Our Lady Bears Basketball is in Ames, Iowa today to face the Iowa State Cyclones at 7:00 p.m. CT in Hilton Coliseum.
“This team doesn’t seem to get bothered by the fact that you’re in a hostile environment,” Mulkey said. “They’re mature enough to block it out, and they’re focused on the job at hand.”
“I think they’re bigger than our men’s team,” says Iowa State Coach Bill Fennelly. “They’re great, they’re well-coached. I’m sure it will be a UConn-Baylor final in Dallas, which will be great for the sport. Last night when you’re sitting in your room and you can’t sleep because if you go to sleep you’re going to have nightmares about what you’re playing and if you lay there and keep watching video, you’re never going to sleep. I told my wife that this reminds me of their championship team, and again, that was a great team, but there’s nothing they don’t have. You got size, you got depth, you got great experience, people know their roles, they play their roles, they defend, I don’t know what they don’t have that would prevent you from saying they’re going to be there in the end.”

Baylor topped Iowa State 68-42 in Waco on Jan. 18, 2017. The Lady Bears shot 48.3 percent from the floor, while holding the Cyclones to a 23.2 percentage. Baylor doubled Iowa State up on the boards, 50-25. Senior Nina Davis led the Lady Bears offensively with 17 points, sinking 7-of-8 field goal attempts and 3-of-3 free throw attempts. Sophomore Kalani Brown followed with 16 points on an 8-of-9 shooting performance and added eight rebounds. Freshman Lauren Cox also netted double-figures, coming off the bench for 12 points and eight rebounds.
Iowa State’s lack of height should allow the Lady Bears’ All American 5’11” Nina Davis to have another stellar performance.
Highlights Jan 18, 2017: Baylor Lady Bears vs. Iowa State Cyclones
- The Baylor women’s basketball program has had at least a share of six straight Big 12 Conference regular season titles, appeared in three Final Fours and won two national championships. From The Des Moines Register
Iowa State women’s basketball coach Bill Fennelly believes this season’s squad, ranked second in the nation, could be among the school's best.
The Cyclones will try to take down the Big 12’s best in Baylor when the two teams tangle at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Hilton Coliseum.
“I think it’s probably one of the best team’s Baylor’s had,” Fennelly said. “I know they won a national championship a few years ago with Brittney Griner and that crew. But this team — they’re putting up video game numbers.”
Baylor Lady Bears Named NCAA Team of the Week
Lost in the glow of UConn’s nightly highlights is the play of the Baylor Lady Bears. From NCAA dot com.

Baylor’s Men play Kansas tonight also. That game starts at 8:00 p.m. and can be watched on ESPN2. ODB’s Kendall Kaut has that Preview Here and will probably have a game thread up sometime before the start of the game. If the Lady Bears are true to form they should be up by 30 points by the start of the men’s game which should be just awesome. Here’s the Baylor Athletics’ preview of tonight’s men’s game vs Kansas:
