Baylor's losing streak is its longest since a six-game slide during the 2008-09 season, but coach Scott Drew remains optimistic with his sights squarely set on the big picture."At the end of day, we like this team, we're not going to give up, we're going to keep fighting," Drew told reporters after Saturday's 74-60 loss to Texas. "Last year, we were at this time 5-1 (in the Big 12). We thought everything was great and finished 9-9. ... We'd rather finish well than start well, so we'll see what we can do."
