Baylor wins one for its own Morghan Medlock

Tragic story out of my alma mater Oregon today…..Baylor University junior guard Morghan Medlock’s mother was killed in a murder-suicide in Little Rock, AR on Friday. Baylor Coach Kim Mulkey offered to cancel the game against the Ducks and go to Arkansas with her, but Medlock insisted they play, and the Bears won:

Medlock is from Los Angeles, and played for Narbonne High School. It was the recruitment process that brought her to the storied high school team that lead to the removal of its coach, James Anderson, in 2006. Medlock went on to play two seasons for the University of Southern California.

Last May Medlock transferred to Baylor after the NCAA granted her a waiver that Baylor spokesman Kevin Price referred to as “private in nature.” USC never made an official release about the transfer, said spokeswoman Darcy Couch. Coach Mark Trakh said, “It was Morghan’s decision to transfer, and we wish her all the best.”

Medlock’s stepsister, freshman Chantelle Price, also plays for Baylor.

  1. Yes, it is a horrible story and not only will it ruin lives for Morghan and her family it will ruin live for the four years old little girl left behind by her father the suicide victim. I hope the note left behind can shed some light on why both victims lives had to end as the end result. I pray and mourn for everyone who is affected and life have been shattered to peices.
