Congrats to the Baylor University Lady Bears!

The Baylor women's basketball team finished 40-0 this season, winning the national championship last night, 80-61 over Notre Dame.  Congrats to the Lady Bears!

I got my master's degree at Baylor, and met my wife there.  It was a great two years.  This was in 1988-89, the last part of their glory years in football under Coach Grant Teaff.  After Coach Teaff retired, things went downhill, and they were down and out for a long time, so it's great to see them back winning across the board. 

One interesting statistic is, their 'Big 3' teams- football, men's basketball, and women's basketball won a total of 80 games this season.  That's the most of any NCAA program in history.  That's impressive.  Maybe even more impressive than a girl who dunks.
