All students who cheer on the Baylor Bears and Lady Bears basketball teams are considered members of the Bear Pit, the official student saction for basketball! Working in unison with the Spirit Squads and Pep Band, the Bear Pit creates a decisive home-court advantage for both teams while offering an atmosphere of excitement for players and fans to enjoy. Bear Pit seating is located directly behind the basket in sections 118, 119, and 120.
Students wear anything Baylor green and gold to the games, but it is best to wear the official Bear Pit student section t-shirt when you’re cheering for the Bears. The Ferrell Center Doors open 60 minutes before tip-off and students swipe their Baylor ID card at the Student Entrance to get front row seats to the action. Members of the Bear Pit stand throughout the game to lead chants, cheers, and influence the atmosphere for the full 40 minutes, and may get high-fives and fist bumps from the players following the game.
