The Bears made a season high sixteen three-pointers. 

Nine-seed Baylor walked away with a 78-69 victory.

We gave Baylor a 57% chance of covering the +2.5 spread against Syracuse.

Here is how we called it coming in:

No. 9 seed Baylor Bears win the always-tough-to-predict 8 vs. 9 matchup against Syracuse. The zone defense of Syracuse is iconic and can be tough to prepare for on short notice, but Baylor has had several days to gameplan for Jim Boeheim's 2-3. And Baylor already has an enormous built-in advantage over the zone to capitalize on.

The books have generally moved the line down from -2.5 to -1.5 in Syracuse's favor even though the Orange were seeing the most action.

Sagarin Ratings indicate a line of -2 for Baylor.

Monday night we pretty much knew by the end of the 5th inning in the Nationals-Rockies game our pick on the OVER would not lose.  That's because the score hit 5-5 with an OVER 11.  The pitching got better after that so we still had a bit of a wait to see the end result.
