HOLDING COURT AT HOME
• Since the start of the 2007-08 season, Baylor is 67-15 at the Ferrell Center (24-13 in Big 12 home games), including a 41-6 home mark in the last three seasons (15-6 in Big 12 home games).

THE FRESHMAN 20
• Freshman F Quincy Miller chipped in 20 points in Baylor's 72-57 road loss Feb. 11 at Missouri -- his fourth 20-point performance of the season. Miller and sophomore F Perry Jones III are the only Baylor players with more than two 20-point outings; both have four 20-point games.

JUST HOW HE DREW IT UP: BAYLOR RECENT SUCCESS IN THE BIG 12
• Baylor is 40-36 in Big 12 games in the last five seasons and has tallied the four highest Big 12 win totals in program history during that span -- 11 in 2009-10, 9 in 2007-08, 8 in 2011-12 and 7 in 2010-11.
• In the first 11 seasons of the Big 12 Conference, Baylor amassed a 45-131 league record. Prior to Scott Drew's arrival in 2003, Baylor won only 33 Big 12 games in the conference's first seven seasons.

HALFTIME INDICATOR
• Baylor is 19-0 this season when leading at halftime, posting a 121-24 record in the Scott Drew era, and has won seven straight Big 12 games when leading at the half.
• Baylor is 2-4 this season when it trails at the half and has lost four straight Big 12 games when trailing at the half.

#THECARDIACBEARS
• Baylor's 64-60 win Feb. 4 at Oklahoma State was the fifth time this season that the Bears made the game-tying, go-ahead or game-winning basket in the final 3 minutes of regulation or overtime.
• Four of those five belong to PG Pierre Jackson, who has five go-ahead, game-tying or game-winning plays to his credit this season. In Baylor's 83-80 OT win Dec. 23 vs. West Virginia, Jackson's 3-pointer with 27 seconds left in the second half tied the game and ultimately forced overtime. Five days later, Jackson provided the game-winning layup with 28 seconds left to give Baylor a 54-52 win Dec. 28 vs. Mississippi State.
• In Big 12 play, Jackson has drained both a go-ahead (Jan. 28 vs. Texas, 2:36 remaining) and a game-winning (Feb. 1 at Texas A&M, 17 seconds left) 3-pointer.
Quincy Acy's layup (assist from Jackson) with 1:29 remaining in the second half put Baylor up for good en route to a 64-60 road win Feb. 4 at Oklahoma State.

#CLUTCH IN CLOSE GAMES
• Baylor entered the season with a sub-.500 record in games decided by 5 points or fewer in the Scott Drew era. This season, Baylor is 7-1 in such games with six wins coming away from home.

• Baylor's lone loss decided by 5 points or fewer this season was a 1-point loss Jan. 21 to Missouri (89-88).

#ACYWITHTHESMASH
