Mulkey on Cusp of 400 wins...

  • Baylor head coach Kim Mulkey is on the cusp of her 400th career victory. She is currently 399-85.
  • Only one person, her mentor Leon Barmore, attained the milestone quicker. It took Barmore 13 seasons and three games to accumulate 400 wins.
  • The earliest Mulkey could get 400 victories would be 13 years, 32 games.
  • UConn head coach Geno Auriemma needed 15 seasons and seven games for 400 and the legendary Pat Summitt achieved the feat in 15 seasons and 19 games.

The ninth-ranked and top-seeded Baylor Lady Bears enter the semifinals of the 2014 Phillips 66 Big 12 Women's Championship with a 27-4 overall record and have set their sights on a sixth Big 12 Tournament crown since 2005. Baylor claimed its fifth Big 12 regular season championship and fourth straight crown, as BU's first title came in 2005 with a 14-2 league record, followed by first-place finishes of 15-1 in 2011, 18-0 in both 2012 and 2013 and a co-championship with West Virginia at 16-2 in 2014. The Lady Bears are the first Big 12 program to win four straight regular season crowns. Baylor won the postseason championship and the Big 12's automatic NCAA Tournament bid in 2005, `09, `11, `12 and `13.
