Baylor Basketball Season Begins Tonight

The Baylor Bears begin their basketball season tonight against Midwestern State in an exhibition game at 7. The Bears are ranked 14th in the polls, and they look to capitalize on last years success where they reached the Elite 8 and lost to Duke.

They will be without their star player LaceDarius Dunn, as he continues to be investigated for aggravated assault. The case is likely to be dismissed as the victim is stating no damage was done. The Baylor community is hopeful that he will be back within the next few weeks.

However, the Bears will have to rely on some new talent as well as old to get the job done.

The Bears lost star players Ekpe Udoh, Josh Lomers, and Tweety Carter to either the NBA or graduation. However, the bears have gained much talent during the off-season. They gained a ESPN 100 player in Perry Jones. The 6' 10" Power Forward is expected to make great contributions for the bears. The bears will also rely heavily on Quincy Acy and A.J. Walton. These returning players will be key in getting the Bears back to the elite 8 and hopefully further.

Another addition they will look to is J'mison Morgan, the 6' 11" transfer from UCLA. He will be a major factor in replacing big man Josh Lomers and should see plenty of playing time as the season progresses.

This season should be an fun one, with loads of new talent as well as old. The Bears and the Baylor community remain positive that the team will be able to exceed expectations and deliver a winning season.

See you tonight at the Ferrell Center Baylor fans!
