TWELVE IN A ROW
• Baylor clinched a share of the regular-season Big 12 title with a 25-point win on the road at No. 8 Iowa State in front of a record crowd at Hilton Coliseum. 
• BU's streak of 12 regular-season titles in a row is the longest active streak in the country in men's AND women's hoops.
• The streak ties for fourth all-time in WBB behind Green Bay 20 (1999-2018), Louisiana Tech 15 (2003-17), Stanford 14 (2001-14) and Old Dominion 12 (1993-2004).
• With 24 combined conference championships, Baylor ties Stanford for the most among Power 5 schools since 2004-05.
• With a win over Texas Tech on Sunday or an Iowa State loss on Saturday, Baylor would clinch the championship outright.
• Baylor became the first school since Texas Tech in 2000 to start league play 0-2 and end up winning the conference title.

DOMINANT PERFORMANCE
• The stakes were high and the lights were bright as No. 5 Baylor walked into a raucous Hilton Coliseum to take on No. 8 Iowa State with a Big 12 championship on the line. 
• The first 14 minutes featured six lead changes and a three-point ISU lead but the rest of the game was dominated by the Bears.
• For the second time this season, BU scored the most points that ISU allowed all year (87). 
• Baylor shot 51.5 percent from the floor, a season high allowed by the Cyclones.
• Defensively, BU held Iowa State to a season-low 18.2 percent from the 3-point line. Entering Monday night's game, ISU led the country with a 39.4 3-point percentage.
• Only two opponents have pulled down 20+ rebounds against Iowa State this season: Queen Egbo with 21 (1/23) and NaLyssa Smith with 20 (2/28).

WALKING DOUBLE-DOUBLE
• NaLyssa Smith is fifth in the country with 20 double-doubles on the season. That mark ties her for second in BU history for double-doubles in a single season alongside Maggie Davis-Stinnett (1987-88).
• Smith is fourth in program history with 48 career double-doubles. She's one away from tying Davis-Stinnett (1986-89, 1990-91)
• The senior is averaging 21.8 points and 11.7 rebounds per game which ranks No. 9 and No. 9 in the country, respectively. She is one of two players in the country who is averaging 21+ points and 11+ rebounds per game.

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 196 3s on the season - has the third-highest 3pointer total for a single season in program history. 
• Asberry is fourth in program history with 67 3s made this season.

I love the way this team has come together and is playing excellent basketball at the end of the season after a brief but rough conference-covid start. So proud of these ladies. Keep the belief and let's win the next 2 tourneys!!

Great game by the Bears. Gray was off today but to BU's credit, Bickle and Smith put the clamps on her defensively. They made it very difficult for her to get good looks and most of the time when Gray touched the ball, it was far, far away from the basket. Bickle continues to improve with more playing time, getting in better shape, and getting further away from her knee injury in HS. She took three charges today, I think, which shows her effort. Smith. What more can you say? Owens is developing more range which makes this team more difficult to defend. I remember her having an excellent mid-range game in HS, but she is now a threat to score off the bench. She also had a nasty crossover move which lead to an assist in the second half. This team is playing well at the right time.

Awesome win to claim their 12 straight regular season B12 championship. The game was never in doubt and great contributions by each player.

This will always be a special group of WBB players in Baylor history. They stayed together as a team and remained Baylor Bears. They began the season as Big12 champs and they ended it as Big12 champs. No other team has endured so much.

Hats off to CNC and staff for continuing the tradition at the top of the Big 12.
