Baylor is close to clinching a share of their 11th conference title in the past 21 years,
6 more titles than any other Big 12 [women's basketball] team

Arkansas coach isn't a finalist. But also - Geno is nominated every year - he deserves more of a recruiting award year after year.

My comment was not based on his eligibility, but, rather, on his performance. I did not say he could win, I said he should win, a matter of opinion expressed regardless of the facts. Read carefully.

Neighbors's teams can beat anybody on any given day, and can also lose to anybody. In 2016 he took Washington and Kelsey Plum to the FF as a 7 seed after upsetting Kentucky and Stanford in the regionals. But in 2017 with the same team more experienced, and a 3 seed, I watched them get run out of the gym in the 2nd half by MissSt in OKC.

This year he managed to beat both BU and UConn at home, but went 0-6 against the other 5 best teams in the SECSECSEC (UK, UGA, Tenn, SCar, Aggy x2).


Winner should probably be between Blair and Moore.

Don't know about that.....

First off, if they are going to nominate Geno, Walz, and Tara, Kim should be in there also. Just shows the undeserved basketball media hatred towards Baylor and CKM. Geno is seen as Luke Skywalker, Kim as Darth Vader.

I think the award should go to the coach that has orchestrated the biggest turnaround in a short time. That would mean Adia Barnes (Arizona). Has taken a PAC-12 doormat and turned them around in less than 3 years.

Guess this thread is home of the Conspiracy Theorists....

COY typically goes to the leader of the biggest overachieving team.

Baylor [to this point] is slightly underachieving their Pre-Season Poll position. The coaches on that list have teams that are currently over-achieving their Pre-Season Poll position. It isn't some "get Baylor/Mulkey scheme".

Arizona faded badly down the stretch. They were beaten badly twice by Stanford (on the scale of our dismantling of UT in Waco), and the loss to Arizona State is badbadbad (would be equal to us losing to Tech or KU this year).

Note that in addition to omitting Kim, they also excluded Dawn Staley, but I guess when you are preseason #2 and don't win your conference that's going to happen. That's why I think it will be Blair. Expectations weren't that high on Aggy, especially after Chennedy Carter left, but it was a case of addition by subtraction: get rid of the ballhog to build a more cohesive team, plus take advantage of a very favorable schedule with 6 of their 7 games against the top 6 teams in the SEC at home.

But Baylor lost three starters and half of the scoring production. Had to find the right combinations and pieces and parts. Took some time to get team going cohesively. She should get recognition for that ?

Baylor fansmight think so, others might not.

If we win the championship, this says it all! I don't expect us to this year but maybe final 4.

And wins of 1 and 2 points, on last second shots, by Jordan Mixon, in the 2 games against Arkansas. By all rights, both those games coulda/shoulda been L's for Blair and crew...

Definitely agree. In truth, Baylor's preseason ranking of #4 was probably a bit lofty considering our key losses going into this season. We probably should have started out at about #6, IMO. So, at our current ranking, we really basically have just met expectations relative to where I think we should have started the season.

Of course the "Covid loss" to Iowa State proved to be a bit of a blow for us, and we were just not cohesive enough early in the season to deal with the offensive firepower of the guards/system at Arkansas early on...
