Baylor Bears Basketball History


The Baylor Bears’ inaugural season came in 1907 under coach Luther Burleson. From 1907-1941, the Bears had three coaches. Ralph Glaze was at the helm from 1911-1914 and Ralph Wolf from 1927-1941.

In Wolf’s first year, the team went through a tragic event. Ten students and players were killed after the team bus was hit by a train. Wolf finished his career with a 277-148 overall record. The Bears won one Southwest Conference Championship under Wolf in 1932.

Bill Henderson took over in 1941. He coached the Bears for 18 seasons. The Bears won four conference championships and made three tournament appearances. His first two seasons were underwhelming, as the Bears finished with a 17-23 overall record and a 9-15 conference record. In 1945, the Bears finished with a 25-5 record and made the tournament. In 1947, they made the championship but fell to Kentucky. They returned to the tournament in the 1949-1950 season. They finished fourth. From 1950-1960, the Bears finished with just two winning seasons. Henderson finished his career with a 201–233 overall record.

Bill Menefee took over after Henderson. Menefee would be the last coach for over half to leave Baylor with a record over .500. The Bears weren’t very competitive under Menefee. They didn’t win a single conference championship or make an appearance in the tournament. He finished with a 149-144 overall record.

Guard Vinnie Johnson

The Bears had just 10 winning seasons over the next 30 seasons. On a brighter note, the Bears had a handful of good players that balled out and played at the next level. Guard Vinnie Johnson played for the Bears from 1977-1979. He averaged 24 points, 6.1 assists and 5.3 rebounds per game. He was drafted in the first round of the 1979 NBA Draft by the Seattle SuperSonics.

Guard Terry Teagle played for the Bears from 1978-1982. He averaged nearly 20 points per game for his career. He is currently the second all-time leading scorer in program history, with 2,189 points.

In 2003, the Bears were in more turmoil than ever. Coach Dave Bliss was accused of paying four players. To make matters worse, Bliss made negative comments about Patrick Dennehy. Dennehy was a player at Baylor that was murdered by an ex Baylor player. The school first took action by capping their scholarships to seven for two seasons and banned themselves from postseason play. The NCAA also placed more recruiting bans on the Bears.

Scott Drew became coach in 2003 and is still currently the coach. The sanctions made it difficult for the Bears to have any type of success. However, Drew was good at his job and had the Bears back over .500 in the 2007-2008 season.

Return to the NCAA Tournament

In 2008, the Bears finally made their return to the NCAA tournament. During the 2009-2010 season, the Bears made it to the Elite Eight. The 2011-2012 season was monumental, as the Bears finished with 30 wins. It was the first and only time the Bears finished with 30 wins. During the season, they were ranked as high as third. Additionally, they returned to the Elite Eight.

Since the 2011-2012 season, the Bears have made the tournament eight times. They’ve made it to the Sweet Sixteen five times, the Elite Eight once, the Final Four once, and the Championship once.

The 2019-2020 season looked promising for the Bears. They dominated and finished with a 26-4 record and a 15-3 conference record. Unfortunately, the postseason was canceled due to Covid-19.

The very next season, the Bears finally broke through. They finished with a 28-2 overall record and a 13-1 conference record. It was their first Big 12 Championship under Drew. They were one of the best build teams and played hard on both ends. They made their first NCAA Championship under coach Drew, where they beat Gonzaga. It was their first tournament championship in program history.
