With three-pointers raining from all over the building, the Baylor Bears did all they could to hang with the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Saturday afternoon in Stillwater.
However, it wasn’t enough as the Cowboys held on for an 82-75 victory over the No. 22 Bears.
“The shooters made shots, so credit them,” Bears head coach Scott Drew told Baylor’s official athletic site. “Obviously, you always want to feel a little better defensively, but they made some tough shots. ... We had a hand up in several of those shots. That’s why [Oklahoma State’s] James Anderson is a pro.”
Tweety Carter led the Bears with 25 points, four assists and three rebounds while getting plenty of help from his friends, including LaceDarius Dunn (14 PTS, 5 REB), Ekpe Udoh (11 PTS, 16 REB, 3 BLK) and Quincy Acy (11 PTS, 5 REB).
“They [Oklahoma State] played their best ball tonight,” Carter said. “They knocked down some shots that some nights they won’t make.”
Baylor (remaining in the top-25 polls in the latest AP release at No. 24) returns to the hardwood on Wednesday, Feb. 24, as they host Big 12 rival Texas A&M at the Ferrell Center.
