  • Baylor head coach Kim Mulkey reacts to a call against Iowa State in the first half of an NCAA college basketball game Saturday Jan. 16 2021 in Waco Texas

She tested negative three times leading up to Baylor's January 2 game, but made a decision to continue to quarantine since it was still possible that she could have the virus. The almighty dollar is more important than the health and well-being of myself, the players, or anyone else. It was a wise decision, because Mulkey tested positive on January 4 as she was preparing to return to the team.

"One conference does this, one conference does that". I've had it - come talk to me sometime. I'm uncomfortable coaching. I understand, COVID is real. But I don't know. all the calls and procedures, that's gonna go on and make it unusual, uncomfortable for every program. Team activities were immediately put on pause and two games were postponed.

Baylor was still without guard DiJonai Carrington and forward Caitlin Bickle, two of their primary players off the bench.

The remainder of the Baylor players arrived off the pause Friday and had their first exercise in 2 weeks using Mulkey on match day. She gave the Cyclones full credit for ending the Lady Bears' streak, saying Baylor could probably beat some opponents with that little preparation, but not Iowa State. "It's called the almighty dollar", Mulkey said via ESPN. "It was an ideal time for everything you saw happen to take place". In that match, Joens hit the winning free throw and also finished the Lady Bears' 58-game Large 12 regular-season winning series. Their home winning streak was the 10th longest in NCAA history. Iowa's women, who were second behind Baylor at 42 wins in a row, lost in overtime to Ohio State on Wednesday.

It was a massive success for Iowa State (9-4) from the team which has won or shared the previous 10 Large 12 regular-season names and contains three NCAA championships. Joens, a junior guard/forward, is the Big 12's leading scorer at 24.6 points per game. The Lady Bears overcame an early 13-point deficit, but couldn't avoid a second consecutive streak-snapping loss to the Cyclones.

"It feels great when you are able to find a win like this", Joens said. "Everyone did their jobs, everyone executed".
