No. 6 WSU Rallies to Edge Baylor, 67-64
Nov. 30, 2007
WACO, Texas (AP) -Derrick Low wasn't having one of his signature shooting nights until No. 6 Washington State needed its leading scorer the most.
Low hit consecutive 3-pointers in a span of 46 seconds to finally push the Cougars in front and they went on to a 67-64 victory Friday night over a scrappy Baylor team looking for a signature victory.
After being held scoreless in the first half, Low was only 1-of-8 shooting until he made a tying 3-pointer with 3:06 left. After Aaron Bruce missed a shot for Baylor (5-1), Low hit another 3 to make it 63-60 and the Cougars remained in front the rest of the way.
Low finished with nine points on three 3-pointers.
Washington State (7-0) is off to its best start since opening the 1991-92 season with 12 straight victories.
Baylor led 44-30 after Bruce made consecutive 3-pointers of his own. Baylor was its deepest into a season without a loss since it started 12-0 in 2000-01.
Bruce had 13 points for Baylor. Curtis Jerrells and LaceDarius Dunn had 11 points.
