Arlington, TX - Kenny Chery dropped 18 points as No. 20 Baylor took down third-ranked Kentucky, 67-62. Isaiah Austin and Cory Jefferson posted 13 points apiece in the triumph, as Baylor (8-1) topped Kentucky (7-2) for the second time in as many seasons.
“We’re a great program just like they were a great program,” Jefferson said. “So it wasn’t mismatches as anybody may think. We just came out two great teams playing hard.”
The Wildcats notched a huge win last Friday over Duke 72-66 in the championship game of the NIT Season Tip-Off at Madison Square Garden. Nick Johnson is having himself a great season so far, leading the team in scoring at 17.1 points and has scored in double-figures in every game this season. The Wildcats are 8-0 to begin the young season.

The freshmen keep getting all the attention so far during the young college basketball season and West coast fans should pay attention to another talented baller in Jabari Bird from Cal.
The California Golden Bears are off to a 4-0 start with Bird leading the team in scoring with a 13.5 mark so far. The 6’6 guard is also averaging 4.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, shooting 43% from the field, 50% from the three-point line and 84% at the free-throw line in 24.3 minutes. Bird has scored in double-figures in two of the four games.
Entering his 13th season as head coach at Wisconsin, Bo Ryan has been a model of consistency.
In his 12 seasons with the Badgers, Ryan’s team has never finished worse than tied for fourth in the Big Ten. He led his team to an NCAA Tournament bid in every one of those 12 seasons.
