Baylor is rocking early in NCAA season so far
The AP reports:
Baylor and Northwestern met on the Wildcats' court, but it was the Bears who felt right at home.
Quincy Acy and Pierre Jackson both scored 16 points and Baylor (No. 8 ESPN/USA Today, No. 7 AP) remained unbeaten with a 69-41 victory Sunday.
Baylor and Northwestern both came in undefeated for the first-ever meeting between the schools but once the game tipped off, that seemed to be about the only thing they had in common. Baylor led by 17 points at halftime and by as many as 32 points in the game.
Four players scored in double figures for the Bears (7-0), who cruised after an early game run. Jackson scored 14 points in the first half, while Perry Jones III added 12 and Brady Heslip 11.
"I've really been impressed with the unselfishness of the players," Baylor coach Scott Drew said. "We just really have good kids and I think they buy into (the) team (concept)."
Acy had six blocks to lead a dominant performance in the paint on both ends of the court. Baylor outscored Northwestern 46-12 in the lane and hit 25 of 30 shots from inside the 3-point line.
