NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Alexis Prince scored 24 points to help No. 2 Baylor roll past No. 19 Oklahoma 103-64 on Monday night, just two days after Baylor coach Kim Mulkey’s rant defending her school.
After Baylor defeated Texas Tech on Saturday, Mulkey complained about the negative coverage and the dip in reputation that have followed the sexual assault scandal involving the school and its football program. She told Baylor fans if people tell them they will never send their daughters to Baylor, they should “knock them right in the face.”
Oklahoma coach Sherri Coale was among those who spoke out against Mulkey’s comments. She told The Oklahoman she was “disappointed” in Mulkey and that women have a responsibility to fight for one another. Mulkey has since apologized in interviews for using violence in her statement, saying she didn’t mean to appear insensitive to the women involved in the cases.
