Jalen Bridges Shines in Start With Baylor

Morgantown, West Virginia – The Baylor Bears men’s basketball team is currently representing the United States in the GLOBAL JAM, a series of exhibition games against foreign countries.

The Bears have been short-handed with several players unable to play, but former West Virginia forward and Fairmont, West Virginia native Jalen Bridges has shined in his first two starts with Baylor.

In the team’s 69-67 loss to Canada yesterday, Bridges finished with 13 points and 7 rebounds and appeared to be far more aggressive offensively than he was during his time with the Mountaineers.

The Bears will face Brazil at 1 p.m. Thursday and the game will be televised on ESPN+.
