The Baylor Lady Bears came through Tampa and conquered their way to their third national championship in program history.
Of course it’s hard to imagine this would happen without the effort of senior Chloe Jackson, who hit the game-winning shot against the Oregon Ducks on Friday night and led her team on the floor and in the huddle after the loss of Lauren Cox on Sunday night – leaving a lasting impact on this pragram after the huge sacrafices she made for this team.
“Well, I just looked at Coach [Kim] Mulkey,” Jackson says. “She was like, ‘You have four.’ I was like, ‘Okay, I got you.’ I’m not going to foul out. I knew my team needed me. I just had to play good defense and not pick up another one. Just stay composed.”
“Our best chance of winning the basketball game when we were losing the momentum at that point with Cox gone was to have those kids on the floor,” says Head Coach Kim Mulkey.
Everyone on the team made a sacrifice at some point to get the themselves here.
