History-making Bears

Baylor University Bears nearly pulled it out! The NIT Championship at Madison Square Garden was won tonight by Penn State, 69-61. Baylor was runner up here to Kentucky in 1948. That was the great team headed by Jackie Robinson (the Texas Robinson, not the California and Dodger one). The Bears came through at the end of the season defeating Texas, Kansas, Georgetown, Va. Tech, Auburn and San Diego State and end the season with their heads held high. As the Aggies always say, "We didn't lose, just ran out of time." (Photo Waco Tribune Herald, with gratitude)
