longhorns, 86-67. The Baylor victory extends Baylor's win streak over the Longhorns to 4 games.
Baylor junior forward Ekpe Udoh led all scorers with 25 points, a career high, while bringing down 8 rebounds on the night. Senior point guard Tweety Carter ran the show for Baylor on Thursday scoring 20 points and recording 3 assists for the game. Baylor junior guard LaceDarius Dunn, who sat most of the 1st half with 3 fouls, dropped 19 points, brought down 9 rebounds, and recorded 7 assists.
The Bears defense held the Longhorns to 36% shooting on the night, while the Baylor Bears seemingly got whatever shot they wanted against the Longhorns' defense. The Bears shot 53% from the field.
Baylor now has a 4 game winning streak against the Texas Longhorns.
The Bears will face the Kansas State Wildcats in the semi-final game on Friday night.
