AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Baylor has won a lot of games on Texas' home court and even clinched a league title there. Monday night looked like the No. 1 Lady Bears were rolling to another easy one until they had to fight for it all the way to the end.
WACO, Texas (AP) — Kalani Brown and Moon Ursin set the tone early for Baylor in its first home game in nearly six years as the No. 1 team. The five freshmen for the Lady Bears showed late how they are improving for coach Kim Mulkey.
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Baylor's stay at the top nearly was very short.
Lauren Cox had 16 points and 13 rebounds, and No. 1 Baylor rallied to beat Oklahoma State 66-58 on Wednesday night.
Juicy Landrum scored 15 points while Kalani Brown added 11 points and 12 rebounds for Baylor (18-1, 8-0 Big 12), which moved to No. 1 this week after Notre Dame's loss to North Carolina.
WACO, Texas (AP) — Chloe Jackson took an unusual path to being the starting point guard for top-ranked Baylor and coach Kim Mulkey.
Jackson was a graduate transfer last summer after two seasons as a shooting guard at LSU. She was a standout soccer player who also loved basketball in high school, and if not for a rare earthquake affecting her home state of Maryland then, she might now be kicking balls somewhere instead running the floor for the nation's top women's basketball team.
NEW YORK (AP) — Kim Mulkey and Baylor returned to No. 1 in The Associated Press women's college basketball poll on Monday for the first time nearly six years.
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Her team won and probably will be ranked No. 1 this week, but Baylor coach Kim Mulkey seemed more pessimist than optimist after yet another Big 12 Conference road win.
Juicy Landrum scored 21 points, Kalani Brown added 20 and No. 2 Baylor extended its Big 12 winning streak to 30 games, rolling past Oklahoma 74-53 on Sunday.
WACO, Texas (AP) — Kalani Brown turned the ball over once and missed a couple easy shots in the first few minutes Sunday.
That earned Baylor's senior All-America center a seat on coach Kim Mulkey's bench. But when Brown returned to the game less than a minute later, she did so with a different mentality, started making shots and the Lady Bears fed off that.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Juicy Landrum and the No. 4 Baylor Lady Bears are settling in coming off the hype of ending then-No. 1 UConn's 126-game regular-season winning streak.
Now coach Kim Mulkey thinks her team might even get a little rest.
WACO, Texas (AP) — Baylor showed a bit of fatigue when playing its third game in a seven-day stretch that coach Kim Mulkey described as an emotional and physical roller-coaster.
The fourth-ranked Lady Bears still turned up the defensive pressure in time to win their Big 12 home opener and wrap up a span that began with a win over then-No. 1 UConn.
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — No. 8 Baylor is back in Big 12 play, and a familiar role after taking down top-ranked UConn.
"We're the UConn in the Big 12. We know that we have a target on our back, we've won eight straight years," coach Kim Mulkey said. "Any off night for us is a win for somebody else."
Queen Egbo had 19 points and 10 rebounds, and the Lady Bears followed their victory over UConn with a 73-56 win against Texas Tech in their Big 12 opener on Sunday.
NEW YORK (AP) — Baylor fell out of the top five for the first time in nearly a year after losing at Stanford.
The Lady Bears dropped from third to sixth in The Associated Press women's basketball poll on Monday after losing 68-63 on Saturday to the then-No. 11 Cardinal. Stanford moved up to eighth.
Kim Mulkey's team last was ranked outside the top five on Jan. 1, 2018, when Baylor was No. 6.
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Baylor coach Kim Mulkey knows her team can pound the ball inside. Once the No. 4 Lady Bears started hitting 3-pointers Sunday night, she knew No. 18 South Carolina wasn't going to be much trouble.
Baylor (7-0) made seven of its first 10 shots to jump out to a 16-3 lead. The Lady Bears scored 32 points in the first quarter — tied for the most ever against the Gamecocks (4-4).
LAS VEGAS (AP) — DiDi Richards sprung off her chair and performed a quick pirouette on the Baylor bench just two minutes into the third quarter Saturday night.
Teammate Juicy Landrum's long 3-pointer, which gave the Lady Bears their biggest lead of the game, had the sophomore guard feeling some type of way.
No. 4 Baylor dominated all facets of the game and got contributions from its entire roster en route to a 67-46 victory over Georgetown in the South Point Thanksgiving Shootout.
WACO, Texas (AP) — Fourth-ranked Baylor was just fine without its All-America post player against overmatched Southern University.
Honesty Scott-Grayson scored 15 points on 6-of-7 shooting to lead four freshmen and seven Lady Bears overall in double figures as they got past Southern University 94-49 on Thursday night, a day after 6-foot-7 post Kalani Brown sprained her ankle in practice.
"She rolled it on somebody's foot. No need to play her tonight," coach Kim Mulkey said.
WACO, Texas (AP) — The fourth-ranked Baylor women have signed guard Jordyn Oliver to a national letter of intent
Oliver, a five-star recruit from Prosper, Texas, was the lone signee for the Lady Bears on Wednesday.
Oliver averaged 20.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 3.1 steals as a junior last season while leading Prosper High to a 31-4 record. Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said Oliver had been committed to the Lady Bears since her sophomore season.
WACO, Texas (AP) — Fourth-ranked Baylor has all the makings of another standout team in coach Kim Mulkey's 19th season, and the uncertainty at point guard may already be settled.
The Lady Bears have one of the best post combos in the nation with 6-foot-7 All-American Kalani Brown and 6-4 Lauren Cox, plenty of good shooters, some standout freshmen and graduate transfer Chloe Jackson at the point.
WACO, Texas (AP) — Baylor has dismissed sophomore point guard Alexis Morris from the team for an unspecified violation of team rules.
Coach Kim Mulkey released a statement Tuesday that said Morris was no longer on the team, and that the move was effective immediately. The school didn't offer any details.
WACO, Texas (AP) — Baylor forward Natalie Chou has decided to transfer and has been granted her release from the school after two seasons with the Big 12 champion Lady Bears.
Coach Kim Mulkey announced the move Monday.
Chou started 21 of her 64 games with Baylor, though she missed seven games this year because of a broken bone in her non-shooting left wrist. The 6-foot-4 Chou averaged 5.5 points and 1.9 assists per game in her career.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Notre Dame's Muffet McGraw is The Associated Press women's college basketball Coach of the Year for the fourth time.
This might be McGraw's best coaching job. She lost four players over the course of the season to ACL injuries and still managed to go 32-3.
She was presented the award Thursday after receiving 10 of the votes from a 32-member national media panel.
WACO, Texas (AP) — Baylor coach Kim Mulkey wouldn't say exactly how or what she said to Lauren Cox in the locker room at the end of the 6-foot-4 post player's freshman season a year ago.
"But I challenged her right in her face, and I think she accepted the challenge," Mulkey said. "She's in the best shape of her life. Her diabetes is under control. ... When you do all the things you're supposed to, and you feel good, you do good."
