The nationally-ranked Baylor basketball team played a tiny NAIA school called Huston-Tillotson on Wednesday night. Why would a top Division I team schedule a low-level opponent like that after conference play had already begun? Because they were supposed to film a movie. 

Baylor's sports information director explained the situation in an email to Yahoo's Jeff Eisenberg:

Wisconsin recruiting letter messes up coach's résumé​

Huston-Tillotson actually put up a good fight and trailed by only one at the half. Not bad for a school with 926 students. But Baylor pulled away in the second half, thanks in part to an astonishing 28 rebounds by Rico Geathers. That would have made for a pretty good movie.
