Leave Nothing to Chance: Bears Head to KC Eyeing a Title

Kansas City, MO - The Baylor Mens Basketball team has had a roller coaster month, that included a five-game winning streak, followed by losing three of their last four in the regular season.

The Bears are currently projected as a bubble team for the NCAA Tournament, with some sites putting them in, while others have them out. As they get set to take on West Virginia, they know one thing is for sure: If they win their first-ever Big 12 Tournament Title, they won't have to worry about any bubbles come Sunday.

"Yeah you've gotta win," Senior Manu Lecomte said. "But right now, our main focus is West Virginia on Thursday, and then trying to win a Big 12 Championship. None of this will matter if we just win a Big 12 championship."

Coach Drew has maintained his stance that the Bears will keep playing until somebody knocks them out and ends their season, so the goal this weekend in Kansas City is to not leave anything in the hands of any committee. 

"Well the good thing is it doesn't matter what I think, as far as in out," head Coach Scott Drew said. "What I do know is, we control our own destiny as long as we're playing and we have an opportunity to play until we're beat."

The Bears are 1-0 against West Virginia in Big 12 tournament play.
