  • Look no further than 90 seconds into the Lady Bears’ 86-50 win on Saturday at Oklahoma State for evidence of exactly how much things have changed for Baylor sophomore Kalani Brown this season. From WacoTrib.

The sequence went like this: Oklahoma State center Kaylee Jensen, Brown’s defensive assignment and the Big 12’s leading scorer and rebounder, missed a long jumper. Baylor’s Alexis Prince grabbed the rebound and sent a long, outlet pass sailing up the court … and into the hands of the 6-foot-7 Brown, streaking to the basket for a layup and a 4-0 lead.

The play turned heads everywhere in Gallagher-Iba Arena except on the bench for No. 2 Baylor, where they’re growing used to seeing Brown do the extraordinary.
