OKLAHOMA CITY -- Scott Drew watched his Baylor team fall apart with a midseason swoon that wiped away some newfound high expectations in his program.After three upsets in as many days, his Bears are on the verge of making all those struggles a distant memory.
• Baylor had won three games between Jan. 21 and March 10 (went 3-10 in its 13 games prior to the Big 12 tournament).
• Baylor, winner of only five Big 12 games all season, is the first No. 9 seed to reach the Big 12 tournament final. No team seeded lower than third has won the tournament.
• Texas was outrebounded 35-27 and allowed Baylor 21 points off of 18 offensive rebounds.
• The Bears' last three-game win streak came in 2008 during their non-conference portion of the schedule.
