Sports Take: Baylor men’s basketball is on its way to blue blood status

By Will Chamblee | Sports Writer

Baylor men’s basketball is in the midst of a golden age under Scott Drew.

Before Drew’s arrival in 2003, the program had only made the NCAA tournament four times in over 50 years. Since then, Drew has led the Bears to eight NCAA tournament appearances and two Elite Eight appearances.

Drew’s efforts have placed Baylor on the edge of the coveted ‘blue blood’ status in men’s college basketball and it’s not unreasonable to say that Baylor could make the jump in the next decade.

The term “blue blood” refers to a select number of college basketball programs that have consistently excelled over an extended period of time.
