No. 4 Baylor still unbeaten with 106-65 win
BAYLOR 106, OKLAHOMA ST 65

By STEPHEN HAWKINS
AP Basketball Writer

WACO, Texas (AP) -- There was a barrage of 3-pointers, alley-oop
passes for highlight dunks, a huge rebounding advantage and all
those assists for No. 4 Baylor.



And finally a breather for the Bears, who remained undefeated
with a 106-65 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday.



"That's just the depth we have. We have a lot of confidence in
each other. We know how to play with each other," Perry Jones
III said. "It's just having guys on the floor that you're
comfortable with, and everybody's comfortable with everybody. So
that's a plus for us."



Jones, the preseason Big 12 player of the year, had 19 points on
8-of-12 shooting with 12 rebounds. Freshman Quincy Miller had a
season-high 21 points and newcomer Pierre Jackson scored 18
points with five of Baylor's season-high 15 3-pointers.



Baylor (17-0, 4-0) extended its school-record winning streak to
17 games in advance of a big test Monday night at No. 10 Kansas.
The Bears went into Saturday as one of three undefeated teams in
major college basketball, along with No. 1 Syracuse and No. 15
Murray State



"They played great. We played bad. There you go," said Cowboys
coach Travis Ford, who answered only one question in his
postgame news conference that lasted less than 30 seconds. "They
played really, really, really well. Really, really, really
well."



It would certainly be hard to argue with him.



The Bears scored their most points ever in a Big 12 game that
didn't go to overtime. It was their most 3-pointers in a game
since making 15 against Prairie View on Dec. 13, 2008, but still
five short of the school record set in 1995.



Baylor, coming off a 75-73 victory at Kansas State that was its
third two-point win in five games, had a 48-25 rebounding
advantage along with 25 assists against Oklahoma State. The
Bears shot 53 percent overall (36 of 68) and 52 percent on
3-pointers (15 of 29) and were well in control by halftime
despite a slow start.



Keiton Page and Markel Brown each had 15 points for the youthful
Cowboys (9-8, 2-2), whose primary eight-man rotation includes
five freshmen and only one senior.



"There are not a lot of games where you have everybody play and
everybody contributes," Baylor coach Scott Drew said. "Everybody
that played gave something to the team, did something for the
team that made us better. As a coach, that's when you're
happiest, when you players are all happy."



Six Bears made 3-pointers, nine scored and 10 had a rebound.



Quincy Acy had 15 points, six rebounds and two blocked shots,
swatting one away with so much force midway through the second
half that the ball wound up landing on the Oklahoma State bench.



"Just relieving some anger," Acy said. "I had like six
turnovers, it was just all bad."



A couple of minutes later, Acy made a 3-pointer and walked away
holding up three fingers toward his teammates.



The Bears already had eight 3-pointers by halftime, when they
led 46-31. Jones then started the second half with a short
baseline jumper.



Jones put the Bears up 61-41 with 13:52 left when he made a
layup after an alley-oop pass from Miller was just mistimed.



But everything worked out perfectly on a highlight play in the
first half. Jackson moved around a defender near the free throw
line, but instead of taking the open shot threw an alley-oop
pass to Jones for a monster dunk and a 33-23 lead.



Ford quickly called a timeout and was on the court almost before
the play was done.



The Cowboys have dominated the series, including a 22-7
advantage since 1998. But Baylor has won the last six meetings
in the Ferrell Center, including Saturday.



Things were going so good for Baylor that Jackson made a
3-pointer late in the first half after the ball rolled around
the rim a few times. When the ball finally dropped through the
hoop for a 41-27 lead, the 5-foot-10 Jackson did a
pirouette-like move near halfcourt.



Brady Heslip then stole the ball from Cezar Guerrero, who was
still face-down on the court when Acy slammed the ball home.



Jackson made another 3-pointer from the top of the key in the
final minute of the first half.



Baylor got off to a slow start, even though Miller hit a
3-pointer in the opening minute of the game. The Bears didn't
score again until Heslip made a 3-pointer to tie the game at 6
with 16:36 left, and then went another 2 minutes before Jones
hit a jumper that made it 8-6 and put them ahead to stay.



Jones dismissed the idea of this being a statement game for
Baylor before going to Kansas.



"No, not at all. Just taking it one game at a time," Jones said.
"Not looking ahead until it's time. Now it's time to get ready
for Kansas. And that's what we need to focus on now."
