Baylor Bears Basketball Update: Opening Weekend Sees Baylor Face Off Vs. Texas Southern

As the Baylor Bears prepare for their opening contest versus Texas Southern, people are beginning to wonder if Scott Drew's roster is among the most exhilarating.

Baylor Bears' head coach Scott Drew goes into the 2011-12 college basketball season with a conundrum on his hands. For most coaches, having questions about your teams with no answers could be the beginning of the end before the season even starts. However, Drew's issues are a problem most coaches would love to have...

How do I get all of this talent on the floor?

Some have said that this collection of talent could be the most exciting college basketball has to offer, at Baylor's Midnight Madness the players left no doubt.

SLAM's Michael Bradley take on Baylor's prospectus this season:

The Bears’ late-season collapse torpedoed their ’11 Tourney hopes, but there should be no repeat this time. Quincy Acy, Perry Jones and Quincy Miller are top-shelf, and if JC newcomer Pierre Jackson can handle the point, look out.

Baylor faces Texas Southern on Friday, November 11th in Waco. Here is a full roster for the 2011-12 Bears.
