MaCio Teague is returning to the Baylor Bears for his senior season. The Baylor guard made the announcement in a conversation with Watch Stadium’s Jeff Goodman.
The Baylor guard entered his name in the NBA draft in April, but ultimately decided he would go ahead with another season in Waco.
Teague came to Baylor as a transfer from UNC-Asheville and averaged 13.9 points and 4.6 rebounds last season, while hitting nearly 36% of his three-pointers.
Teague admitted that COVID-19 made the pre-draft process difficult, telling Goodman, “It was definitely a strange process. We were doing interviews at home on Zoom. We didn’t get a chance to go work out (or) fly out and meet guys at the workouts and play against people and compete. It was definitely a strange year to do anything.”
All this is great news for the Bears, who were ranked No. 1 in the country for five straight weeks last season and won a program record 23 games in a row at one point.
That apparently was also appealing for Teague, who added, “We have a pretty good team here at Baylor. We’re returning a lot of players. We have a chance to do something special next year. I feel like Baylor is a good fit.”
Baylor is now awaiting the decision of Jared Butler who led the team with 16.0 points per game.
