Halftime Update: Baylor 40, Creighton 20

The Bluejays are staring at an uphill battle after a disastrous performance in the 1st Half against the Baylor Bears.

When it rains, it pours.

That's the sentiment in San Antonio after the Creighton Bluejays' 1st Half performance against the Big XII's Baylor Bears. In the Round of 32, with a trip to Anaheim on the line, the BIG EAST regular season and conference tournament runner up is facing a significant deficit.

Behind a terrific shooting performance, Baylor has built a 40-20 lead over Creighton after 20 minutes of action inside the AT&T Center.

It has been an absolute matchup nightmare for Creighton. The bigs that Baylor boasts have built up big, big problems for a team that significantly lacks size and ability in the paint. Even though Creighton possesses one of the nation's top offenses and even while Baylor is employing a zone defense, the Jays simply could n ot get anything going on the offensive end after one half of play.

National Player of the Year candidate Creighton finished the first half with just three points, while Austin Chatman and Grant Gibbs lead the way with seven and six points respectively.

Meanwhile, the Bears are doing exactly what Creighton did to become one of the best offenses int he country: shot lights out from the field. The Bears are converting on 65.0 percent of field goal attempts (20) and shooting 77.8 percent on nine attempts from downtown.

Kenny Chery leads with nine points after one half of play, but all in all, the entire Baylor offense has been getting it going from just about everywhere.
