The Baylor Bears unveiled photos of the national championship rings that were handed out during Friday’s celebration at the Ferrell Center.
The rings were handed out to players and coaches that were part of last season’s national championship run, which culminated with Baylor’s win over Gonzaga in Indianapolis.
Photos of the ring from several angles were posted to social media.
The top of the ring features the team’s green-and-gold scheme, along with the school’s primary athletic logo on top of a basketball, with the gold used to show the seams of the ball. The word ‘National’ appears across the top of the ring, while the word ‘Champions’ appears across the bottom of the ring.
On one side there’s ‘Baylor’ and ‘2021,’ along with the final score of the game and the Final Four logo.
The underside of the ring features the team’s slogan, ‘J.O.Y.’ inside of the ring are the scores of the six games that Baylor won in the NCAA Tournament, along with the BU logo to note its scores and the logos of the teams it defeated as well.
The Bears started the season with an 87-60 win over Incarnate Word.
Of the five Bears in double figures, only two were holdovers from last year’s team. Forward Matthew Mayer had a team-high 14 points, while guard L.J. Cryer scored 13 points. True freshmen Kendall Brown (13 points) and Jeremy Sochan (10 points) had solid games, while transfer guard James Akinjo had 10 points and six assists.
The Bears are in action again on Monday against Nicholls State.
