Baylor guard MaCio Teague made a list of 10 high-impact seniors compiled by NCAA.com basketball writer Andy Katz as part of the March Madness 365 podcast.
In the podcast, Katz points out that Teague is one of four Bears averaging double figures in scoring this year (14.7 points per game) and has helped propel the Bears to the No. 2 national ranking. Teague is also averaging nearly four rebounds per game.
Teague is in his second season at Baylor. In 2019-20, Teague earned All-Big 12 Second Team honors and All-Big 12 Newcomer Team honors as he scored 13.9 points per game.
Before Teague arrived at Baylor, he played at UNC-Asheville for two seasons, earning All-Big South First-Team honors both seasons, along with Big South Freshman of the Year. He sat out the 2018-19 season after transferring to Baylor.
The Bears are one of two undefeated teams in the nation, along with No. 1 Gonzaga, and the Bears figure to stay that way for a bit. Last week the Bears announced a COVID-19 pause, which forced the Bears to postponed last Saturday’s game with TCU and Wednesday’s game with Oklahoma. Then, on Monday, the program announced that it would have to postpone the following three games, including a pair of games with West Virginia next week. That means the earliest the Bears could hit the floor would be next Saturday, Feb. 20, against Oklahoma State.
The Bears now have six Big 12 games to make up due to COVID protocols.
