Baylor won its initial game in its new, neon-yellow uniforms the Bears will don during the postseason. Coach Scott Drew noted the Bears made only 14 turnovers in today’s 82-74 victory over Kansas State after having 18 in both regular-season matchups.
“Maybe it was the uniforms. We saw who we were passing to,” Drew said.
No doubt, the bright-colored jersies _ and matching socks _ created conversations. Guard A.J. Walton said: “I’m not really a fan of the brightness.” But fellow point guard Pierre Jackson praised the new look.
“I think it kind of distracts the other team,” Jackson said. “It gets their eyes on us, not the ball.”
