WACO, Texas The Baylor Bears have left Waco for Salt Lake City, Utah where they'll open the NCAA Tournament Thursday night against Syracuse.
For Baylor, the NCAA Tournament means a new beginning. The Bears have put together a really nice season but it ended badly. The Bears lost their final three regular season games, then dropped their Big 12 Tournament opener to Iowa State. So they limp into the NCAA Tournament off of four straight losses.
Senior King McClure says that losing skid is ancient history. He calls the tournament a new start and says he and his teammates are excited and ready to go.
