FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Matthew Mayer just knew it was a perfect pass he turned into a half-ending breakaway dunk for defending national champion Baylor. He wasn't really sure what happened before he got the ball.
"I thought it was like a rebound or something, and then all of sudden the ball was just right in front of me," Mayer said. "I was like, `Wow, that was great.'"
Mayer scored a career-high 22 points, including that punctuating half-ending dunk with a salute, as the top-seeded Bears opened the NCAA Tournament with an 85-49 victory over Norfolk State on Thursday.
