Game Previews

WBB Welcomes McNeese State Midweek - Baylor University Official Athletic Site, The No. 6/6 Baylor Lady Bears welcome McNeese State for a midweek matchup on Wednesday, Dec. 13 at 12 p.m. (CT) inside the Ferrell Center. It is the final home game of the nonconference season for Baylor before the team heads to Nicholls State to play on Monday, Dec. 18, in Thibodaux, La.

Clearly, the sixth-ranked Baylor Lady Bears have one of the most efficient offenses in the country, averaging 92.3 points per game and shooting 52.9 percent from the field and a phenomenal 44.8 percent from 3-point range.

But, the defensive end is where coach Kim Mulkey believes the Lady Bears are "just a tad better than I thought we would be at this stage playing so many new players."

"You can throw some zone in there and maybe mix some stuff in there," said Mulkey. "I'm a firm believer that you're going to have off nights. We're not going to shoot the ball great many nights. But, if we can get a big rebound, make a defensive stop, get a steal, I think that's important for this team."

Baylor ranks No. 2 nationally in scoring offense, field goal percentage and 3-point shooting percentage and has a national-best 1.88 assist-to-turnover ratio. Mulkey credits point guards Kristy Wallace and freshman Alexis Morris for the team's nearly 2-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio.
