Baylor Vs. Texas Final Score: Bears Have Big Second Half To Defeat Longhorns, 77-72

The Texas Longhorns blew a 10-point halftime lead, or if you prefer the Baylor Bears overcame a 10-point halftime deficit to win 77-72. Baylor outscored Texas 51 to 36 in the second half to get a much needed win.

In the second half Baylor kept chipping away at Texas' lead and finally took their first lead of the second half when Perry Jones III hit a jumper with 7:03 left in the game to give Baylor a 56-55 lead. Baylor then took the lead for good when Quincy Acy made a layup to give Baylor a 67-65 lead with 3:37 left in the game.

Texas had a chance to win the game but J'Covan Brown, who scored 18 to lead Texas, had a critical turnover with 12 seconds left that prevented Texas from shooting for a tie. Baylor's Pierre Jackson hit a pair of free throws to seal the win.

Texas Vs. Baylor Halftime Score: Longhorns Lead Bears 36-26

The Baylor Bears are trying to recover from their recent struggles where they have lost three of their last four, but the way the game against the Texas Longhorns is going that losing streak may continue. Texas is leading Baylor 36-26 at the half and Baylor is lucky that the margin is not larger as they are shooting 26 percent compared to Texas' 50 percent from the field.

The scoring for Texas is spread out over the team with J'Covan Brown leading the way with nine points all coming from three-point range, and Baylor is being lead by Quincy Acy who has eight points and eight rebounds. Baylor's Perry Jones III is struggling shooting the ball tonight as he is one-of-four from the field and has five points overall.

Baylor needs to step up their offensive game if they want to get back in this game against Texas, because shooting 26 percent from the field is not going to cut it.

Texas Vs. Baylor: Are The Longhorns' Tourney Hopes On The Line?

Texas is certainly on the bubble for NCAA Tournament consideration, but which side is still to be determined. At 17-10 overall and 6-5 in Big 12 play entering tonight's game against Baylor, the Longhorns are without a signature win to boost their at-large resume. Chuck Carlton of the Dallas Morning News mentions this scenario, and barring an upset against Kansas, Baylor could be Texas' last shot at an impressive win:

So the Longhorns find themselves with one more win-and-in, lose-and-out game against Baylor, which has concerns of its own. Conventional wisdom says Texas needs to beat Baylor or Kansas to have that elusive signature win to impress the selection committee, barring a Big 12 tournament run. In Texas' defense, it's a much better team now that the group that lost to North Carolina State and Oregon State in November and even better than last month. The young players seem to be responding to Rick Barnes and could be an even tougher out in the NCAA Tournament than the last couple of Texas teams.
