WACO, Texas -- Its difficult to imagine that there are two teams more diametrically opposed in their performance through the first month of this season than Baylor and Jackson State. Milt Schmidt Jersey .Fourth-ranked Baylor has ripped through an ambitious schedule, posting wins over then-No. 24 Michigan State and a trio of top-10 victories over Oregon, Louisville and Xavier.When the Bears (9-0) werent playing Top 25 opponents, they have demolished all comers. Baylor has won its games against non-ranked foes, including Florida Gulf Coast, Virginia Commonwealth and Sam Houston State, by an average of 19.2 points per game.Baylor has been able to blend its newcomers -- point guard Manu Lecomte, forward Jo Lual-Acuil and, most recently, forward Nuni Omot, who became eligible this week -- with an able cast of veterans.The Bears used nine players for 10 minutes or more in their win over Southern on Wednesday.With more players and more different weapons or players you can put in to give the team a spark, the better options for the team, Baylor coach Scott Drew said. The only way that becomes a hindrance is if people start worrying about themselves more than the team. But weve been blessed with good kids, great leadership and believing that the team comes first.On the other end of the spectrum, Jackson State (3-7) had only two bench players play significant minutes and got no bench points in a loss to NAIA Blue Mountain College on Thursday.Jackson State had won two straight before its Thursday loss. Still, the noteworthy mark of the Tigers season so far has been a six-game losing streak in November.Coach Wayne Brent is trying to get his charges to power through a difficult part of the season.You want to sub, but you dont have a sub, Brent said. You want guys to play a little harder, but theyre playing as hard as they can play. Theyre just mentally drained. Weve got to get through it because weve got to get on the bus and go to Baylor.With a quick turnaround from a home game in Jackson, Miss., to Saturdays game at Fort Hood, Texas, the Tigers wont be able to practice much, but have to prepare themselves in other ways.The road doesnt get any easier, Brent said. Well try to mentally get some guys ready. Its a long season and anything can happen, youve just got to get guys ready to play.Although it doesnt promise to be a compelling contest on the court, with the Bears entering as an overwhelming favorite, theres at least the uplifting prospect of entertaining soldiers at Fort Hood.This is the second straight season in which Baylor has played a home game at Fort Hood, located about 60 miles from Baylors campus.I know a lot of times, soldiers come up and families will come up to some games here (in Waco), Drew said. But us having a chance to play down there, I think thats something our players really appreciate that opportunity to say thank you.

After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual.

Afobe, who moved to Bournemouth from Wolves for £10m in January, has an England youth career stretching back 11 years, having captained the Under-12s, won the Victory Shield with the U16s, while also turning out for the U17s, U19s and U21s.But he revealed the Democratic Republic of the Congo national team are interested in selecting the 23-year-old, and that he would sit down with his parents and agent to consider it. Afobe has represented England at youth level for 11 years He told Sky Sports: Well see in the next international break what will happen, but I know they are interested in me, and its something my family, my agent and myself are going to have to sit down and talk about.Of course [its a big decision to make] because you know once youve played the international game that isnt a friendly, thats you done, you get to choose once and you have to live with it.But hopefully I will choose well with my family and I wont regret anything.Affobe has three goals in his six appearances for the Cherries so far this season, having hit 23 in two seasons with Wolves.

The 23-year-old wants to be mentioned in the same breath as the likes of Harry Kane But the striker says his ultimate ambition is to be mentioned in the same breath as the likes of Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane, and wants to be remembered as a legendary Premier League hit man.Asked who the best striker in the Premier League was at present, Afobe said: Aguero. Everyone knows hes a world-class centre forward. Theres loads of strikers, even the young ones like Harry Kane, and Romelu Lukaku at Everton.Theyve been doing really well and have made a name for themselves, but its just about being really consistent.Its great to see strikers scoring goals week in, week out, and hopefully one day I can be one of them, someone who can say: He scores goals for fun in the Premier League.
