Baylor beats Texas in double overtime

Terry Maston came off the bench to key Baylor's win as he scored a career-high 26 points as he hit 12 of 17 field goals.

Monday night, Terry Maston's was smoking hot.

The Bears added some talent to both sides of the ball with the 2018 recruiting class. Baylor added 23 commits in total and finished with the fourth best class in the Big 12. Smart said they were "hashing some things out", among themselves.

Coleman's 3-pointer and layup on successive possessions in the final minute of regulation brought Texas within 55-54 with 26.6 seconds to play.

Baylor senior center Jo Lual-Acuil, Jr. scored on a put back dunk with eight seconds left to give the Bears the road win.

"I knew Mo was going to come over and try to block the shot".

The Longhorns had a last shot to win it.

"I just think it was a stupid decision on my part, and I definitely didn't want it to cost us the game because we're in a spot where we need every game right now", Maston said. But it was his instincts that paid off in a double overtime win against Texas. "We're just clicking right now on offense and defense".

Two weeks ago, the Bears were sitting alone at the bottom of the conference standings at 2-7, losing six of seven in a January tailspin. It could still be a tough year for Baylor in the Big 12 in 2018, but they're going to get better with their second-year head coach's toughness and developing offensive talent. "That's what's helping us the most". Lecomte scored 16 for the Bears.

Trailing 73-72 after Kerwin Roach hit a basket for Texas with 20 seconds remaining, Lecomte missed his drive to the basket when 6-11 Texas center Mo Bamba attempted to block the shot.

Nothing came easy on a night that saw both teams struggle offensively. "And some of these guys are really angry, because some of those guys put their egos aside and came together in terms of attacking and battling". It makes it tough. With that being said, particularly in the first half, they didn't let it get them down at all. "We're starting to do it for each other and we're starting to share the ball and we're starting to look for everyone".

Specifically, they couldn't stop Maston. "When somebody's hot, we always go back to him until somebody stops him", Lual-Acuil said. "TJ played phenomenal. He pretty much carried us down the stretch".

The Bears held Texas to just two points in the first four minutes of the second half while Lindsey and Lual-Acuil each found lanes to the basket to increase the Baylor lead to 29-24 at the 16:27 mark of the second half. Coleman came on late with 3-pointer and a layup in the final minute of regulation, and a pair of free throws that helped force overtime.

Lual-Acuil drained a left shoulder hook shot and the Bears held the Longhorns to 1-for-12 shooting from the field in the first nine minutes of the game to propel them to a 9-4 lead with 11 minutes left in the first half.

Coleman got to the line on the next possession, tying the game at 56 with two free throws.

This time, Baylor had enough to finish it, even though Texas hit back-to-back go-ahead shots in the last two minutes.

Baylor plays three of its next four at home, facing seventh-ranked and league-leading Texas Tech (21-4, 9-3) at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the Ferrell Center.
