It's not happening, though.
The Bears improved to 21-3 on Wednesday with a 72-69 win at Oklahoma State that provided them with their 10th top-50 RPI victory. No other team in the country has more than eight. So when the NCAA Tournament selection committee releases its top 16 seeds in a CBS All-Access televised show Saturday, it'll be wrong if Baylor isn't one of the No. 1 seeds. The resume is impossible to ignore.
Baylor is No. 4 in the CBS Sports Top 25 (and one).
The complete Top 25 (and one) is below.
