Bracketology: The quick rise of Baylor basketball

Remember way, way back on Nov. 3 -- a whole four weeks ago -- when Baylor debuted as a No. 8 seed? Well, things have changed -- in a hurry. The Bears have made a big move.


Indiana State Upsets Butler

Brenton Scott hit a free throw to put Indiana State ahead, giving the Sycamores a 72-71 upset win over No. 16 Butler and setting off a court-storming in Terre Haute.

Another upset in Indiana as Indiana State KO's No. 16 Butler. Brenton Scott finished with 24 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals, and he also made the late, game-winning free throw that sealed the 72-71 win. In late November, his twin brother, Bryson Scott, led Fort Wayne with 18 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals in his team's upset of Indiana. Not a bad stretch for the Scott family.

Heyward scores from far, far away

One coach on Mike White: "Really good young coach and has Florida guarding and playing hard," he said. "The question is whether he can recruit at a high-enough level, especially in the SEC -- where a lot of guys aren't exactly playing by the rules these days." Multiple coaches echoed these comments to me. White probably won't get many McDonald's All-Americans, but does have a pair of Top 75 guys committed for next year: Isaiah Stokes (ESPN, No. 60) and DeAundre Ballard (65).

So focused on Duke last night and play of Kennard, Amile, Tatum — was easy to overlook Florida. Mike White done a nice job with this team.
