Another sweet season for Sims and Baylor women

WACO, Texas (AP) -- Odyssey Sims and Baylor are having another sweet season.

The Lady Bears have made it to the third round of the NCAA women's tournament for the sixth year in a row. But there are still surely plenty of people surprised to see them back in the Sweet 16 this year.

This is where Baylor's season came to an unexpected end last March in a physical one-point loss to Louisville. And that was before the departures of Brittney Griner, the two-time AP Player of the Year, and four other seniors.

Luckily for the Lady Bears, they still had Sims, who could still break Jackie Stiles' NCAA single-season scoring record.

Baylor (31-4), the No. 2 seed in the Notre Dame Regional, plays Saturday in a rematch against No. 3 seed Kentucky (26-8).
