By Pranay Malempati | Sports Writer

The No. 6 Lady Bears earned their first top-ten win of the season by beating the undefeated and top-ranked Connecticut Huskies 74-58 Thursday night on UConn’s home floor, ending the Huskies’ 98-game home winning streak.

Not only did Baylor become the first team to drop UConn on their home floor since Notre Dame in 2013, but are also the first to defeat the No. 1 team in the country for two straight seasons since Duke did in 2006 and 2007.

The game was close for three quarters and the Lady Bears entered the final period with just a 55-52 lead.
