Baylor men's basketball faced off against the Kansas State Wildcats yesterday, winning 82-74 on day two of the Big XII tournament. I tuned in, and like so many others, was awestruck by the Bears "highlighter" uniforms. PJ3 played "upper-case", scoring 31 points and grabbing 11 rebounds--his best performance I have witnessed at Baylor. I hope he can keep it up as tournament play continues.
During the game yesterday, Blair Kerkhoff of the Kansas City Star asked for reactions to the uniforms on Twitter, and I'm glad to say I was quoted this morning in the paper. Here is my quote:

Scot McKnight also expressed his love for them on Facebook. I'm glad to have him on the Baylor bandwagon.
Baylor plays Kansas today, having been embarrassed by the Jayhawks twice this year. I hoping for a Baylor win, though many of my neighbors are pulling for a KU vs. MU rematch for the final.
