THEY SAID IT
Baylor Head Coach Ellen White on the Bears’ performance
“It was good for us to bounce back after losing to them in the season, I felt we were dominant at times, and I was glad to see us perform well. There are still things to improve and work on, but overall they really worked well and continued to ride well. Even if a teammate lost, the next one showed up and didn’t lose focus at all.”
Baylor heads to Fresno, Calif. Thursday and Friday for the Fresno Invitational where the Bears will take on Fresno State and SMU.
