With 2 more trophies won, Baylor women get break before expected long run through NCAA tourney

Brittney Griner and her Baylor teammates are getting a well-deserved break.

The top-ranked and defending national champion Lady Bears have a couple of days off after winning their third Big 12 tournament title in a row, to go with three consecutive regular-season championships.

What's still left on the list of goals for Baylor (32-1) is the biggest prize of all — another national championship.

Griner, the 6-foot-8 senior star, says the Lady Bears are right where they need to be heading into the NCAA tournament. They won their 30th game in a row for the Big 12 tourney title Monday night.

The Lady Bears will surely be the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament again. They host first- and second-round games March 24 and 26.
