16 times Baylor had entered Allen Fieldhouse. They’ve had the No. 2 team. They’ve been 17-0. They’ve had a top 10 pick. They’ve led by five with less than two minutes remaining. And each time, often in heartbreaking fashion, the Bears have fallen.
But Baylor didn’t care about the past today. All streaks end. And on January 11, 2020, the best team in the Big 12, Baylor, knocked off Kansas 67-55. The road to a Big 12 title goes through Waco. And Baylor has as good of a case as anyone to be the No. 1 team in America.
