The Baylor women's basketball team is undefeated as it heads into the NCAA tournament this weekend, but it has been tied.

In the number of times, that is, that its players have appeared on ESPNHS covers.

Prior to tipoff of the first NCAA women's game on Saturday, we took a look back in this cover gallery to see some of the nation's top college players when they were in high school.

The Bears and fellow No. 1 seeds UConn and Stanford each have four ESPNHS magazine covers that feature current players.

Baylor's Brittney Griner, who is the only player in this year's tournament who has graced two covers, Brooklyn Pope and Odyssey Sims all enjoyed high school careers that landed them on covers.

For UConn, Tiffany Hayes, Bria Hartley, Michala Johnson and Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis have all been ESPNHS cover girls.

Stanford's Mikaela Ruef, Chiney Ogwumike, Nneka Ogwumike and Sarah Boothe can claim the same.

Notre Dame, the final No. 1 seed, can claim only Skylar Diggins and Devereaux Peters as cover features.

In all, 40 athletes from 21 teams are included in the gallery.
