Baylor vs. Hardin-Simmons Boys

Baylor's Rico Gathers (2) slam dunks at Ft Hood.

Spc. Donald Wallenta had never seen a Baylor men’s basketball game in person before Dec. 16.

Yet for Wallenta, the Bears’ 104-59 victory against Hardin Simmons at Abrams Physical Fitness Center was bigger than prime seats to watch the No. 16 team in the nation with his wife, Marion, and her parents Ken and Gale Pyle.
