#10 Seed: The 2009/10 Baylor Bears were one of the feel-good stories of the 2002/11 decade.  Led upfront by center Epke Udoh, Coach Scott Drew's team was a powerhouse in the paint.  Season long ballcontrol/turnover issues ultimately doomed their run, which essentially ended on a bing-bang charge call (nulling a made basket) in the final minutes of their Elite 8 loss to the highly polished champion Duke Blue Devils. The 2009/10 Bears entertained their loyal fans with the programs best run in 60 years, helping to put behind a murderous scandal which had been haunting the program for the previous seven seasons.
