Lady Bears improve off the glass after UConn win

By Pranay Malempati | Sports Writer

After victories over now-No. 4 Connecticut and unranked Oklahoma State, the Baylor women’s basketball team rises to No. 2 in the AP Poll this week.

The defending national champions entered their biggest non-conference game of the year Thursday night against then-No.1 UConn with an 11-1 record, but only one victory against a ranked opponent.

The Lady Bears put any lingering questions to rest by exploding in the fourth quarter to earn a convincing 74-58 victory and hand the Huskies their first home loss since 2013. Then on Sunday, Baylor dominated in their first home Big 12 game of the season, defeating Oklahoma State 94-48.
