It slid under the radar in part because he had failed to log any minutes playing for Boston College as a freshman, but Canadian guard Brady Heslip is making his mark since joining the Baylor lineup this season. Despite standing at just 6'2" and not overly athletic (at least not compared to the other Bears on the roster), Heslip is just what coach Scott Drew needs- a knockdown perimeter shooter that can make defenses pay with all of their size inside; after all, Drew does boast 6'11" Perry Jones, 6'11" J'mison Morgan, 6'10" Anthony Jones, 6'9" Quincy Miller and 6'7" Quincy Miller in his rotation.
Heslip has hit 30 3s so far this season, double what the next Bears play has knocked down and he has down so on .455 percent accuracy from behind the arc. In fact, he has taken just nine shots from inside the arc, compared to his 66 behind it.
With Heslip's firepower and the addition of Cal transfer Gary Franklin to the perimeter, these could be the two pieces critical to a March Baylor run.
