Breaking Down the Box Score: Baylor


1.)  When your starters all score in the double-digits, you will win a lot of games.  The starters carried the load for Iowa State on Saturday night, scoring 88% of the team’s points.  Ideally you would like more than 10 points off the bench, but I’m not complaining.  Hopefully, the five can keep it up through the tournaments.

2.)  In Scott Christopherson’s last game at Hilton, Christopherson led the team to a great win.  It would be hard to find a better ending to Scott Christopherson’s senior night than that.  As you can see, Scotty shot 50% from the field on his way to scoring 23 points, and dished out 6 assists.

3.)  Melvin Ejim had a great game but it was overshadowed by it being senior night.  Ejim was efficient, missing only 1 shot of his 6 attempts and ended with 15.

4.)  The same old from Royce White.

5.)  Baylor took 8 more shots yet still lost by 8 points.  A reason for the win is the fact that the Cyclones took 14 more free throws than the Bears (although they didn’t shoot that great from the line).

6.)  17 assists on 57 shots isn’t too bad.

7.)  The stats don’t indicate how well Chris Babb played on the defense, but Babb’s defending was a big reason for the upset.

8.)  25% from behind the arc isn’t bad, but the Cyclones shot 11% better from 3-point land.  If Baylor could have had one or two more 3-pointer fall, it may have been a different story.

9.)  Like I said earlier, Baylor lost although they had 8 more field goal attempts than the ‘Clones.
