WACO, Texas – Saturday’s men’s basketball matchup between No. 3 Baylor and No. 5 Missouri is sold out, the Baylor Department of Athletics announced Friday. The game is scheduled to tip at 1:05 p.m. CST on ESPN and ESPN3; Mark Jones (play-by-play), Fran Fraschilla (analyst) and Holly Rowe (sideline reporter) will call the game.
The only remaining tickets are for Baylor faculty, staff and students, and those will be distributed at the door on game day, just as they are for all home games.
Saturday’s game is the first Top 5 and second Top 10 matchup in program history. On Monday in Lawrence, Kan., No. 3 Baylor suffered its first loss of the season, falling to 17-1 on the season. No. 5 Missouri leads the all-time series 13-10, but Baylor has won the last three series meetings in Waco.
It is the eighth Ferrell Center sellout in Scott Drew’s nine-year tenure at Baylor and the first advance sellout in program history.
