WACO, Texas (AP) Baylor coach Kim Mulkey no longer has All-American players Brittney Griner or Odyssey Sims on the floor like in recent seasons.

Mulkey instead has a roster loaded with talented young players that makes her think about what John Calipari has with the No. 1 Kentucky men and his platoon system.

"I kind of like what Calipari's doing. You hate to call them bench players, you hate to call them subs, you hate to call them all that," said Mulkey, in her 15th season at Baylor. "I can only play five at a time, and I'm comfortable starting any of those 10. I'm comfortable with any of those 10 being on the floor right now."
