Bailey played four years of college basketball at UCLA, being part of the Bruins squad that won the 1995 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament. In the championship game against Arkansas, Bailey scored 26 points and had nine rebounds as a freshman. All of the team's starting lineup - himself, Ed O'Bannon, Tyus Edney, George Zidek and Charles O'Bannon- went on to play in both the National Basketball Association and overseas. Bailey was a first team All-Pacific-10 Conference selection in 1996, 1997, and 1998. He was voted co-Most Valuable Player of the Bruins in 1996 and 1998.
Bailey was selected by the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round (45th overall) of the 1998 NBA Draft, and played for two seasons with the Phoenix Suns, averaging 3.3 points per game in 73 regular season games.
After his NBA career, and following a brief spell in the ABA, he moved on to Europe, successively representing Fillattice Imola (Italy), Panionios BC, Aris Thessaloniki and AEK Athens (Greece), Telindus Oostende (Belgium), Köln 99ers (Germany) and Ricoh Manresa (Spain). Toby finished out his career playing for EnBW Ludwigsburg in Ludwigsburg, Germany before retiring in 2013.
