Round 2: Lady Bears to Face Lobos

The Lady Bears completed step one of their National Championship run as they defeated the Lumberjacks of Northern Arizona Saturday night in the 1st Round of the NCAA Tournament in Tucson, Arizona. The Bears will face the New Mexico Lobos who upset Florida in their 1st round match-up.

The Lady Bears cruised through a first round victory over Northern Arizona, 74-56 on Saturday night. Coach Mulkey-Robertson's Lady Bears will have to play better when they face the Lobos of New Mexico on Monday night. The Lobos defeated the Florida Gators in their first round game.

Star senior Sophia Young scored 23 points and hauled in 8 rebounds in 33 minutes against the Lumberjacks to lead the team. However, the lack of outside shooting was evident. Baylor shot only 1 of 10 from beyond the arc, although the Lady Bears' performance in the paint was extraordinary.
