"Baylor forward NaLyssa Smith earned her second Big 12 Women's Basketball Player of the Week award this season after guiding the Lady Bears to a win over top-ranked Connecticut, while Texas Tech's Alexis Tucker collected her first Freshman of the Week honor after leading the Lady Raiders to their first league win of the season.

Smith showed out with a 20-point performance at UConn adding 12 rebounds and shooting 9-of-13 from the field. Her performance helped the Lady Bears take down the No. 1 team in the nation for the second-straight season. Smith followed with career highs in both points (30) and rebounds (15) in a conference win over Oklahoma State. She shot 12-for-20 from the floor and eight of her 15 boards were on the offensive end.

Tucker boasted 14 points and 6.5 rebounds over two games last week. She was instrumental in the Lady Raiders earning their first win at TCU in seven seasons, scoring 12 points on 71.4 percent shooting (5-of-7) along with nine rebounds in 25 minutes. Against K-State, the guard scored 16 points on 60 percent shooting (6-of-10) along with four rebounds and two assists."

FORMER PLAYER
Jhasmin Player

"Fifth-year Kansas head coach Brandon Schneider shook up his staff going into this year hiring assistant coach Jhasmin Player from Loyola Marymount. Player was a four-year letter winner and senior captain at Baylor (2005-09) who had also coached at Maine.

"I'm not surprised in the least," Mulkey said of Player becoming a coach. "She would be in the locker room, and you would be motivating the team, and (Jhasmin) would be the first one out the door. She couldn't want to get on the floor, she was so pumped up. . . . She will be an excellent head coach someday. I stay in touch with Jhasmin, and I'm pulling for her, but not (Wednesday) night. I'll hug her before the game, I'll hug her after the game, but for that two-hour period, we're enemies."

WVU is obviously not as good as we thought. I would congratulate OU but I despise them !

OU head coach Sherri Coale

On West Virginia's struggles and Oklahoma's success
"Well, I didn't feel like we shot that great, but we did have some great rolls. You cannot argue with that. When we hit one of (Oklahoma guard) Taylor's (Robertson) at the end of the third quarter was crazy. That's when you're like, 'Eh', sometimes it just works like that. We've been on the opposite end of that too.

No, I can't explain it to answer your question. Sometimes, what is the saying? 'Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug.' We've been there."

Hi Wichitabear, I agree! The posters feel more like a painting.
Did you see the pre-game poster for the Jan 15 Baylor game?

Carey after game on Baylor better this year than last .....

"These girls, they're all over the place. You don't know where they're going to be!"

That's about as high a compliment from a great opposing coach as it gets imo. LOL

KEEP GETTING BETTER!

If they don't compare themselves to others and just concentrate on getting to be the best they can be the sky is limit on this team

2nd could be nearly as, or even good as first team if they get to play as much throughout conference

Very exciting team to watch develop

"Making the decision to move the women's college basketball semifinals to ESPN and make the first and second round available nationally across our networks was a direct result of the ever-growing popularity of women's college basketball," said Carol Stiff, ESPN vice president of programming and acquisitions. "Last year alone, we saw an 8% ratings increase for the Women's Final Four. These changes will only further celebrate a great sport with a tremendous fan base."

"It's a great investment by ESPN for the game of women's basketball to showcase every first- and second-round game on a full national platform across its networks," said Diane Turnham, chair of the NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Committee and senior associate athletic director at Middle Tennessee State University. "This move will be enjoyed by women's basketball fans across the country as we work to grow the game while celebrating what will be an outstanding 2020 championship."
