  • Preview: Southern at Baylor

    Baylor seeks to improve to 7-0 at home this season when Southern visits Monday night. Without departed standouts Cory Jefferson, Isaiah Austin, Brady Heslip and Gary Franklin, Bears coach Scott Drew has focused on defense this season, joining Virginia as the only teams in the Power 5 conferences to hold all opponents to 65 or fewer points this season. Southern enters averaging 63.3 points per game and hasn't beaten a Division I team this season. The Bears have been off since beating New Mexico State 66-55 on Wednesday behind 16 points from freshman Johnathan Motley, 12 rebounds from Rico Gathers and seven assists from Kenny Chery. Gathers, who had seven steals against New Mexico State, credits communication as the main reason foes are shooting 37.6 percent from the floor, a paltry 25.7 from the arc, and are being outrebounded by over 12 boards a game. "Being able to communicate where the shooters are, being able to communicate where the cutters are going, being able to do that stuff," Gathers told reporters.
