BROWN'S SEASON-HIGH 32 POINTS HELPS BAYLOR TO 34TH CONSECUTIVE BIG 12 WIN IN THE REGULAR SEASON
   Chloe Jackson and Juicy Landrum  led the way for Baylor, scoring 16 and 15 points, respectively as Baylor picked up its 35th consecutive Big 12 win and 33rd-straight road win over a Big 12 opponent in a 71-48 win at Kansas State Wednesday. Landrum added five assists and four rebounds while Jackson led the team with seven assists and a season-high five steals. Kalani Brown  added a double-double with 10 points and a dozen rebounds while Lauren Cox narrowly missed one of her own with 14 points, nine rebounds and five assists. Baylor held Kansas State to a 26.7 shooting mark including just four 3-pointers on 24 attempts to improve to 22-1 on the season and 12-0 in league play.
 
LADY BEARS ARE NO. 1 FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 2013, BUT BAYLOR HASN'T GONE ANYWHERE
     Much was made when Baylor returned as No. 1 in the Associated Press Top 25 Jan. 28. However, Baylor has ranked in the top 10 in the AP poll for 87 consecutive weeks with high-rankings of two with the lowest being 13 since the 2013-14 season prior to regaining the top spot. Those 87-straight weeks mark the third-longest active streak in the nation next to UConn and Notre Dame. In fact, Baylor holds the second-longest active streak of ranking in the AP Top 25 at 294 weeks.
 
BROWN APPROACHES TWO MAJOR MILESTONES: 2,000 POINTS & 1,000 REBOUNDS
   Kalani Brown  is just 19 points shy of 2,000 career points and 10 rebounds shy of 1,000. It's possible the senior from Slidell, La. could achieve both feats Saturday vs. OU in front of a home crowd. Brown is set to become the seventh player in school history to reach 2,000 points and the seventh to reach 1,000 rebounds. However, she would be just the sixth player in school history to reach both, joining a distinguished class that includes Suzie Sinder Eppers, Brittney Griner, Sophia Young, Nina Davis and Maggie Davis-Stinnett.
