Baylor Men Advance, Will Face Creighton

SAN ANTONIO (March 21, 2014) No. 23 Baylor defeated Nebraska 74-60 Friday in San Antonio to advance to the next round of the NCAA Tournament.

Cory Jefferson scored 16 points as No. 6 seed Baylor kept 11th-seeded Nebraska winless in its NCAA tournament history with the victory Friday.

The Bears (25-11) kept up a two-month tear and will play either No. 3 seed Creighton or No. 14 seed Louisiana-Lafayette on Sunday.

Baylor has won 11 of 13 after a dismal start in the Big 12, recapturing the kind of momentum that vaulted the Bears to the Elite Eight in 2010 and 2012.

Terran Petteway scored 18 points for Nebraska (19-13), which fell to 0-7 in tournament history.

The Cornhuskers hadn't played on this stage since 1998 and often looked like it.

Frustration boiled over for Big Ten coach of the year Tim Miles, who was ejected with 11 minutes left.

Baylor will face Creighton Sunday in the round of 32. The Blue Jays beat Louisiana-Lafayette 76-66. Tip-off is set for 6:45 pm in San Antonio.
