Women's college basketball takes center stage this week as the #4 Baylor Bears take on the #11 Kansas Jayhawks. The defending national champion Bears are coming off one of the most memorable seasons in women's basketball history having finished 40-0 during the 2011-12 season. They return all five starters off that team and are considered a favorite to once again make the final four, although an early season loss to highly-ranked Stanford showed they can be beaten. Baylor features the most dominating player in the game in Brittney Griner, who combines with Odyssey Sims to give the Bears the best inside-out combination in the country. The Jayhawks are a veteran team that returns three starters from last year's NCAA playoff team. Senior Carolyn Davis is the top scorer, averaging nearly 17 points per game while senior guard, Angel Goodrich, accounted for half of the assists off last year's team. The top priority for Kansas will be replacing last year's top rebounder Aishah Sutherland and how well they do that will have much to do with how successful they will be this year.
