When Glenn Moore and the Baylor softball team made the 6,000-mile trek to Obuasi, Ghana in Western Africa over the Christmas break, it was with one thing in mind. They wanted to show Jesus’ love in a poverty-stricken land where the average wages for a day’s work is $1.

While the 33 NBA scouts at the Ferrell Center Sunday night were probably watching Vanderbilt's three 7-footers and Baylor's senior duo of Taurean Prince and Rico Gathers, it was 5-10 guard Lester Medford that hit the biggest shot of the night. With the Bears down by one in the last minute and the shot clock winding down, Medford drained a 3-pointer from the corner with 42.4 seconds left that lifted 25th-ranked Baylor to a scintillating 69-67 win over the No. 13/16 Commodores in the first home non-conference game in program history matching ranked teams.

But, Baylor's first-year volleyball head coach is not about to beat himself up about all the "what if" possibilities for a 17-13 team that flirted with its first NCAA Tournament bid in four years.
