Baylor Bears Schedule in 2013-14
The Baylor Bears are ready to roar this season as they hit the basketball court
to take on some of the top teams in the Big 12 and college hoops in general. The Big 12 is never a breeze for any team that
calls this elite conference home, so the Bears know that they're going to have to put together an impressive home record in
2013-14 if they're going to have a shot at finishing atop the conference standings. The Bears are coming off a 2012-13 season
in which they notched an impressive 23-14 overall record. However, the Bears were only able to post a.500 record in Big 12
play, which speaks to the level of competition in the conference. Things won't be any easier in Big 12 play this season, so
the team knows that it has to step things up if they're going to contend with the big boys of the conference. The Bears have
a lot of great matchups coming their way at the Ferrell Center this season, and Bears fans are sure to pack the stands to
the brim as they cheer on the Bears with every ounce of energy they have. It should be another great season of Baylor basketball,
and you can be there in person to see the action unfold up close and personal.
The Bears will certainly be anticipating
a tough game when the Oklahoma State Cowboys hit the court at the Ferrell Center this season. The Cowboys have one of the
best teams in the Big 12, thanks largely in part to the presence of sophomore guard Marcus Smart. Smart is a tough-nosed player
that decided to pass on being a Top 5 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft to return for another season of college ball. He is a man
on a mission this year, and the Bears are going to have to stop him if they hope to send the Cowboys back to Oklahoma with
Baylor will close out their home schedule this season with the Iowa State Cyclones, who will take the court
in Waco on March 4th. The Cyclones are a formidable opponent, as is any team that calls the Big 12 home, and the Bears will
be looking to finish out their home stint this season with a victory. The final home game of the season is always well-attended,
so the Bears should have a great crowd behind them, propelling the team on the victory.
Baylor Bears History
a proud college hoops tradition that dates all the way back to 1907, and Baylor Bears Basketball has seen some incredible
seasons along the way. The school has been to seven NCAA Tournaments, most recently in 2012, and has advanced to the Sweet
Sixteen and the Elite Eight four times. The team has made two trips to the Final Four, one of which saw the Bears finish as
a runner-up in the National Championship game. The Bears add to this rich history each and every time they take the court,
and fans are hoping that this can be the season that Baylor can break through and win the National Championship.
Did you know that the 1927 Baylor Bears basketball season was tragically cut short when a bus carrying
students and basketball players was struck by a train causing ten deaths?
That's right; the victims of the accident
went on to be referred to as the Immortal Ten while the tragedy led to the construction of the first railway overpass in Texas
at the spot of the accident.
Great Players for the Baylor Bears
The Baylor Bears have seen some dominant
players suit up for the team over the years, as is to be expected from a program of this caliber. One such player was shooting
guard David Wesley, who had some fantastic seasons for the Bears during his time at Baylor. Wesley would go on to play in
the National Basketball Association, where he carved out a solid career bolstered by his shooting ability. Another famed player
to come out of Baylor was Vinnie "The Microwave" Johnson, who found his niche in the NBA as a fantastic sparkplug off the
bench as a sixth man. Recent Bears to head to the NBA include Ekpe Udoh, Perry Jones and Quincy Miller. Udoh was even selected
in the Top 10 picks of the NBA Draft.

team love to head out to the arena to see their favorite players take to the court and host some of the best teams in the
