Baylor Lady Bears begin Big 12 play at Kansas State, KWTX, Even with just 10 scholarship players heading into the regular season, Baylor women's basketball head coach Kim Mulkey felt like she had a strong core of talent.

Through 11 games, No. 6 Baylor has won 10 games, with its only loss coming in the fourth game of the season at No. 8 UCLA. That day, the Lady Bears were without sophomore Lauren Cox (medical issue) and Mulkey, who did not make the trip because of a family emergency involving her daughter, Makenzie, who is also an assistant coach on the team.

Since the 82-68 loss, Baylor has won all seven games prior to the Big 12 conference opener against Kansas State. It will be the earliest start date for a conference opener in Baylor's program history since joining the NCAA ranks.

From the 1981-82 through the 2014-15 seasons, Baylor began the conference schedule after the calendar flip. In the first year of pre-New Year conference games, Baylor dropped a road contest to unranked Oklahoma State.
