No. 11 Texas Holds On For 82-77 Victory Over Baylor
By Denton Ramsey, NCAA Basketball Sportswriter

WACO, Texas — It seems as though the Texas Longhorns had an answer for everything the Baylor Bears did.

Despite a remarkable run, with BU rattling off six straight points in a matter of seconds, the Bears fell to the Horns on Saturday evening, Feb. 16, at the Ferrell Center.

In front of a sold out and rowdy home crowd – the largest in the arena’s history – Baylor made a big comeback late, only to fall 82-77.

With the Bears down just one, 77-76 with 28.4 seconds remaining in regulation, Baylor’s Aaron Bruce called an untimely timeout – as BU was out of timeouts when he signaled to the officials for the call.

Due to Bruce’s momentary lapse of reason, Texas went to the other end for two free throws – with A.J. Abrams missing the second and the Horns on top 78-76.

However, LaceDarius Dunn missed a quick three for BU – forcing the home team to foul down the stretch as Texas hung on for a victory in Waco, defeating Baylor 82-77.
