Friday sports update, 3/11

The Dallas Cowboys have signed defensive end Cedric Thornton away from the Philadelphia Eagles. Thornton’s arrival means Nick Hayden could be moved to a backup role if not outright released. Cornerback Josh Thomas also signed; Thomas was a former late round pick of the Cowboys. 

In Big 12 basketball action, No. 22 Baylor beat No. 23 Texas 75-61 in the conference tournament. Taurean Prince had 24 points and 13 rebounds. Texas’ star guard Isiah Taylor was largely ineffective, scoring only eight points in the second half.  Texas will have to wait for the NCAA Tourney for it’s next opportunity to play, Baylor gets Kansas in the Big 12 tournament semifinals tonight.
