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.
Baylor (34-1), in the NCAA round of 16 for the fourth year in a row, plays Louisville (26-8) on Sunday night in Oklahoma City.
Brittney Griner and top-ranked Baylor could have a few repeats while trying to repeat as national championship.
The Big 12 women’s tournament could be like the regular season: an exercise to determine who finishes second to Baylor.

Baylor coach Kim Mulkey struggles at times because her top-ranked Lady Bears are showing they can be better even without being perfect again.
Baylor coach Kim Mulkey had a simple reason for keeping Brittney Griner, the reigning player of the year, on the floor in the waning minutes of a blowout win over Kansas.
Brittney Griner scored 24 points — including a one-handed slam about six minutes in — and added 12 rebounds to lead the No. 2 Lady Bears to a 74-35 win over Big 12 newcomer TCU on Wednesday night in the conference opener for both teams.
With her mom looking on, Brittney Griner scored a season-high 35 points in her first college game in her hometown, and Baylor cruised to an 89-49 victory against Rice.
Makenzie Robertson scored a career-high 23 points as Baylor routed Hawaii 77-42 to close a disappointing tournament for the Lady Bears in Honolulu despite two dominant wins.
Brittney Griner and Baylor are picking up right where they finished last season — at No. 1. The Lady Bears are ranked at the top of the preseason women’s basketball poll by The Associated Press for the second straight year.
Defending national champion Baylor, with All-America center Brittney Griner returning from a 40-0 season, is the overwhelming pick to win the Big 12 again.
