Research Notes

  • Baylor averaged 1.90 points per possession when Brittney Griner got a touch in the low post against Notre Dame. Ten of Griner's 11 made field goals came from the low post, and Baylor was not nearly as effective when Griner got a touch farther away from the basket.

  • Baylor blew open a 6-point halftime lead by shooting 63 percent in the second half and more than doubling up Notre Dame on the glass.
