WACO, Texas - The Baylor University community is invited to a send-off rally for the Baylor men's basketball team as the Bears depart for the Sweet 16 at Houston's Reliant Stadium. The send-off rally will take place Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. CDT in front of the Bill Daniels Student Center.
All students, faculty, staff and fans are encouraged to join together to cheer on the Bears before they depart for Houston, and hear from head coach Scott Drew and the team captains. In the event of rain, the send-off will be moved to the Den of the Bill Daniels Student Center.
No. 3 seed Baylor (27-7), which earned its highest tournament seed in school history, advanced to the program's first-ever Sweet 16. The Bears will face No. 10 seed Saint Mary's for a chance to advance to South Regional finals Friday at 6:27 p.m. CDT on CBS.
You can also listen to the game on 1660 ESPN with John Morris and Pat Nunley beginning at 5:57 p.m. CDT. Westwood One will also air the game nationally on Sirius 126 and XM 243.
