Among the other happening of the week that was in college basketball, there was a significant bounce-back victory by a Top 10 team, several sweet highlights and a tweet from last month that simply must be recognized.
BOUNCEBACK OF THE WEEK
No. 6 BAYLOR 77
@ No. 25 KANSAS STATE 68
I feel bad for Baylor. The team ascended the polls to become the No. 1 ranked team in the country (we had them ranked No. 3, just FYI) for the first time in school history last week, but then had to play a should-be-ranked-much-higher West Virginia squad that smelled blood in the water.
The result? An 89-68 beat down in which Baylor turned the ball over about a million times and gift wrapped the easy Mountaineer victory.
Fortunately, Baylor managed to bounce back with a nice victory over Kansas State. No, the Wildcats aren’t exactly Kansas, UCLA or Oregon, but it was a much-needed victory nonetheless for a Bruins squad that could have easily folded amidst their disappointing loss earlier in the week.
