NEW ORLEANS -- Baylor coach Scott Drew's postgame locker room chat with his team dragged on longer than usual before he emerged -- behind schedule -- to discuss as big a victory as many Bears fans can remember."Sorry I'm late. We haven't won a tournament game in a long time," Drew said. "I know there are happy players in there."
• Baylor picks up its first NCAA tournament victory since 1950, thanks to the strong play of Ekpe Udoh. Udoh (20 points, 13 rebounds) recorded his 15th double-double of the season.
• In their first tournament since 2003, the Bearkats continued the trend of the Southland Conference -- the conference has lost 26 of its last 28 NCAA tournament games.
• The 59 points marks the lowest total for Sam Houston State since a Dec. 28 loss (48).
