NEW YORK (AP) Baylor coach Kim Mulkey knew her team was going to be pretty good this season. She just didn't know how good because the Lady Bears had too many unknowns.

They turned out to be the best team in the country before the NCAA Tournament, finishing as a unanimous No. 1 in the last Associated Press women's basketball poll of the season released Monday.

"I don't know that I had the expectations that we were going to finish No. 1, start No. 1," Mulkey said. "I had the expectation that we were one of about five or six teams that could win it all, and that could be ranked high. But I knew we would be a top team. "
