DOUBLE TROUBLE
• Baylor's NaLyssa Smith and Queen Egbo have been on a tear the last six games. The duo has combined for 226 points while shooting 58.7 percent during that stretch.
• Smith is averaging 24.7 points these last six games to go with 9.7 rebounds and a 63.2 shooting percentage. The senior forward has also stretch her range with a 2-for-4 mark from 3.
• Egbo has a double-double in each of the last four games. During that time, she's averaging 17 points, 13.3 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per contest. 

SHARE THE SUGAR
• Baylor is No. 6 in the country - and second among Power 5 teams - with 64.3 percent of its buckets assisted on this season.
• Adding to that, the Bears are sixth in the country in assist-to-turnover ratio. The past three games, BU has committed eight or fewer turnovers.
• In Baylor's Big 12 wins this season, BU assists on 69.8 percent of its buckets. In their league losses, the Bears assist on 54.8 percent.

WALKING DOUBLE-DOUBLE
• NaLyssa Smith is eighth in the country with 17 double-doubles on the season. That mark ties her for sixth in BU history for double-doubles in a single season.
• Smith is fourth in program history with 45 career double-doubles. She's four away from tying Maggie Davis-Stinnett (1986-89, 1990-91)
• The senior is averaging 20.8 points and 11.4 rebounds per game which ranks No. 11 and No. 14 in the country, respectively.

LET IT FLY
• Baylor's program record for triples made came on Dec. 18, 2019 against Arkansas State when Juicy Landrum caught fire and set an NCAA record with 14 triples. Besides that record-setting performance, BU hadn't drained more than a dozen shots from deep since 2011.
• BU's record for 3-point attempts in a season came in 2013-14 when the Bears attempted 596 3s. 
• From that season to 2020-21, Baylor made 10 or more 3-pointers in a game only five times across a total of 281 games (1.78 percent). BU has done so five times this season. 
• At Kansas, Baylor nearly set a record with a 14-for-29 display from the perimeter. BU's 14 treys marked the second most in program history.
• Prior to this year, only 14 Bears had made six or more 3s in a game. Two of them had done it multiple times (Makenzie Robertson, 2012, 2014) and Jennifer King (1990, 1991, 1993).
• Sarah Andrews and Ja'Mee Asberry have already joined that elite club this season. Andrews went 6-for-8 against Morehead State and from deep and Asberry fired off 6-of-8 against Alcorn State. Asberry then went 6-for-11 at Kansas, and Andrews set a career-high with a 7-for-10 mark.
• Andrews' seven 3s tied for third in program history. She is now one of six Bears in program history to hit a minimum of seven triples in a game.
• Jordan Lewis joined the club with her 6-of-7 performance against Iowa State.
• Baylor - with 179 3s on the season - has the fourth-highest 3pointer total for a single season in program history.

I would think this game could be subjected to some pretty bad weather. Certainly the crowd will be light(er).

OSU cancelled all classes today and closed campus offices due to the winter weather according to the OSU website.The Athletics Department website still states that the game tips at 6:30.As mentioned above this will most certainly reduce attendance.

Wow, so low energy. Pick it up ladies. This would be a devastating loss. Long way to go, though.

FWIW, OKST scored 11 in the first 5 1/2 minutes tonight.

They scored 6 total in the 1st half against KSt on Sunday.

These refs are horrible! Bickle gotten fouled twice and should've gone to the line 2 times
Baylorkid

Bickle and Owens providing great energy!

That break was a shot in the arm.

Bickle looking good.

No crowd at all!

From down 7, to leading by 1 to end Q1. That's a pretty good start, despite the missed buckets and poor ball handling at the start.

I'm guessing the refs think the fewer fouls called, the quicker they can get out of there before the weather gets any worse.

Yes! Finally the big lineup

Egbo is playing well too.

Not really she's missing lots of shots!
Baylorkid

C'mon Egbo! Pass the ball to Bickle! She was open for the short jumper! She's proven in this game her shot is on
historian
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Best stat so far (besides the score:

OSU: 5 fouls
Baylor: only 1 foul

Egbo is playing sound basketball, at least in terms of self control.

Better passing and shooting now. Need to step up the D. Queen getting some good rebounds, but she has to finish at the rim.

Go Bears! Time for a run before half.

Looking sluggish. Gotta fight for rebounds and knock down some shots. 3 ball has been off for the last few games. Hope this isn't a sign of their legs getting tired. Get Bickle in there for a spark.

44-41 Baylor. Defense has gotten very soft and things aren't looking good

Yep! OK state may be shooting 30 percent but our defense is still horrible

Fugly win but a win nonetheless.

Disturbing trend to play to the level of our competition.

Baylor played their C game and managed to win a far too close game on the road; happy for the W - move on to the next.
Well, I ain't no greenhorn!!
