Thanks for sharing the team and individual statistics, Brian Ethridge. The highest winning % WBB head coaches at the Ferrell Center with 13 combined national championships. Great match-up tonight. It will be fun to watch.

Just win Lady Bears!



And my "Key of the Game"
-Cox, Jackson, and Landrum must all have a good shooting night from 15 - 20 ft

Jessica Morrey of KCEN-TV said in a love remote from the Ferrell Center during the 6 o'clock sports segment that Kim Mulkey has never lost more than 1 non-conference basketball game since coming to Baylor. Let's hope that streak continues tonight.

I expect actual attendance tonight to be above 10,000. We'll see how close the Baylor-UConn WBB game gets to maximum capacity.

Anyone know who is all sitting in the recruit section? Jordyn Oliver is the only one I recognize.

I'm wondering what a "love remote" is and whether it's legal in the state of Texas.

Geno's feet must be bothering him. He's wearing what look like hush puppies and walking a bit gingerly out of the locker room.
