Big XII: It's All Baylor at Halftime

By Jean Neuberger - March 09, 2007

No one in the arena can believe it, and probably Baylor Coach Scott Drew can't believe it either, but his Bears have dominated #2 seed Texas from the start, and at the half, it's an 18-point Baylor lead, 43-25.

Leading the way for the Bears is Curtis Jerells with 13 points, and you have to give credit to Mamadou Diene, the Baylor center who has taken control of the paint on both sides of the ball.

Kevin Durant ends the half with five points. Three of those were free throws, and his one basket came on a follow-up shot down low with 35.7 seconds left in the first half. Needless to say, Diene has owned him for the first 20 minutes.

Can Baylor keep it up? Can Texas recover, or will we have an even bigger upset tonight in Oklahoma City?

Stay tuned to, as we continue live coverage of the 2007 Big XII Tournament!

Hi, Jean. Tell coach Drew I said hello. I know him from back in his Valpo days.
