Manu Lecomte's wrap on his injured left thumb will come off eventually, assuming it heals.
Baylor coach Scott Drew chuckled while wondering whether that was a good thing.
“Maybe we need to wrap his hand all the time,” Drew said after Lecomte scored 22 points in his return after missing a game, helping the 21st-ranked Bears to a 99-68 victory over winless Texas Southern on Thursday night. “He was really good tonight.”
With the wrap on his non-shooting thumb, the Bears point guard was 7 of 11 from the field, made all five free throws and had a game-high six assists in the 46th consecutive home win over an unranked nonconference opponent for the Bears (8-2).
