Brittney Griner scored her 54th career double-double last night as top-ranked Baylor took care of business against Texas Tech, winning 89-47. Odyssey Sims, Brooklyn Pope, and Nae-Nae Hayden were also in double figures, with Sims scoring a team-leading 18 points. The Lady Bears take on TCU on Saturday afternoon in the Ferrell Center, but then head to Connecticut for their last non-conference game of the year, a Monday night showdown against (3/2) UConn.

Baylor Men's Basketball takes on conference newcomer WVU tonight at 8:00 PM in the Ferrell Center in a nationally televised game (ESPN2). The Mountaineers have won their last three in a row, and the Bears look to break that streak tonight. If the Bears win tonight, they will tie their 4th best record for wins in the Big 12, and improve to 2-0 all time against the Mountaineers.

Baylor Softball swept Southern Miss 2-0, 2-1 in the doubleheader yesterday behind both the pitching and offense of Whitney Canion, Courtney Repka, and Heather Stearns. The three pitchers combined for 22 strikeouts in 14 innings, while only allowing 6 hits across the two games. Canion and Stearns also provided much of the power last night, with Stearns winning the second game with a walk-off solo home run. The Lady Bears stay at home for the next few games, hosting the Miken Classic from February 15-17th at Getterman Stadium.

Baylor Baseball was chosen fourth in the Big 12 Preseason Coaches' Poll after winning the conference last season. This is the 14th time in the last 15 seasons the Bears have been picked to finish in the top half of the conference, and the third consecutive season Baylor's been picked to finish fourth. The Bears open the 2013 season at UC Irvine this weekend, and play their first home game on February 19th against Texas State.

Baylor Men's Golf finished third at the UTSA Oak Hills Invitational, and sophomore Kyle Jones won medalist honors after the final round on Tuesday. Jones had been in third, but a four-under-par 67 in the final round moved him to the top of the leaderboard. This was Jones' first career victory.

Baylor Women's Golf is still in sixth place after the second round of play at the Northrup Grumman Regional Challenge yesterday against a very tough field. Hayley Davis is in 10th place overall at 4-over-par, trailing tournament leader Alejandra Cangrejo (Duke) by 6 strokes. Baylor will play the final round today starting at 10:00 AM.
