The 2009 Final Four team that returned four starters is now working to find a replacement. Why would a top-tier program lose their starting point guard one week before the regular season tips off with no statement from head coach Kim Mulkey available?
Kelli Griffin, while not a household name, was a solid presence in Mulkey's system, and had started 50 consecutive games for the Bears prior to the announcement. Griffin had 362 career assists, good for seventh all-time at Baylor. She was an honorable mention 2010 coaches all-Big 12 selection.
Is trouble brewing in Waco, just weeks before the team looks to unseat top-ranked UConn?
