With March Madness right around the corner, it’s time to take a look at Baylor’s bracket possibilities in this year’s NCAA Tournament (as well as what needs to be done come Big 12 Tourney time as the regular season comes to a close).
Baylor Bears head coach Scott Drew recently reached 100 wins at the helm of the men’s basketball program, as he has successfully taken a program from the ashes to the top-25.
In addition, Drew and his remarkable staff have proven a much-needed consistency in the Baylor basketball program with three-straight 20-win seasons.
The Bears have picked up some major wins this season, including big wins over intra-state rivals Texas and Texas A&M (with the latest victory coming Wednesday evening in a 70-66 ‘W’ over the Aggies at the Ferrell Center).
Also, with a major Baylor win in Norman, Oklahoma against the Sooners on Saturday afternoon, the Bears improved to 9-5 in conference play (tying coach Drew’s best Big 12 record in Waco) with two games remaining (on the road against Texas Tech on Tuesday and at home against Texas on Saturday).
Come Big 12 Tourney time, Baylor’s consistency must remain intact if they hope to garner key wins and advance in a bracket boasting the nation’s best and most elite conference in college basketball.
