With NCAA basketball in full swing, we decided to make the short drive to Fort Worth and see Texas Christian University take on Baylor in their first ever Big 12 meeting. The Bears has put St. John's to the sword earlier in the season and it would be an opportunity to see how good the once ranked Bears really were. Unfortunately, the Horned Frogs of TCU were poor opposition, having lost the first six of their Big 12 games. The home fans were well out-numbered by the Baylor faithful and the visiting team did not disappoint.
Pierre Jackson scored 20 and Isiah Austin (all 7' 1'' of him) contributed 18 as the Bears ran out 82-56 winners. Guard Brady Heslip who torched St. John's from three point land (he had eight three's) was kept quiet and had only eight points.
The Frog fans will remind themselves that basketball is secondary. Last October TCU beat Baylor 49-21 where it matters most in Texas - on the football field.
