Good luck to Baylor’s basketball teams!

It’s March, and that means one thing — it’s time for the Big 12 and NCAA basketball tournaments! Once again, the Baylor Bears will be right in the middle of the action.

The games kick off tomorrow, with both the men’s and women’s teams playing in the Phillips 66 Big 12 tournaments in Kansas City, Missouri. The fourth-seeded Bears play fifth-seeded Kansas State at 11:30 a.m., while the top-seeded Lady Bears tip off at 1:30 p.m.

It’s been an outstanding season so far for both teams, and the Baylor Alumni Association encourages all Baylor alumni and friends to continue cheering our teams on to victory!

On the women’s side, coach Kim Mulkey has guided her team to a 31-0 record and a national number-one ranking. The Lady Bears were recognized with a number of All-Big 12 selections on Monday, including Mulkey being named Coach of the Year and Brittney Griner being honored as Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year.

Coach Scott Drew’s team has notched a 25-6 record so far, with a current national ranking of eleventh, as the Bears are enjoying one of the best seasons in school history. Senior Quincy Acy finished out his Baylor career by being named to the All-Big 12 second team, with junior Pierre Jackson joining him as a member of the All-Big 12 second team.
