Quincy Acy Leads Baylor Past Texas

February 21st, 2012
Quincy Acy was too much for Texas

Both Baylor and Texas needed a win on Monday night albeit for different reasons. Scott Drew's Bears arrived in Austin two days after losing to Kansas State at home, and despite their status as a likely high seed losing three of their last four games wasn't the best way to bolster their resume.
