  By: Sanford H.R. No. 630
         WHEREAS, The Baylor University Lady Bears basketball team and
  Coach Kim Mulkey reached the pinnacle of success by winning the NCAA
  Division I national championship on April 3, 2012; and
         WHEREAS, In a dominating performance in the title game,
  Brittney Griner scored 26 points, grabbed 13 rebounds, and blocked
  5 shots to lead Baylor to an 80-61 victory over Notre Dame; the
  championship triumph brought the team's record to a perfect 40-0,
  which set a new NCAA milestone for the most wins in a single season;
         WHEREAS, All year long, the Lady Bears were simply
  unstoppable; among the highlights was a 23-point blowout over
  defending national champion Texas A&M to win the Big 12 tournament,
  and Baylor went on to overwhelm every team it faced as it advanced
  toward the NCAA final, winning each game by 12 points or more; and
         WHEREAS, The 2012 title marked yet another major achievement
  for Coach Mulkey, who arrived at Baylor in 2000 to take over a
  program that had finished last in the conference the previous year;
  her impact was immediate, and in her debut season she guided the
  Lady Bears to their initial NCAA tournament appearance; four years
  later, she succeeded in her quest to make her team the best in the
  nation, as Baylor claimed its first NCAA championship; and
         WHEREAS, With a combination of skilled coaching and
  superlative performances on the hardwood, the Lady Bears have
  joined the list of elite teams that have earned multiple national
  titles, and their accomplishment is a source of pride to the
  university and its many supporters across the Lone Star State; now,
  therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 83rd Texas
  Legislature hereby congratulate the Baylor University Lady Bears
  basketball team on winning the 2012 NCAA Division I national
  championship and extend to Coach Kim Mulkey and the team's players,
  assistant coaches, and staff sincere best wishes for continued
  success; and, be it further
         RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be
  prepared for the team as an expression of high regard by the Texas
  House of Representatives.
