WACO, Texas With the entire Baylor women's basketball team on the plane, the Big 12 canceled the conference tournament.

"We were about to take off, and Coach Mulkey said she told the pilot to hold on because we weren't quite sure yet, and she didn't want to get in the air and turn around," said Baylor junior guard, Moon Ursin.

The plane never took off to KC and later that day, the NCAA canceled the tournament, adding to the disappointment.

"It was just tough all around," said Ursin.

With the season over, Moon headed back home to Louisiana.

"It's just been the worst trip home ever," said Ursin.

Moon's grandmother Ruby Alexander became infected with the coronavirus.

I'm not sure how long she was sick. She went back in on Monday.

On Tuesday morning, doctors told Moon's family she had made a great recovery, but Ruby Alexander died on Tuesday night at age 79.
The family did not receive her COVID-19 test results until after her death
