Baylor coach Kim Mulkey tallies 500th win

  In just 17 seasons, Kim Mulkey has posted 500 wins as head coach.

As Baylor secured its 27th win this season as well as the Big 12 regular-season title, head coach Kim Mulkey tallied her 500th career win. She is the second-fastest head coach to reach this milestone, following Leon Barmore, who happens to be Mulkey’s mentor.

From her first win with Baylor (a 74-62 win over Miami (Ohio) on Nov. 18, 2000), Mulkey has transformed the Lady Bears from a program that posted a 7-20 record the year before she took over to seven consecutive Big 12 regular-season titles.

She also led the Bears to two national titles (in 2005 and 2012) and 15 NCAA tournament appearances.

The win pushes her overall win percentage to 84.2 (To put that in perspective, Pat Summitt tallied over 1,000 total wins and posted a win percentage of 91.3, and she is considered the greatest coach in women’s basketball history).

So now, as March approaches, Baylor looks to make a run for the Final Four — a feat it hasn’t accomplished since the 2012 national championship — and add a few more wins to Mulkey’s total.
