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.
The Lady Bears on Monday announced the additions of Prairie View coach Toyelle Wilson and Georgia Tech associate head coach Sytia Messer, starting next week.
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.
The green-and-gold confetti flew. And green-clad Baylor coach Kim Mulkey climbed the ladder to finish the Big 12 championship celebration.
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.
