Brady Heslip, welcome to your legendary March Madness moment. The Baylor Bears' shooting guard, who has been the team's three-point sniper all season long, scored 27 points in a three-point shooting barrage for the ages. He shot 9-12 from long range — unabashed gunning that, along with some stellar defense, led the third-seeded Bears to an 80-63 victory over the upset-minded Colorado Buffaloes, the 11th seed.
Pierre Jackson, the Bears' firebrand point guard, fed Heslip on many of those, and he finished with what Baylor fans will recognize as a classic Jackson line — 15 points, 10 assists, six steals — as his incredible handle and vision toasted the Buffaloes' backcourt.
The Buffs' star all year has been Andre Roberson, who was effective Saturday, going for 13 points, eight rebounds and four steals, but he took just five shots from the field as the Baylor defense held him in check. The Bears will go on to face the winner of Lehigh and Xavier in the Sweet 16.
