Baylor Women’s Basketball Recruiting

Conference: Big 12

Head Coach: Nicki Collen (1st season in 2021-22)

Official Bears roster


Unofficial Scholarship Chart

Note: The NCAA has granted an extra year of eligibility to 2020-21 D-I winter sports athletes (including women’s basketball players). Programs will be allowed to exceed the 15-scholarship limit for the 2021-22 season only (and only for their own returning players). Until there is definitive word that a player will be taking advantage of this extra year, the WBB Blog scholarship charts will not reflect this extra eligibility.
