By Denton Ramsey, NCAA Basketball Sportswriter

WACO, Texas — Unfortunately for the Big 12’s green and gold, the Baylor Bears (17-7 overall, 5-5 Big 12) have now dropped three straight conference games.

On Saturday, Feb. 16 at the BU Ferrell Center, Baylor fell to No. 11 Texas (21-4, 8-2) in a home court heartbreaker – battling back for an unprecedented run with a little over 3:30 remaining – dropping an 82-77 decision under the Bears’ gold dome.

After shooting just under 24 percent in the first half, while going 1-for-17 from long range in that same stretch, Baylor hit seven three-pointers in the second half while draining 60 percent of their shots from the field (18-for-30).

LaceDarius Dunn and Henry Dugat led the BU hoops team in scoring, with both players putting up 19 points apiece in the Bears loss to the Longhorns.

Also scoring in double-figures for Baylor was Kevin Rogers (12 points), Curtis Jerrells (11) and Tweety Carter (11).

Damion James led the charge for UT, netting 19 points as Texas held on for another Big 12 victory to improve the Horns’ conference mark to 8-2.
