San Antonio, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Baylor's midseason swoon is a distant memory. The white-hot Bears will enter the Sweet 16 brimming with confidence following another lights-out performance.
Doug McDermott, meanwhile, saw his storied NCAA career come to an abrupt end following another bitter third-round exit.
Brady Heslip nailed five of the Bears' 11 3-pointers and Baylor routed Creighton 85-55 on Sunday in the third round of the NCAA Tournament.
The sixth-seeded Bears, who were 11-of-18 from beyond the arc, began the year 12-1 and rose as high as No. 7 in the rankings before falling apart with a 2-8 start in conference play.
They turned the season around by winning 10-of-11 before losing to Iowa State in the Big 12 title game.
A teary-eyed McDermott, who finished with 15 points on 7-of-14 shooting, came out with 2:31 left to a standing ovation from the fans in attendance.
