Baylor won its third national championship — all since — with its win Sunday over Notre Dame. Two No. Once the game began, though, practically nothing went according to plan for either team.
In a later game, UConn faces Notre Dame. Time and TV here. Kim Mulkey rejects the notion that being the No. The Lady Bears , who are riding a game winning streak and have trounced four opponents in the NCAA Tournament by an average of 38 points, face Final Four newcomer Oregon in Friday's national semifinals.
Mulkey, who's won titles as a player and an assistant coach at Louisiana Tech in addition to guiding Baylor to a pair of NCAA crowns, said it would be a mistake to assume the Lady Bears are clearcut favorites. We're going to claw. We're going to compete. We're going to give it our best shot," she added.
We came here to win some more basketball games.
The Lady Bears are led by an imposing frontcourt featuring 6-foot-4 Lauren Cox and Kalani Brown and use their size to dominate on both ends of the floor. Oregon, meanwhile, plays a contrasting perimeter-oriented style that coach Kelly Graves acknowledged has prompted some people to call the Ducks the Golden State Warriors of women's college basketball.
You can call me old-fashioned. I'm good with all of it," Mulkey added. The Ducks are 12th in 3-pointers attempted with and fourth in 3-pointers made with Baylor, meanwhile, leads the country in field goal percentage defense at I don't think any team can go and think how many points are we going to score.
Our approach is we know what we can do defensively. Brown averages They're just throwing it up and over the opponents. She'll get the ball to them in spots where it makes them look good.
She certainly is not the only great player on that team, but it starts and stops with her. Still, Mulkey has no interest in posting Auriemma's comment on a bulletin board. We just kept winning, everybody else would lose a conference game or conference tournament game, so we were the fortunate ones to be selected as the overall No.
It doesn't offend me. On Thursday, she recalled beating USC by 16 points in the semifinals and the scene in the victorious locker room, where Barmore tossed around some trash cans while addressing the team.
He got our attention. Here I am 56 years old and I remember the moment. We can laugh about it, talk about how wonderful it was. But he got us ready for that championship game.
