12.19.2012 Daily Bears Report: Lady Bears Roll Vols

If you didn't watch last night's game, you missed a bloodletting of epic proportion in the first half, especially, as the Lady Bears took a 25-point lead into the break and never looked back.



I chose the picture above for the simple reason that it was the only one I could find in the system where you could see the shirts worn last night by both Baylor and Tennessee in their pre-game warmups. Those shirts honored the victims at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. In case you don't click on everything I put up on the front page, if you want to donate to a fund created by SB Nation's blog for the Texas Rangers,, you can do so. The proceeds go to the family of Emilie Parker, and I can personally vouch for the fact that 100% of the donations will get to the intended recipients.

No. 3 WBB Races Past No. 10 Tennessee, 76-53 - Baylor Bears Official Athletic Site -
Brittney Griner scored the first six points of the game and third-ranked Baylor had the first 17, extending its home winning streak to 45 in a row with a 76-53 victory over 10th-ranked Tennessee on Tuesday night.

I know they have to be relatively impartial in the recaps for those games, but I'd like to see note sometime how dominant the Lady Bears were last night. They began the half with a 17-0 run and finished it with another 18-5 run to lead Tennessee by the biggest margin ever at halftime. At one point, they hit 4 3s in a row without the Lady Vols scoring a point. Brittney Griner might have had a half-dozen blocks in the space of 2 minutes. It was beautiful.

Also, and maybe this was just me, did anybody else notice that Mulkey seemed to have on more makeup than she typically does? Someone likes the bright lights of ESPN.
