Lady Bears focused on winning another ring in Oklahoma City

WACO, Texas One day after the reigning Big 12 player of the year was snubbed for the award this year, Kim Mulkey says her Lady Bears are focused on winning rings and not individual awards.

Mulkey was asked about the voting for Big 12 player of the year honors and took the high road in her answer. Mulkey says coaches vote and have opinions, much like politics. She didn't revisit her thoughts from earlier in the season on Brown and the player of the year honor.

Mulkey then said her players come to Baylor to win rings and not individual awards. They have one ring from the regular season this year already and they plan to earn another ring with a Big 12 tournament championship this weekend.

Baylor opens the Big 12 tournament on Saturday in the quarterfinal round at 1:30pm.
