I Slept On It: Baylor Tops Oklahoma State After OT; UNC Trumps FSU

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Monday's light schedule featured some drama in Waco. Plus, the group of conference unbeatens is one smaller this morning.

"I Slept On It" is Blogging the Bracket's nearly daily roundup of the previous night's college basketball action, with a bracketology focus.

ACC

At one time in Florida State's (15-11, 6-8) home game against North Carolina (18-7, 8-4) -- one the Seminoles desperately needed to win -- by a 21-6 count. It didn't last. Roy Williams earned his 300th win at the helm in Chapel Hill, as the Tar Heels prevailed 81-75 despite James Michael McAdoo fouling out with no points next to his name. Kennedy Meeks and Marcus Paige picked up the slack, combining for 43. FSU has only won twice in its last eight games and is fairly far down the bubble pecking order at this point.

Big 12

Baylor (17-9, 5-8) handed Oklahoma State (16-10, 4-9) its seventh consecutive loss on Monday night, though the Bears needed overtime to grab a 70-64 victory.

No, scratch that. They didn't need overtime to do it, but thanks to some typical lousy (I know, redundant) Baylor end-of-game execution, as SB Nation's Rodger Sherman illustrated in this post, we got five extra minutes anyway.

That's two overtime wins on the trot for Scott Drew's team, which is now 3-0 on the year when playing extra. Marcus Smart comes back for Oklahoma State on Saturday against Texas Tech, oddly enough. However, it may just be too late for the Cowboys. They'll be out of today's bracket, while the Bears, who if you recall have some quality wins to their name (Kentucky, Colorado, Kansas State, two against Oklahoma State) will be in the First Four.

Elsewhere

Delaware (19-8, 11-1 CAA) is no longer perfect in league play, as the Blue Hens fell at Towson (18-9, 9-3), which looks to be in the driver's seat for the No. 2 seed in the CAA Tournament. Jerrelle Benimon scored 25 and grabbed 18 boards for the Tigers in the win.
