Pierre Jackson has done his best to lead the Baylor team to a not so great 9-9 Big 12 record his hard work has paid off leading the Bears to their first ever NIT Championship title.

 

Per AP

NEW YORK (AP) — Pierre Jackson had his fourth straight double-double with 17 points and 10 assists to lead Baylor to the first National Invitation Tournament title in school history with a 74-54 win over Iowa on Thursday night.
