NCAA men’s basketball: No. 5 Baylor opens season 2-0

The men’s college basketball season is officially in the books.

In the first NCAA basketball season under NCAA rules since the start of the Great Recession, Baylor opened the season 2 – 0 against No. 3 Kansas State.

The Bears opened with a 73-53 win over the Wildcats in their debut at the ATP rankings.

Baylor’s first win of the season, a 73 – 66 victory over Kansas State, was the first time the Bears had beaten an opponent ranked in the top 10 since defeating #2 Kansas State on March 8, 2018.

Baylor had a bye in the regular season and then returned to action on Thursday when it opened against No, 3 Oklahoma State.

Bears freshman forward Tyler Davis led the way for Baylor with 16 points.

Freshman guard Luke Fischer added 16 points and 12 rebounds.

With Baylor’s season opener against the Wildcats now behind them, head coach Luke Mayfield and his staff must now decide if they want to continue with the same system that they ran during the Big 12 tournament and continue the trend of success from the last two years.
