Where? Lubbock, Texas.
When? Saturday the 19th, versus St. John's in Palo Alto.
Why? A strong opening to the season plus Baylor. The six-game losing streak almost put them out.
How? They were an at-large selection out of the Big XII.
Surprise? Well, I was surprised. The win over Baylor probably sealed the deal single-handedly.
Who's driving this thing, anyway? Kristy Curry, since 2006. She's been an assistant in quite a few places.
Record: 22-10 (8-8)
Best win: Baylor (H)
Worst loss: Oklahoma State (A)
Notable results: Penn State (L, A, 76-68), Oklahoma (W, H, 61-56)- okay, maybe it wasn't just the Baylor win.
4-7 on the road, even counterbalanced by 3-1 at neutral sites, probably won't help them in the tournament. Junior post Kierra Mallard is the only player averaging in double figures, with 12.1 points per game- but senior post Teena Wickett and sophomore guard Casey Morris aren't far off the pace, and sophomore guard Monique Smalls has been coming on strong in the last few weeks.
