No. 24 Baylor women’s basketball tops Kansas 69-61 for second-straight win – The Baylor Lariat
By Zach Babajanof-Rustrian | Sports Writer, Claire Marie Scott | LTVN Sports Reporter
No. 24 Baylor’s women’s basketball secured its second win in a row by a score of 69-61 over Kansas on Wednesday night in the Foster Pavilion.
LTVN’s Claire Marie Scott takes you through the Bears decisive victory
The Bears (20-6, 9-6 Big 12) started off rocky as the Jayhawks (15-11, 8-7 Big 12) opened the game with the lead in the first quarter. Baylor was able to end the period with the edge, as it led by a point, 16-15.
In the second quarter, the Bears created some separation. They went on a 10-0 run over nearly five minutes and were able to extend their lead to 35-26 heading into halftime.
In the third quarter, the Bears kept the advantage. However, sophomore forward Bella Fontleroy took a hard fall, forcing her to leave the game.
“She fell on her back, shocker,” head coach Nicki Collen said. “She got hurt taking a charge or trying to take the charge. We think she’s going to be pretty sore tomorrow, but certainly will be day-to-day at this point.”
Even though Fontleroy left in the middle of the third quarter, Baylor was able to end the frame with the lead, 54-45.
In the fourth quarter, Baylor put a bow on it and came out with its second-straight win for the first time since it started the year 14-0.
The Bears’ bench outscored the Jayhawks’ bench 35-0 on the night. This was in part by graduate student forward Dre’Una Edwards (20), senior guard Jana Van Gytenbeek (11) and junior guard Yaya Felder’s (4) offensive contributions.
“I think our bench has been good all season. You know Bella has been good off the bench when it’s been her. Yaya has had huge games for us,” Collen said. “I just think you’re starting to see Jana grow up a little bit. It’s not like she’s young, but just her confidence is exploding right now, which is really … important for us.”
In addition to her being the highest scoring player for the Bears, Edwards, a former starter, said she’s happy to contribute in any way she can.
“I’ve been on the bench before when I was at Kentucky. Coming back from a suspension, I was on the bench for the rest of the season,” Edwards said. “I know I just have to go out there. We’re fighting whenever my team is ready for me to go out there. Whenever the coaches are ready to call on me, … [I] have to go out and do what I do.”
Not only was Edwards happy with her performance, but Van Gytenbeek expanded on how her confidence is growing.
“I can say about myself that I’m consistent. I stay consistent all of this season and just kind of wait [my] turn, and Nicki gave me an opportunity,” Van Gytenbeek said. “So I just wanted to work as hard as I could to do that.
“It’s also very easy to be successful when you’re surrounded by people like Dre, Sarah [Andrews], [Darianna Littlepage-] Buggs. They’re going to work just as hard as me and get open.”
The Bears will now turn their attention to the No. 22 West Virginia Mountaineers. In their last encounter on Feb. 10, the Bears pulled out the 65-58 win in Waco.
“Going to West Virginia isn’t easy. They played well at home all year,” Collen said. “You know they’re a team because we just played them. It’s an easier turnaround in terms of scouting, but certainly not an easier team to play against because of the quality of their guards, the way they turn you over.”
The Bears will play the Mountaineers at 1 p.m. on Saturday in Morgantown, W.Va.
Kansas City Chiefs’ nutritionist breaks down what team eats
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Hungry to know what the Kansas City Chiefs eat in a day?
Celebrity nutritionist Leslie Bonci recently revealed what the team’s pre-game meals are and how much they eat in a given day.
In an interview with BetKansas, Bonci said fans shouldn’t assume the players, including Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce, eat 10,000 calories each day.
How much do the Chiefs eat?
“When we are looking at football players, don’t assume they eat 10,000 calories a day because they don’t,” Bonci shared. “In general, QBs like Patrick Mahomes eat, at the most, 3,000 calories a day, and not everyone eats five times a day.”
Patrick Mahomes #15 of the Kansas City Chiefs leads a huddle prior to the AFC Championship NFL football game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Cincinnati Bengals at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium on January 29, 2023 in Kansas City, Missouri. (C
According to 2021’s statistics report by the United Nations (UN) Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Europe and North America consumed the most calories in 2021, averaging about 3,500 calories per day.
She also noted that the calorie intake also depends on the particular player.
“Some players don’t have an appetite in the mornings and aren’t necessarily eating a lot at lunch because they’re training,” she continued.
What do the Chiefs eat?
Bonci revealed that a lot of the guys on the team love fish, BBQ, and breakfast foods.
“I wouldn’t say it’s a superstition, but players are creatures of habit and there are some that like breakfast foods even if it’s on a night game because that’s their comfort food,” she said, adding, “They want an egg sandwich, pancakes, a waffle or French Toast.”
During the week, meals usually consist of fish and chicken. Red meat comes in third.

“For our team, they practice after lunch, so they typically don’t eat an enormous lunch because it doesn’t feel good when you have to practice on the field after eating a large volume of food,” Bonci revealed. “More likely, they do eat breakfast before 8:30, lunch is between 12-1 p.m. and then they’re on the field at 1 pm. so they have options to come back up into the cafeteria and get something after practice.”
She said some people make the mistake and eat too much and they don’t feel good on the field.
She added, “Once you try that, you learn your lesson really fast.”
In terms of sweet treats, she said most players do that on their own personal time, since desserts are not put out regularly.

Mother begs for donations to help gunman charged with Kansas City parade shooting
The mother of a man charged for his alleged role in the Kansas City parade shooting has asked for donations to go towards his hospital treatment.
Teneal Burnside, the mother of 23-year-old Lyndell Mays, launched a GoFundMe page in aid of her son. She shared a photo of Mays in the hospital bed with a tube in his mouth.
Mays, who was wounded during the melee and taken to hospital for treatment, has been charged with second-degree murder along with Dominic Miller, 18. He was interviewed by police from his hospital bed.
While donations have been made to the victims of the attack, Mays‘ mother has pleaded with donations to be sent for her son.
“I ask to all please help by donating to help him with his medical bills during this tragic time he is going through,” she wrote.
“He’s in ICU fighting for a recovery from several surgeries, from going to the Chiefs Super Bowl celebration parade with his older sister to getting shot multiple times a time that was meant to bring so much joy to many has brought so much pain and sadness to all that was attending.”
She added, “I give special thanks to Chrissy [redacted] a nurse that helped my daughter give CPR and chest palpitations at the parade to him along with St. Luke’s trauma nurses.”
Teneal ended, “I give thanks to all whos [sic] helping him along his long recovery. God bless everyone who has been affected by this sad ordeal.”
Lyndell Mays’ family put up strong defense
A screenshot of the GoFundMe showed it had received $100 before the campaign was removed.
It is unclear whether Ms Burnside is aware that her son is accused of starting the events that led to the death of one woman and 22 people being injured, including 12 children.
Lisa Lopez-Gavlan, a 43-year-old local radio DJ and mother-of-two, tragically passed away after receiving a gunshot wound. Miller has been accused of gunning down Lopez-Gavlan by prosecutors, and Mays‘ sister told the Daily Mail her brother was “innocent” as he was defending her during the chaos.
“For them to make my brother out to be a monster, it really hurts me inside because he was only trying to protect us,” she said.
“He doesn’t deserve to be thrown in it like that. My brother is tall and broad, he’s hefty. They were young kids and little guys, trying to prove a point.”
His bail has been set at $1million and he remains under watch at a hospital while he recovers.
