The Lady Bears have done it again! The Baylor women's basketball team has clinched a share of the Big 12 championship title with their win over West Virginia Monday.

The Lady Bears defeated the Mountaineers 64 to 39 in West Virginia.

Baylor got out to a slow start. They did not score a bucket for the first 5:56 of the game. At halftime, they led by only 10 points.

But, in the third quarter, the Lady Bears found their rhythm, scoring 25 points to West Virginia's nine.

This is the team's 10th Big 12 championship title in a row.

Head Coach Kim Mulkey made history last week after becoming the fastest D1 coach, man or woman, to win 600 games.

Mulkey has been named a finalist for the 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame. She was nominated alongside Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett. She is the first person to win a National Championship as a player, assistant coach and head coach.
