South Carolina grad transfer Te’a Cooper (5-8 RS JR guard, Powder Springs, GA) lands at Baylor.
For the second-straight year Baylor women’s basketball head coach Kim Mulkey will have a starting All-SEC guard join the program as a grad transfer with the intent of switching to point guard.

Baylor, Mulkey and Cooper look to build on that blueprint for success in 2019-20.
“As most who follow the Lady Bears know Chloe Jackson, changed my mind about graduate transfers after such a great experience last year,” Mulkey said. “We’re excited to bring another extremely talented guard in this season in Te’a Cooper. She’s brings a lot of experience to our team, she’s a battle-tested guard and we are looking forward to ways she can help the program.”
