THEY SAID IT
Glenn Moore on Baylor’s performance
“We had a couple of breakdowns defensively in that second game that cost us the game, but I told our team after the game that Louisiana is a good ball club. They hit well and there’s a reason we brought them in for a midweek doubleheader. It’s because they’re a good team that will prepare us for Big 12 competition. I’m disappointed we didn’t come out with a win, but we’ll keep working to improve.”
Baylor plays on the road at UTSA Wednesday at 6 p.m. in a single game.
