Baylor coach Kim Mulkey expressed her love for the Big 12 following Sunday's Big 12 Tournament semifinal victory against Oklahoma State, saying she hopes every team from the league that earns an NCAA Tournament berth finds success.
And after needing to hold off a Cowgirl rally in a 77-69 victory, she praised that squad in particular.
