The team has now won a school-record 21 games in a row and been the top-ranked team in the AP Top 25 four weeks in a row. Guards Jared Butler, MaCio Teague, Davion Mitchell and Devonte Bandoo had never all played in a game together before this season. Baylor also has Freddie Gillespie, a 6-foot-9 senior center who played two seasons at Division III Carleton College in Minnesota before transferring to Baylor.
