The Baylor Bears were one of the better teams in the Big 12 but not good enough to win the regular season championship ultimately. Still, the Bears made gamblers happy with a solid profit margin as a consistent value. Baylor will be making its fifth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and the nine in the past ten March Madness tournaments. Baylor has one of the top offenses in college basketball with a lineup full of 3-point sharpshooters. However, their defense was a liability as far as its championship prospects.

The Baylor Bears program remains at the top of college hoops programs, starting with head coach Scott Drew. He has mastered the art of culture-building and recruits players who fit a certain identity of toughness. There’s no reason to believe that the winning will slow down, and for a fourth straight year, a national title is a real possibility.

For Baylor Bears men’s basketball, these are the best of times. In fact, it hasn’t been this good since 1946-50, when the Bears made the Final Four twice. Their best finish then was a loss in the 1948 national championship game. From 1950 through 2008, Baylor had only one invite to the Big Dance (1988) and was bounced in the first round. But in 2003, Baylor made the most important move in program history. Baylor hired Scott Drew as its head coach. And the program renaissance began. Baylor is now one of the best programs in the country. Bears basketball is also valuable to the sport and the university itself.

Baylor is one of the best rebuilds in college basketball, with head coach Scott Drew leading the Bears to their first-ever Big 12 title and national championship in 2021. However, multiple draft picks later, Baylor no longer possesses the championship caliber they once did. Initially ranked highly at the start of last season, the Bears fell drastically after losses to Iowa State in the first round of the Big 12 Tournament and in the second round of March Madness to Creighton. The Bears are ranked at No. 20 in the AP poll for this upcoming season, considerably lower than they have been in the past two campaigns.
