    That was brutal to watch. Noticeable difference in the game now.

    Cox is the heart and soul of their defense and defense is the heart and soul of Baylor's game.

    Glad to see them hold on and win.

    Congrats @geewago! Way to hold on for the win.

    Exciting game, got a whole lot dicier for Baylor once Cox went down. Had enough left to get the win. Nice job by the grad transfer at playing point.

    Was looking for an update this morning on how bad Lauren Cox is hurt. Didn't find anything but ran across this article from last year on how she plays with Type 1 Diabetes and a insulin pump. Not news to me but thought I'd post it here for those not aware. It's a pretty interesting read on how she and the Baylor staff manage this.

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaw/big12/2018/01/30/control-doesnt-control-me/1080415001/

    Not recommended for the haters here, won't be your cup of tea. :oops:

    Lauren Cox does not have and acl tear. It is estimated she will be ok in about 2 months. She was walking without crutches yesterday and other than the burdensome wrap she appeared just fine. Doctor brought the good news late yesterday evening.

    Unless I am forgetting someone, Cyclones have been pretty fortunate the last number of years to have avoided the ACL bug or other serious injuries. Last I can think of is TeeTee Starks in 2015.

    We went through a cycle of them for a couple of years. Tocarra Ross back in the mid-late 00’s was one. She was followed by another teammate but I can’t remember who. Think it may have been Wieben.

    The Ross injury happened right in front of me just seconds before the half at William's Arena. :(

    After Weiben tore her's it was Anderson who stepped up and had a good year for us in the paint.

    Ross just wasn't the same the next year. She seemed to have a particularly difficult recovery, but she eventually got back to her old form and has had a very successful career playing overseas (which she is still doing).

    Junod (and her amazing 3-month recovery) was another ACL tear. That was the 01-02 season.

    Maddy Baier tore her ACL in 2013. I had completely forgotten that happened.

    Starks wasn't an ACL tear. It was some other type of knee injury that had been lingering. "Articular cartilage damage" whatever that is.
