When Baylor women's basketball beat UConn 68-57 on Thursday night in Waco, Texas, the Bears dealt the Huskies not only their first loss of the season but also their first regular season defeat in more than four years.

Baylor: The Lady Bears have won 28 consecutive home games.

"The energy we had was insane", said Brown, the 6-foot-7 senior post player who had 22 points and 17 rebounds against the Huskies.

Kalani Brown had 22 points and 17 rebounds for the Lady Bears (10-1), before a sellout crowd of 10,284 at the Ferrell Center.

"We will enjoy this, and they should enjoy it, but you can't overemphasize it".

Baylor dominated CT inside all night, relying on a three-pronged attack to overwhelm the undersized Huskies. "We're one of the elite programs". "We knew that we were going to be trading threes for twos".

Kalani Brown had 20 points and 17 rebounds as No. 8 Baylor won over a top-ranked team for the first time, beating CT 68-57 on Thursday night and handing the Huskies their first regular-season loss in more than four years. "How long did you think you were going to win every game in the regular season, 10 years?", said Huskies head coach Geno Auriemma.

"UConn gets everyone's best shot, they don't lose much, we don't lose much, and when you can do that year-after-year, so when we play each other it's good for women's basketball".

Days Of Fortnite Event Coming Back Next Week After Mix-Up
Two days later on January 4 , they chose to allow all players the chance to complete every " 14 Days of Fortnite " challenge. After further discussion, we've chose to bring back this event early next week through January 15 at 3 AM ET (0800 UTC).

The Huskies had the lead just once in the game and that was when Crystal Dangerfield scored in the opening minute of the game to make 2-0.

The Huskies ended the first half with a 12-4 run to get within a point, then tied the game at 32 on Katie Lou Samuelson's 3-pointer soon after halftime. Juicy Landrum scored 11 points, while Lauren Cox added nine points, seven rebounds and five blocks. Opens league play Sunday at Texas Tech. "They don't lose much, we don't lose much", Mulkey said. When we're not getting shots in our offense, we shoot worse than we normally do. "Yes, this was a great win, but off to the next one". Conference play begins for UConn on Sunday at Houston, and the Huskies quickly find themselves facing another big test in No. 3 Louisville at the end of January.

It was the Huskies' first regulation loss in 209 straight games.

The key to responding to this loss, Collier said, will be finding a way to focus on their upcoming games while still taking time to learn from the mistakes they made against Baylor.

"We're fixing to go into our league".

We've officially seen it all.

"Connecticut gets everybody's best shot. He's done it all". "It's hard. Geno's the best at it".
