Go big or go home. 

The Lady Bears are hosting Texas Tech Saturday for the second round of Big 12 action. 

Baylor went to Lubbock for their first game of conference play last month and won 73-56.

But, Head Coach Kim Mulkey said this team is not to be overlooked. They've kept most of their games within 10 points. 

The Lady Raiders have continued to develop under their new head coach, a new philosophy, and with that comes a new energy. 

Texas Tech is also working with a new lineup, one that will give the Lady Bears a different look to prepare for. 

"They're very confident right now. They're big. They go big, in fact, they're playing a bigger lineup together than when we first played them," Coach Mulkey said. 

"They're big and physical. But, we also have a big lineup with putting Lauren at the three and NaLyssa at the four. So, I think we can match up well with them as they get bigger," Kalani Brown, the senior center for the Lady Bears, said. 

Tip off for the Lady Bears' game Saturday is set for 1 p.m.
