STARTING FIVE

Wednesday’s game between Baylor and BYU marks the only contest between the two programs during the regular season.

Senior Sarah Andrews has 216 career 3-pointers and needs 45 more to break Odyssey Sim’s record of 258. The senior guard has hit at least two from range in 17 of 21 games this year.

The Bears have shot 50% or better from the floor in eight games this season. Baylor is 267-2 all-time when shooting 50% or higher from the field. The Bears went 33-of-59 (55.9%) from the floor in Sunday’s 83-60 win at Houston and six players finished in double figures led by Dre’Una Edwards’ 15 points.

The 23-point win over the Cougars marked the fourth 16-plus point victory by Baylor in Big 12 action this season. The 83 points scored by the Bears marked the third time in conference play, and 10th time this season, that Baylor has tallied 80-plus in a game.

SCOUTING THE SERIES WITH BYU

Baylor leads the all-time series with BYU, 2-1. The Bears won their only outing in Provo, 81-77, on Jan. 14, 1978.

Pretty terrible all game, but better in the second half.

How to see how they can win this one without any consistent defense. Maybe the altitude is impacting our Lady Bears. But that sounds like an excuse. We've had defensive issues before.

Getting it back to a 10 point deficit didn't last long
