UAPB (1-8) was just four points behind at halftime in last Tuesday's game against North Texas, but produced its best performance of the season in the second half. Tulane is 8-0 and has won five of its last six games by at least 30 points, and Baylor has scored 80 points in six of those games this season. That was all but over when freshman guard LJ Cryer hit a pair of 3-pointers and a free throw in a stretch of 1 1 / 2 minutes, giving Baylor a 24-4 lead.
Starting with a dunk by Tchamwa Tchoutchoua after an assist by Mayer, the Bears pulled away with 22 points and extended the lead to 39-4 with five minutes left. MaCio Teague gave up the game's first double-double by hitting two three-pointers off the line and hitting 5-of-5 while Jared Butler, who scored 14 points and seven assists, finished the run.
Jordan Walker had another strong night, scoring 15 points and completing 5 of 7 throws from the field, including 3 for 4 from the field. Baylor's bench outperformed the Golden Lion Reserve, with Cryer leading the way with 10 points, while senior shooting guard De'Aaron Fox and junior forward Andrew Wiggins both missed for the second straight game with back-to-back fouls in the first half because of foul problems. Baylor was aggressive, however, making 10 of 11 from deep, while Loveday and Turner continued to develop.
The Green Wave had five different players scoring goals, but the last time they didn't did so was in the first half when they shot 0-14 from the outside.

Jonathan Tchamwa - Tchatchoua had 10 points and eight boards, while Matthew Mayer added 12 points, while freshman Zach Loveday and Jordan Turner each had 11 points and seven rebounds for the Green Wave. Turner knocked down a 3-pointer and was 4-for-4 from the line and L-Loveday was 2-of-5 from three-point range, by far the most game time of the year.
