  • 10 in-season tournament championships for Baylor
  • 2007 The Friars last in-season tournament was last season in the Puerto Rico Tip-off.  Providence won the first two games but last in the championship game to Miami.  Geoff McDermott was tournament MVP even though PC lost.
  • 2007 Baylor’s last in-season tournament was last year in the Paradise Jam crown in the U.S. Virgin Islands, which they won.
