Be on the lookout:

  • If Lambert maintains her scoring average from last season (22.1) she could end up in the top 3 in Baylor?s career scoring average.
  • If she duplicates last year?s assist total (182), she would end up No. 3 in Baylor?s career assist list, and would be after only two seasons ... 233 would put her No. 2 and she would need 274 to take over the No. 1 slot from Toya Ellis.
  • Lambert needs only 17 career assists to move into Baylor?s career Top 10.
