Baylor Lady Bears
The four-overtime classic that ended as the highest-scoring game in Division I women’s basketball history is sure to grab some additional headlines for the sport.
Odyssey Sims scored 29 points as the ninth-ranked Lady Bears beat San Jose State 113-73 on Tuesday night to stretch the nation’s best home winning streak to 64 games.
Savannah State held Baylor without a field goal during a span of more than 6 minutes in the first half. The only problem, the Lady Tigers still trailed by double digits after that stretch.
Odyssey Sims and all those talented Baylor freshmen are off to a high-scoring start without Brittney Griner.
Baylor coach Kim Mulkey is purposely keeping her 10th-ranked Lady Bears close to home in nonconference play.
The NCAA has given Baylor women’s basketball coach Kim Mulkey a one-game suspension for criticizing the officiating following her team’s loss to Louisville earlier this year.
Baylor star Brittney Griner has revealed she’s a lesbian.
Brittney Griner is an All-America for the third straight season and joins a select group.
Monique Reid hit two free throws with 2.6 seconds left to lift Louisville to a stunning 82-81 upset of top-ranked, defending national champion Baylor on Sunday night.
Baylor coach Kim Mulkey laughed at the idea. Then, after giving it a little thought, declared herself the winner of a mythical NCAA women’s tournament in which coaches played 1-on-1 to determine the winner of each round.
Brittney Griner caught the pass going toward the basket, took one more step without a dribble and finished with a one-handed slam dunk. As impressive as that play was, it was only the first of three dunks for Griner in her final home game for Baylor.
Brittney Griner had 33 points, 10 rebounds, six blocks and another dunk, and defending champion Baylor opened the NCAA tournament with an 82-40 victory against Prairie View A&M on Sunday night.
