Lady Bears Battle For Win against Oklahoma

Waco, TX - The Baylor Lady Bears spent much of the first half of their Big 12 schedule blowing teams out, at one point they were leading the nation in scoring margin. 

As they continue the second half of their conference slate, though, the sledding has gotten a bit tougher. Monday's game was the first single-digit margin for Baylor since their early loss to UCLA. With Kalani Brown dealing with foul trouble it took a little bit from everyone to stay unbeaten against a pesky Oklahoma team.

"I thought Lauren Cox, saved the day pretty much in the first half," Mulkey said after the game. "I thought Dekeiya battled and was consistent in there. Kristy struggled a little bit with her shot, but you can't take her off the floor because she'll make some kind of big play for you."

Mulkey says at this point in the year the games will get tighter as teams get to see you again and fatigue sets in, so she and her team are ready to for some tight-battles down the stretch.

"Guys we've got some good teams here late on our schedule," Mulkey said. "We haven't even seen TCU and we're fixing to see them for the first time on Saturday, then we go back to Oklahoma State. These six games are all going to be like this. We've just got to figure out how to battle to be able to win another championship."

Baylor hosts 24th ranked TCU, for the first time, on Saturday at the Ferrell Center.
