Baylor women dominate Big 12 awards after 10th title in row

NCAA

IRVING, Texas (AP)Baylor senior post Lauren Cox has been selected the Big 12 player of the year, and Kim Mulkey is the league’s top coach again after the Lady Bears won their 10th consecutive regular-season conference title.

The Big 12 awards announced Monday are determined by a vote of the league’s 10 coaches who couldn’t vote for their own players.

Defending national champion Baylor (28-2) had a record 58-game Big 12 regular-season winning streak before losing 57-56 Sunday at Iowa State.

Mulkey, in her 20th season, is the Big 12 coach of the year for the third season in a row, and eighth time overall.

Cox, the 6-foot-4 senior averaging 12.5 points and 8.4 rebounds a game, is one of four Baylor players who got individual Big 12 awards. DiDi Richards is defensive player of the year; 6-3 center Queen Egbo is the top sixth player; and graduate transfer Te’a Cooper shares newcomer of the year honors with Oklahoma State forward Natasha Mack.

Kansas State center Ayoka Lee, with 19 double-doubles this season, is the league’s freshman of the year.
