Rico Gathers tallied 15 points and 10 boards and Gary Franklin scored 12 on a career-high four 3-pointers for Baylor (14-5, 5-1 Big 12), which is off to a 5-1 start in Big 12 play for the first time since 1997-98. The Bears have won three straight and six of seven, including a season sweep of the Horned Frogs.
