The game began at 11 a.m. — no other college basketball game started earlier on the first day of the season — and was played before a crowd filled mostly with elementary school students.

"Won't guarantee we'll always shoot 55%, but when you do and you have 25 assists and you defend and rebound like we did today, obviously not a lot to be upset with," Drew said.

Teague, a transfer from UNC Asheville who had to sit out last season, had four 3-pointers.

"I was pretty anxious going into the game. I had a little bit of trouble sleeping last night," Teague said. "But it felt great to go out there and join the team, join my brothers and play against a different team."

"But I think the thing that we try to do in these games is try to find the good minutes."

Sixers big man got into a tussle with Minnesota Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns on Wednesday, and for their efforts both will be suspended for two games. In commentsIn comments on social media afterward, Embiid credited Butler for giving him the gumption needed to take on a challenger like Towns. Of course, Butler understands his reputation and he even said that he expected to get pulled into this whole mess when he saw the tussle first go down.

With Butler defeating top-ranked Villanova on Wednesday and Baylor beating Iowa State and Oklahoma State this week, the Bears will likely ascend to the top of the national polls for the As the final seconds ticked off in Baylor ' s win over Oklahoma State, the sellout home crowd chanted "No. 1."

Baylor missed its final seven shots and did not score in the final 5:22. The Lady Bears didn't score their first points of the second half until Alexis Prince hit Oklahoma State brought an eight-game winning streak into Saturday' s game against Baylor . The Cowgirls only loss was a 79-77 decision to No. 11

CLARK'S RETURN

Baylor's preseason All-Big 12 forward, Tristan Clark, had three points and four rebounds in his return after missing the second half of last season with a knee injury. Clark had two early fouls and played only five minutes in a scoreless first half. He finished 1-of-3 shooting in 16 minutes overall.

"We've seen in practice, he's had moments where he was the Tristan of old and then he's had moments where he's still getting the rust off," Drew said. "It's a long process for him. He will keep getting better and better with time."

QUICK 10

Bandoo had 10 points in span of 1:40 in the first half. He drove for a reverse layup that made it 11-0 and drove for a dunk 15 seconds later. His consecutive 3-pointers, sandwiching the first basket by UCA, put the home Bears up 22-2.

BIG PICTURE

Central Arkansas: The Bears from the Southland Conference got down so much so quick that it took time for them to settle in and just play. They do have four returning starters.

Baylor: A good start for Baylor, which had two Division I transfers in its starting lineup that had to sit out last season: point guard Mitchell (Auburn) and Teague. Clark, who was the nation's top field goal shooter in the 14 games he played last season, will have plenty of time to get back into a groove before conference play starts.

UP NEXT

Central Arkansas returns home to Conway, Arkansas, to play crosstown rival Hendrix College on Thursday night. Their campuses are about 2½ miles apart.

Baylor took off after the game to head to Alaska, where the Bears will play Washington at a military base Friday night.
