Att.–9,656. Officials–Rick Hartzell, Bert Smith, J.B. Caldwell.

Spradling sits

Will Spradling was in the starting lineup, but he didn’t play after the opening 5 minutes. The junior guard struggled to stay with Baylor sharp-shooter Brady Heslip and didn’t score before Weber benched him.

He wasn’t playing well, but he likely would have returned to the game if not for getting hit in the chest last week against Texas. He played through pain against Texas Tech on Monday, but was in too much discomfort Saturday.

Colorado flashback

The last time Rodney McGruder made a three-pointer at the buzzer, it didn’t count. As a sophomore, from almost the same spot on the court, he made a three-pointer that would have lifted K-State to a victory at Colorado. But officials determined the shot was late, and waved it off. The Buffaloes won in regulation. McGruder said his teammates jokingly told him he redeemed himself on Saturday.

Henriquez coming on

Jordan Henriquez seems to play his best basketball against Baylor. The senior forward had hist first double-double against the Bears two weeks ago. On Saturday he had eight points and nine rebounds.

That’s bright

Every fan who attended Saturday’s game was given a neon green T-shirt to wear. It was part of a campaign Baylor labeled a “Neon Out.” The loud shirts matched Baylor’s uniforms.
