Lady Bears Basketball

Cox, Brown Dominate Again as Lady Bears Roll Past K-State - Baylor University Official Athletic Site, Kalani Brown and Lauren Cox combined for 49 points and 38 rebounds as No. 4 Baylor women's basketball defeated Kansas State, 75-50, Saturday night at the Ferrell Center.

Kansas State coach Jeff Mittie said his freshman post duo of Mary Lakes and Ashley Ray “got a real education” against Baylor’s Kalani Brown and Lauren Cox in Saturday’s game at the Ferrell Center.

The final numbers read more like a woodshed beating than a classroom lesson.

Brown and Cox combined for 49 points - one less than K-State’s team - and grabbed 19 rebounds apiece as the fourth-ranked Lady Bears (17-1, 7-0) ran their winning streak to 14 with a convincing 75-50 victory over the visiting Wildcats before a crowd of 6,131.

”Their frontline is as formidable as I think anyone in the country,” Mittie said. “Their size, obviously, their experience in there. Our freshmen got a real education against Brown and Cox tonight.”

Brown, Cox own boards as Lady Bears down K-State, 75-50 | Lady Bears Basketball | wacotrib.com, It’s never been done before in the Big 12. Kim Mulkey has never seen it happen either.

Nearly halfway into the conference schedule, it’s a known fact that the dominant duo of Kalani Brown and Lauren Cox is unstoppable offensively. Because both can face up to the basket and score as well as get work done with their backs to the basket, their offensive production has been overwhelming for the Lady Bear opposition thus far.

But Saturday night in No. 4 Baylor’s return to the Ferrell Center after nearly three weeks away, Brown and Cox each had 19 rebounds as the Lady Bears defeated Kansas State, 75-50.

K-State women fall at No. 4 Baylor | K-State Sports | themercury.com, Despite a strong start, the Kansas State women’s basketball fell to No. 4 Baylor, 75-50, on the road on Saturday. With the win, the Bears swept the regular-season series against the Wildcats.

K-State (11-8, 3-5 Big 12) held Baylor to 20 percent shooting and forced six turnovers in the first six-plus minutes. During that stretch, four different players registered a field goal to give the Wildcats an early 9-6 lead.

The Lady Bears (17-1, 7-0) answered with a 10-run to close out the quarter and never looked back in the convincing win.

Kalani Brown leads Lady Bears to 14th straight win | The Baylor Lariat, This is the Lady Bears’ 14th straight win. Baylor is also now 7-0 in Big 12 play for the second season in a row.

Head coach Kim Mulkey has clinched a 7-0 start in conference play for the eighth time now.

Before the game, both Baylor and Kansas State wore t-shirts in honor of womens college basketball coach Pat Summitt, who passed away from Alzheimer’s in 2016.

No. 4 Baylor women win 14th straight, 75-50 over K-State, Statesman, Those missed shots by No. 4 Baylor just meant more opportunities for its big post players to grab some more rebounds.

Kalani Brown scored 33 points and Lauren Cox had 16, and they became the first Big 12 teammates to both have 19 rebounds in a conference game as the Lady Bears outrebounded Kansas State by 45 in a 75-50 victory Saturday to stretch their winning streak to 14 games.

"Baylor didn't shoot the ball real well for what they normally do, but all that did for them, for us, is just give them a chance to play volleyball against the glass and rebound it more," Kansas State coach Jeff Mittie said. "That really didn't help us as much as we needed it to."

Led by the 6-foot-7 Brown and 6-4 Cox, the Lady Bears finished with a 69-24 rebounding margin. They combined for 19 of Baylor's 32 offensive rebounds. Baylor missed eight of its first 10 shots and shot 42 percent (31 of 74) for the game, well below its season mark of 52 percent coming into the game that led the conference.
