The Baylor Lady Bears are just six wins away from completing a perfect 40-0 season. Can Brittney Griner keep up her torrid pace and lead the team to the promised land?

The Baylor Lady Bears are expected to be announced as the No. 1 overall seed for the 2012 Women's NCAA Tournament during Monday's Selection Show where 64 teams will vie for the 2012 national championship. The Lady Bears are 34-0, have the best player in college basketball and are poised to make NCAA history. If Baylor goes on to win six in a row, they will be the first team to cap an undefeated season with a 40th win.

That best player, would be junior center Brittney Griner. Griner is averaging 22.7 points/game, shooting 60% from field and over 80% from the line and averaging 9.4 rebounds/game.Yet, the numbers don't do enough justice to her influence on the entire game on both ends of the floor, along with how much of a leader she's emerged into now in her third year playing in Waco.

This Lady Bears team are even better than in 2011. Odyssey Sims averages a solid 15 points, 5 assists and 3 rebounds a game and Destiny Williams has found a way to build on the frontline that was quite impressive with Griner by herself.

They've won games by an average of more than 27 points with 8 of the wins over Top 25 teams. Now, they've just got 6 games left in the journey. 40-0 would be a powerful record ledger in the annuls of women's hoops history. Something that even Connecticut and Tennessee could appreciate. Sky's the limit, even for Brittney Griner to reach out and achieve.
