I feel bad for Baylor fans. Drew has no clue how bad they are on offense: “We needed a win. We’ve played well enough to win a couple games, and we haven’t. And that’s because the Big 12 is a great conference, and the margin for error is small. As a coach, I’m just pleased that the guys have stayed together.” (ESPN)

So Baylor’s gameplan was to shut down Forte…and it worked? (NewsOK)

Ford: “We knew they were going to come inside. We knew that was exactly what was going to happen. We thought we did a decent job on Austin and Jefferson in the first half and then Gathers comes out there and gets 12.” So why did Heslip shoot 13 wide-open threes? (Scout)

This was the college basketball ending of the weekend. Wow! (Deadspin)

Inside the OSU-Baylor box score. (PFB)

Ford on Markel: “We have to start getting the ball to the guys who are making shots. When guys are hot like that, we have to keep feeding them, and we didn’t do a great job of that in big situations.” I promise that’s not the issue. (O’Colly)

I actually don’t feel like Baylor looked like a new team. They looked like a team that banged a bunch of threes in the second half and got lucky that they were somehow playing a team more undisciplined than them. That’s not a good team, it’s a good situation. (CBS Sports)
