Baylor Bears

Baylor Bears (variously Baylor or BU) refers to the sports teams of Baylor University. Baylor's men's sports teams are nicknamed the Bears, and some women's teams are nicknamed the Lady Bears. Student athletes participate in the NCAA's Division I, and Baylor is one of only two private schools in the Big 12 Conference. Prior to joining the Big 12, Baylor was a member of the Southwest Conference from the conference's charter in 1914 until its dissolution in 1996.

Baylor won its first team NCAA title in 2004 as the men's tennis team defeated UCLA in the championship game. They narrowly lost to UCLA in the 2005 national championship match. The Lady Bears won the school's other two championships in women's basketball, in 2005 and 2012. During the 2011-2012 season, Baylor set an NCAA record for most combined wins in the four major collegiate sports: baseball, men's and women's basketball, and football.

The mascots of Baylor University are two black bears named Joy and Lady.

Famous quotes containing the word bears:

    The real security of Christianity is to be found in its benevolent morality, in its exquisite adaptation to the human heart, in the facility with which its scheme accommodates itself to the capacity of every human intellect, in the consolation which it bears to the house of mourning, in the light with which it brightens the great mystery of the grave.
    Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800–1859)
