Good god MaCio Teague is 10-of-11 from 3-point range vs. Texas Tech. Out of his mind and all the way into his bag. Fabulous display.

Jared Butler added 18 points and five assists for the Bears, while Davion Mitchell went for 17 points and seven assists. Baylor also held Mac McClung to just seven points on 3-of-9 shooting.

The conference champions will head into the Big 12 tournament with a 21-1 record. They'll be in action next on Thursday, March 11, at 2:30 p.m. ET, when they'll face the winner of TCU vs. Kansas State.

Baylor has two All-Americans in its backcourt and neither was its best guard today. MaCio Teague goes for 35 against Texas Tech. The Bears are back. Consider yourself warned America.

No. 3 Baylor had an excellent week, with wins over West Virginia in overtime and Cade Cunningham's Oklahoma State. The Bears also clinched their first conference title since 1950 and finished the regular season undefeated at home. 

Few performances this season were better than what they offered Sunday, as Baylor finished an impressive 15-of-24 from three as a team and had four starters finish with double-digit points. The Bears have made it quite clear that they are a legitimate national championship contender this season. 

As for Texas Tech, the No. 18 Red Raiders will close the regular season at 17-9. Their first game in the Big 12 tournament is to be determined.
