Baylor Vs. Oklahoma Final: Pierre Jackson Leads The Way, Bears Win 70-60

The Baylor Bears have some legitimate all-world talents on their roster, but when Scott Drew needs a big play the one person he's consistently been able to call on has been his junior college point guard Pierre Jackson. Jackson exploded for a huge second half, finishing with 18 points including hitting big threes down the stretch to give the Bears a 70-60 win over the Oklahoma Sooners.

Jackson shot 4-of-6 from three-point range, and along with Brady Heislip's 16 points the Bears were able to overcome a 3-point deficit at halftime to win by 10 over Oklahoma. The Sooners received a big effort from Steven Pledger as the junior guard went for 21 points on the Bears defense. Romero Osby and Cameron Clark also chipped in with 12 points each.

Perry Jones III struggled again on Saturday, finishing with just 8 points and 6 rebounds in just 22 minutes of action. In the last 6 games Jones has averaged just 8.3 points/game.
