So the Kansas State team that walloped Texas goes to Morgantown and gets beat 60-30 by West Virginia. Having seen both of those teams in Waco this year, that result really surprises me. Kansas State missed all 18 threes they attempted and shot 20% from the field. Yikes. The next 8 teams in the conference after Baylor this year are all impressively mediocre. Anyone can beat anyone. Then there is Oklahoma who may be lucky to win another game.
Honestly, we only look at Baylor, but this Conference needs to do some deep soul searching. As a Conference, this years addition is not good.
looks like 5 tourney teams unless they all just give up. i hate winning the conference early because we are more likely to take a loss like we did a couple years back...

Scott scored 12 on 4-12 shooting against us, 9 of which in the 4th when it was long out of reach and we had shut down Carleton. Joens missed her only 2 FGs but made 4 FTs against us.

And that's apparently enough to get you player of the week honors.

Maybe they should just call it player of the day instead.

Seriously, the criteria for this award is baffling.

The award is a joke it seems oftentimes

Once again, the Big 12 gets it wrong!

Consolation prize. It's like the kid who spends all of his money trying to bust a balloon with a dart at the carnival. Eventually the guy feels sorry for him and hands him a plastic giraffe.

Lauren Cox block


KIM MULKEY on Resting Players

"We have depth. The most important thing is to have legs and energy when playoff time rolls around. We haven't been able to rest Kalani and Cox the last couple of years. I'd like to rest Cox more, but what happens is she's guarding a post player and then when I go big she's guarding a perimeter player. She stays on the floor a little longer than I'd like her to. The more I can rest them in January and February, when March rolls around they're fresh."

Why do these kids make such long lists now? Are they really seriously considering all of these?

Hi WacoKelly83,
Great point ! Thanks for posting.
It's ironic what different parents have told me generically about recruiting. Parents have said that the huge amounts of mail and text messages from recruiting schools is massive for a Top 25 recruit. The long list from the athlete is actually a shrinking message to the other 100+ coaches that they are no longer being considered. Parents have said they encourage the list to keep their teenager from being overwhelmed by those schools that they are not considering.

About time for you to make another Texas visit.
You know your LadyBear tickets are always available to you.
Plenty of good whiskey too... but I know we can't talk about that here.

Hahaha. Never had a drink of that devil's brew in my entire life. Not gonna start now. But thanks for the offer my friend. Hopefully, the good Lord willing, one day I will get to see the Lady Bears in person.
God bless.

Pale if you would like to fly over for the Feb 16th game with OU at Waco I wiill pay for your round trip flight from CA to Dallas. I'm sure there's several in Dallas that would bring you down for the game. If not I would do that too.
