KANSAS CITY, Mo. (March 6, 2012) -- Baylor is chasing perfection in this week's Big 12 women's tournament.
Most other teams are chasing bids to the NCAA tournament.
The top-seeded Lady Bears can reach 40 wins with three in the league tournament in Kansas City and six more in the NCAA tournament. That would cap a perfect season and elevate them to the upper echelons of women's basketball history.
Second-seeded Oklahoma and defending national champion Texas A&M appear to be safely in the NCAA tournament field. But things are wide open after that: Iowa State, Kansas State, Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech could all play their way in.
It should make for some tense drama at Municipal Auditorium.
