    As the Ferrell Center prepares to host its final regular season Baylor basketball game — Dec. 22, when the men host Mississippi Valley State — a couple of posts on social media got the Baylor Family rolling sharing their favorite memories from 35 years of basketball at the Ferrell.

    Not surprisingly, a few themes came up over and over:

    There were specific memories of big wins

    And more general memories of success.

    But the No. 1 thing people remembered? The friendships, and the time spent with family.

    This isn’t the end for the Ferrell Center; it will still be home to Baylor volleyball and acrobatics & tumbling, as well as graduation ceremonies, even after basketball moves on to the new Foster Pavilion. But this definitely the end of an era — one that provided plenty of good memories for the Baylor Family.

    Sic ’em, Bears!
