WACO, Texas (AP) Seventh-ranked Baylor was just fine after finally settling back in at home after a weekend in Las Vegas.
True freshman Keyonte George scored 17 points and Adam Flagler added 13 with nine assists as the Bears kept helping each other while pulling away for an 89-60 victory after falling behind early against McNeese State on Wednesday.
"First half, I didn't know if we had gotten back from Vegas or not. I thought McNeese really had great intensity, had a great game plan," Bears coach Scott Drew said. "Second half, I thought we did a much better job defensively and imposing our will. That leaves a much better taste in your mouth going into Thanksgiving."
