Baylor coach Kim Mulkey has been diagnosed with Bell’s palsy, a form of facial paralysis she says won’t change her approach going into the NCAA Final Four.
Baylor was cruising, the Lady Bears’ reserves were waiting to check in and there seemed to be little excitement.
Buddy Jones, the board chairman of the Baylor University regents, is in constant awe of all the great things his school is experiencing these days.
The Lady Bears haven’t lost since falling in the quarterfinals of last year’s tournament. They routed UC Santa Barbara on Sunday.
Top-ranked Baylor proved Saturday it has more than just Brittney Griner.
Brittney Griner had a career-high 45 points, 10 rebounds and seven blocked shots, leading No. 1 Baylor to an 86-65 rout of Kansas State on Friday in the Big 12 tournament semifinals.
Griner is having another All-America season. But the 6-foot-8 junior isn’t the only reason the Lady Bears (30-0) can wrap up their first undefeated regular season Saturday against Iowa State.
Country music star Trace Adkins’ latest performance was for his college crush. Adkins sang the national anthem before the top-ranked Baylor women played Texas A&M on Saturday. The Lady Bears are coached by Kim Mulkey, who was a pigtailed point guard for national champion Louisiana Tech when Adkins was a freshman walk-on football player there.
The Lady Bears (24-0) are the only remaining undefeated men’s or women’s team in major college basketball. They have won a school-record 36 consecutive home games.
Country singing star Trace Adkins says he’s had a crush on Baylor women’s basketball coach Kim Mulkey ever since they both attended Louisiana Tech.
Mulkey expressed displeasure after her top-seeded team was put in the same bracket with Texas A&M, a Big 12 foe it had faced three times already last season.
Baylor can clinch the Big 12 regular season title with a win Wednesday and is set to host first- and second-round NCAA tournament games.
