The Lady Bears are in Kansas and will be seeking their fourth straight conference victory Wednesday night. 

Head Coach Kim Mulkey describes the Jayhawks as having quite possibly the quickest guards in the league. 

Kansas is coming off a road rivalry win over K-State... a confidence booster Baylor will have to shut down Wednesday night if they want to stay perfect in BIG 12 play.  

The Jayhawks are led by sixth year star-guard Jessica Washington. 

But, Coach Mulkey recognizes Washington's not the only threat.

"We're gonna guard you tough, try and keep you out of the paint, get back in transition defense. Don't give them any open looks, but you have to stop dribble penetration to prevent that from happening because she's not the only great perimeter player they have. They have other guards that can do exactly what she can do," Coach Mulkey said. 

Tip off for the Lady Bears game is 7 p.m. Wednesday. 

They'll return to the Ferrell Sunday to play West Virginia.
