Lady Bears didn’t take home the prize, but enjoyed the ride
The Baylor Lady Bears didn’t take home the prize, but they did leave Los Angeles with an experience they’ll never forget.
The team was nominated for “best team” in a champions-only category that was won by the U.S. women’s national soccer team.
Following the ceremony the team posted a tongue-in-cheek response.
”Thank you ESPN for a great ESPYs and congratulations to the USWNT for ‘upsetting’ us to take “Best Team!”
The other nominees in the category included the Boston Red Sox, Clemson Tigers, New England Patriots, Toronto Raptors, and Virginia Cavaliers.
The winner was decided by fan voting on ESPN’s website.
All of the Lady Bears with the exception of Queen Egbo and Chloe Jackson were at the event.
Egbo is with Team USA training for the 2019 FIBA 19U Championships later this month and Jackson, a guard for the WNBA's Chicago Sky has a scheduling conflict.
Coach Kim Mulkey walked the red carpet with her son, Kramer Robertson, who is on All-Star break while playing with the AAA Memphis Redbirds.
Mulkey’s daughter, Makenzie Fuller, as well as assistant Jennifer Roberts were on hand for the event.
Actor Tracy Morgan served as host at the Microsoft Center in LA.
The team was headed home Thursday.
