LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Baylor begins the 2014 season Friday at UNLV's Sportco Kick-Off Classic vs. No. 3 Washington at 11 a.m. CT and San Diego at 1:15 p.m. CT. The Lady Bears are ranked No. 16 to begin the season by USA Softball.
Baylor will follow Saturday with games against UC Davis and UNLV and will close the tournament Sunday vs. Arkansas. All games are played at UNLV's Eller Media Stadium.
The Huskies, much like Baylor, have most of their starting lineup returning for another run towards the WCWS. Washington fell to Oklahoma in the WCWS title game last season, and the Huskies are looking for their 20th-straight trip to the NCAA Tournament.
San Diego, out of the West Coast Conference, finished the season at 24-29 in 2013.
Baylor is coming off its eighth NCAA Tournament appearance under 14th year head coach Glenn Moore in 2013. The Lady Bears finished 42-19 and were eliminated in the College Station Regional title game by Texas A&M.
The Lady Bears are expected to start Whitney Canion in the pitcher's circle vs. Washington Friday. The sixth-year senior was named to the USA Softball Preseason Top 50 Watchlist.
