The Lady Bears take on Iowa State in Iowa to finish their season series against the 24th ranked Cyclones tonight. No. 1 ranked Baylor is riding on a 28-game Big 12 winning streak, and hope to extend the record by one more game. This is Baylor's 7th game against ranked opponents and the Lady Bears hold a 6-1 record. In the game at the Ferrell Center, the Lady Bears defeated Iowa State 67-39, and Baylor allowed no points in the paint to the Cyclones. Both Brittney Griner and Odyssey Sims are on the Wooden Award Midseason List for their second year in a row.

34 NBA scouts were at the men's basketball game on Monday, when the Bears defeated the Oklahoma State Cowboys 64-54. Though the scouts were there to check out Baylor's 7-1 freshman Isaiah Austin and OSU's point guard Marcus Smart and swing man Le'Bryan Nash, Bears' guard Pierre Jackson and power forward Cory Jefferson stole the spotlight. Jefferson had 11 points, 11 rebounds and 6 blocks, while Jackson had 18 points and 3 assists.

Irving HS offensive guard Rami Hammad will announce his choice between Baylor, Oklahoma, Texas, and TCU today, after being previously committed to Baylor. Texas appears to be the top choice for Hammad, now, after his success at the Semper Fi All-American Bowl caused his stock to rise precipitously.

Baylor Men's Golf signed three for 2013-2014, including the TAAPS 1-A Golf Champion Nick Thornton. The Bears start their season with the UTSA Oak Hills Invitational in San Antonio.

Three members of last semester's record setting soccer team will be trying out for pro soccer. The Bears hoping to move to the professional world are forward Lisa Sliwinski, midfielder Hanna Gilmore, and defender Carlie Davis, all of whom were invaluable to the Bears in their Big 12 tournament and NCAA run last season. Coach Marci Jobson hopes that the potential success of her alumni will lead to more players picking Baylor as a place that will prepare them for the professional level.
