Baylor Men’s Basketball Postpones Three More Games

Three more Baylor MBB games postponed

This post is basically a re-share of what I wrote a few days ago when Baylor Athletics announced the Baylor Men’s Basketball team activities were put on pause due to unforseen conditions (assuming they’re COVID related). And to make matters worse, this morning, Baylor Athletics shared an updated statement about three more games being put on pause because of Big 12 Conference men’s basketball interruption guidelines. The other day I praised this Baylor team and wrote “I’ve been writing more posts about the Baylor Men’s Basketball team not only because football isn’t in season and I love basketball, but also since this team is probably one of the greatest in Baylor history! Of course there are arguments to be made for each of the noteworthy basketball squads throughout modern Baylor Athletics history, but it’s easy to see why this 2020-2021 could go all the way in March—a feat they’ve never accomplished. Usually the nation’s top teams exist around a star squad member (someone like former Kansas PG Frank Mason) making every bucket and more, but this team doesn’t have that element. Instead, Baylor MBB is a true team effort. For example, I wrote about junior guard/small forward Matthew Mayer the other day and how his contributions to the team as one of the “next man up” guards takes this Baylor group to the next level.” Head Coach Scott Drew announced that the team’s playing activities are on pause and the five upcoming games against TCU, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, and two West Virginia match ups would be negatively affected by the news. “This Baylor team has had a few games postponed and rescheduled or cancelled (remember when they were supposed to face No. 1 Gonzaga before both teams were in their prime?), but this postponement news is most upsetting to hear because all signs pointed to Baylor just finding their groove and hitting their winning stride at the perfect point of the season. Unfortunately it looks like the squad can’t catch a break and their performances in the remaining games could be impacted by this delay.” Because we don’t know whether the Bears will be able to reschedule all of these challenges before the Big 12 tournament, I think Baylor fans may be anxious about the games and their results!
