OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Led by Hall of Fame coach Kim Mulkey, Baylor enters its matchup in the women’s NCAA Tournament against Iowa as confident as ever.
The No. 2 seed Lady Bears (32-3) reached their seventh straight Sweet 16 with wins over Northwestern State and Arkansas last weekend.
Baylor will next face the third-seeded Hawkeyes (26-7) in Oklahoma City on Friday night, with the Lady Bears trying to reach the Elite Eight for the fifth time in six seasons.
Big 12 Conference Player of the Year Nina Davis leads Baylor, while Iowa – making its first Sweet 16 appearance since 1996 – is led by senior point guard Samantha Logic.
