Baylor hoops previews Alcorn State, Drew's 300th win

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

When Baylor basketball takes on Alcorn State Nov 17 at the Ferrell Center, it will be for more than another victory.

Head Coach Scott Drew will reach his 300th career win with a victory over the Braves.

"I didn't know about it until you just asked," Drew said, "It's something that players, coaches, and everybody else makes it all happen. For me personally it's not a big deal but for everyone else it's a huge accomplishment."

Drew's players however, were more willing to give the head bear credit.

"It really just speaks to the job he and the staff have done," said junior guard Jake Lindsey, "It's pretty cool that as a Baylor fan we can appreciate that. I'm not sure we appreciate it enough. He doesn't get the credit he deserves."

To get to that benchmark, Drew's team still has to go through an ASU team who barely lost their conference championship to Texas Southern last season.

"This is a team that has a chance to win the [Southwestern Athletic Conference]," said Drew, "Any night you want to know about college basketball you just turn on the TV. Central Arkansas, who we were beating by 42, was leading UCLA by 1 with 3.7 seconds left in the game."

The Green and Gold host Alcorn State Nov 17 at the Ferrell Center. Tip-off is scheduled for 8:00 p.m., after this, the Bears begin a long road stand with games at Wisconsin (Nov 20) and at Xavier (Nov 28), before returning home to host Wichita State Dec 2.
