No. 2 Baylor women’s basketball dropped their first game of the season Saturday to No. 5 South Carolina. The 74-59 loss marks the end of the Lady Bears’ 36-game win streak.

Despite a plus-10 margin in turnovers, Baylor was unable to hold the Gamecocks down on defense, giving up a season-high 52.8% from the field. The 74 opposing points scored were also the most the Lady Bears have given up this season.

South Carolina’s Aliyah Boston and Tyasha Harris led the game in scoring, supplying 20 points each along with 13 rebounds for Boston and seven assists for Harris.
