WACO, TX — The top-seeded Lady Bears will play Iowa for a shot at the Final Four tonight in Greensboro, NC.

Baylor is known to be led by newly named All-Americans Kalani Brown and Lauren Cox, but Baylor grad transfer Chloe Jackson has continued to step up and be a spark for the Lady Bears all season.

Jackson is deeper in the tournament than she ever was with LSU, and she's playing the most minutes she's had to.

"I'm not really nervous. I'm really just having fun," Jackson said. "I'm just enjoying the process."

Nerves might not be a concern, but stamina could be.

Jackson's minutes have gone up in every game in the tournament. She only got one minute of rest against South Carolina in the Sweet 16.

"I told her, "I know you're tired but you're fixing to get to play in an Elite 8 game, can you go a few more minutes?" And she said, "Yeah, Coach, I got this." Baylor Head Coach Kim Mulkey said recalling a conversation with her point guard during the South Carolina game.

Tip off for the Lady Bears' Elite 8 game is set for 6 p.m. CT.
