The Bears took care of business yesterday, dominating Houston Christian with a finals score of 79-35. The team was playing short handed, with guard Sarah Andrews wearing a boot and senior Aijha Blackwell still out due to a lower leg injury. Kendra Gillispie scored a career-high 10 points in her first career start. Freshman Bella Fontleroy had a double-double, with 17 points and 11 rebounds. This was a great game for the Bears, who take the court again Wednesday night.

Baby Molly Wins Big in Halftime Baby Race!

At halftime of the women’s basketball game on Sunday, Baylor held a baby race. Arguably the most entertaining, and undoubtedly the cutest halftime performance ever, Molly took the win. She was ready from the jump, crawling at lightning speed towards her mom and finishing in 17.04 seconds!

Bear of the Day

Today’s Bear of the Day is Langston Love. Friday was his first game playing without a knee brace after his torn ACL last season, and to prove to the world he’s fully back, he had an INSANE dunk against Gonzaga. (Also shoutout Dale Bonner for the pretty pass). It’s so great to have Love playing this season, can’t wait to see him continue to progress!

It was a great weekend for Baylor Athletics! Happy Monday y’all!
