Kenny Chery pivotal for Baylor

Baylor Bears

2013-14: 26-12 (9-9)
In-conference offense: 1.11 points per possession (second)
In-conference defense: 1.08 points per possession (seventh)

As has been the norm under coach Scott Drew, Baylor boasted one of the best offenses in the country last season, ranking ninth nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency, the sixth time in the past seven seasons the Bears have been in the top 15 in that category. Baylor was held below a point per possession in just five games in 2013-14.

The Bears' offense was at its best late in the season. While most offenses across the country were finding it more difficult to score during the heart of conference play, Baylor ran off a 15-game streak in February and March of scoring more than a point per possession, often posting a much higher figure than that.
