Get to know the name Jerryd Bayless. He's Arizona's stud freshman guard and he's not in to self-promotion one bit. No, no way. He just has his own website to get the honeys.
Bayless was huge in Arizona's 78-67 win over Texas A&M. The Wildcats erased a 20-point first-half deficit, but stormed back mightily in the second half behind the play of Bayless.
He finished with a game-high 26 points on a 10-10 free throw shooting and 7-12 shooting from the floor. Chase Budinger chipped in 19 for UofA. The Aggies, who could possibly have some road woes this season, were led by Josh Carter's 17 points.
Meanwhile, Arizona State looked more or less like a last place team, getting aced by Nebraska, 62-47. The Sun Devils, now 4-2, didn't have a player score in double figures. Nebraska had three guys in double digits, led by the 15 points of Ade Dagunduro. The Huskers also have a player named Cookie Miller. I bet that's his real name. I really do. His parents are probably Keebler elves.
As of this post, the Pac-10 leads the Big 12 5-3 in the Hardwood Series.
