STORY LINES
• Baylor stays on the road this week as the Lady Bears head to Arizona to take on No. 9 Arizona State on Thursday before taking part in the Lopes Up Classic at GCU Softball Stadium against Northern Illinois and GCU. Baylor will wrap up the trip taking on the Sun Devils again on Sunday morning.
• BU is coming off a 5-0 showing on its Louisiana Road Trip a week ago. Baylor topped No. 13 Louisiana in Lafayette, 8-1, before sweeping the competition at the Louisiana Tech Invitational. Aliyah Binford, Nicky Dawson, Lou Gilbert and Gia Rodoni were named to the All-Tournament team.
• Baylor is now 2-1 against ranked opponents this season. After opening the year with a loss to No. 25 Arkansas, the Lady Bears have won back-to-back games against ranked foes No. 25 Mississippi State (10-6) and No. 13 Louisiana (8-1). BU has played a ranked opponent each week to start the season.
• Nicky Dawson is Baylor's all-time leader in career triples with 10 after ripping one to left center field against Louisiana Tech on March 7. The fifth-year senior outfielder now has three triples this season, a mark that ties her for fifth nationally.
• After 20 seasons as an assistant coach for the Lady Bears, Mark Lumley retired in October before he passed away in December after his fourth bout with cancer. The Baylor players and coaching staff will all be wearing blue ribbons in his honor. This season is for Lum.
