WBB takes on TCU, 3:00 pm CT, Schollmaier Arena, ESPN2

  • Baylor’s Lady Bears Basketball team takes on the TCU Lady Frogs today at Schollmaier Arena in Fort Worth, TX at 3:00 P.m. CT. The game will be on ESPN2 and and you can also listen on Baylor’s network.
  • Baylor's had to sit with its first conference loss for the last five days since being upset by No. 11/13 Texas, 85-79, Monday night at the Ferrell Center. From Baylor Bear Foundation’s Jerry Hill.

"It's hard to sit on a loss for a long period of time," said senior guard Alexis Jones, who's averaging 14.9 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game. "I hope everybody on the team - and I'm sure they are - is itching to play again. Hopefully, this loss puts some more fight in us, not just for one game, but the rest of the season."

It was the Lady Bears' first home loss in nearly three years and first loss in Big 12 play since last year's league opener at Oklahoma State.

Now, in the rare position of chasing instead of leading the Big 12 title race, Baylor (23-12, 12-1) will try to bounce back with Sunday's 3 p.m. matchup against TCU (12-11, 4-8) at Schollmaier Arena in Fort Worth.

"Competitors step up to the plate, so step up to the plate," Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. "Hopefully, we'll respond. We've got five (games) to go and we've still got a chance to win a conference championship. And that doesn't change."

For the competitor, a break in the action can be torture. From Waco Trib.

The second-ranked Baylor Lady Bears have had almost a week to sit and stew, to chew on the mistakes they made in last Monday’s 85-79 home loss to No. 11 Texas. The Texas game was Baylor’s fourth in a nine-day stretch, so the chance for rest was welcomed.

But they’re more than ready to get back at it, and redeem themselves a bit.

After its most complete win of the season Wednesday against Texas Tech, TCU is carrying as much confidence as the Horned Frogs have had all season into one of its most difficult matchups. From the Star-Telegram.

No. 2 Baylor visits Schollmaier Arena at 3 p.m. Sunday with TCU (12-11, 4-8 Big 12) having gone 4-3 in its past seven Big 12 games. TCU is still looking for its first win (0-9) against the perennial Final Four contenders since joining the Big 12 in 2012.
