Rico Gathers: Dominant rebounder. Low-post brute.
Going into Tuesday night’s game against Kansas, Gathers had never hit a 3-pointer for Baylor. That changed in entertaining fashion as the skilled big man hauled in a full-court baseball pass and sunk a turnaround jumper with ease.
Gathers’ bucket gave the Bears the lead at halftime over the Jayhawks in what could turn out to be a very important game in the Big 12 standings.
