Fresh off the program's first national tournament championship in 2012-13, Baylor is looking to carry the momentum created by a five-game run through the NIT to greater heights in the upcoming season.
The Bears return three starters and seven letterwinners from last season's team that finished 23-14 overall and claimed wins over No. 4 Kansas and at No. 8 Kentucky.
Head coach Scott Drew is entering his 11th season at Baylor, and he needs 23 wins to tie the program's all-time record. Drew welcomes three nationally-ranked signees from the prep ranks and two junior transfers, and with one of the nation's top returning frontcourts, the Bears are poised to make a run at a Big 12 Championship in 2014.
