Baylor Baseball Looking For Extended Stay in OKC

Waco, TX - Baylor has yet to win a game in Bricktown, at The Big 12 Tournament, in their two previous trips under Steve Rodriguez, and as they left on Monday they had plans to change that this week.

The Bears are as hot as any team in the conference right now, closing the season on a tear winning 18 of their last 21 games, and seemingly solidifying a playoff spot. Senior closer Troy Montemayor is not  satisfied with what the Bears have done getting to this point, he wants to take the program to new heights and win a Big 12 Title.

"You know, you never know, what the committee is going to decide," he said when asked if he felt like they were in the field of 64. "I don't think we're out of the woods. I think we still have a lot to prove, and I'd like a championship. If we could do that and be the first team in Baylor history to win a tournament I think that's what we're all about."

Coach Steve Rodriguez said he feels like this team has showed the committee everything they should need to see to be considered a regional team, so he wants his guys to relax and keep doing what they have been doing.

"The biggest thing is just go out and play well," he said. "I want them to relax I want them to play well. I think we've put ourselves in a great position anyway, but it's time we win some games at the Big 12 tournament. I think they all feel that same way."

The Bears will face off against an Oklahoma team that swept them back in late-March. Cody Bradford will get the start for the Bears.
