DUNKS FOR EVERYONE - USA TODAY Sports

Both Baylor basketball teams won by a score of 75-48 this weekend, with the Lady Bears taking down Texas in Brittney Griner's last visit to the Erwin Center and the Bears rolling over Texas Tech while throwing down some impressive dunks.

Baylor Men's Basketball snapped a three-game losing streak with their win over Tech on Saturday, building on the double-doubles by Cory Jefferson and Isaiah Austin. Though most of the Bears' first 15 points came from three-pointers, after Tech's Josh Gray missed a breakaway dunk Baylor seemed to put on a dunking clinic, with Jefferson, Austin, Pierre Jackson, Deuce Bello and others all dunking. In fact, both Austin and Jackson (the tallest and shortest players on the Baylor roster) had a three-pointer and a dunk in the game. Jefferson's markedly improved level of play has turned into notice by NBA scouts, and current mock-drafts are positing that Baylor might have three players taken-Austin, Jackson, and Jefferson.

Brittney Griner also got in on the dunking action down in Austin, starting the Lady Bears' game-winning run with her 13th career dunk. Despite the dunk, it was an off night offensively for Griner, who finished with just 14 points. Odyssey Sims, however, finished with 18 points and 5 assists, while Jordan Madden scored 14 to propel Baylor to the win.

Baylor Softball wrapped up a triple-header Saturday with two wins over Northern Illinois after an extra-inning loss to Sam Houston State. Freshman pitcher Heather Stearns threw the 16th no-hitter in Baylor history in the third game, which the Lady Bears won 1-0. Courtney Repka threw a 1-hitter in the game before, leading Baylor to a 4-1 win.

Baylor Men's Tennis recovered from their first loss of the season with a 6-1 win over Purdue this weekend, playing at the new Hawkins Indoor Tennis Center due to the weather. Baylor claimed the doubles point for the 4th time this season, while Baylor's two ranked singles players claimed their points in straight sets.

Baylor Men's Golf opens their spring season at the UTSA Oak Hills Invitational in San Antonio today, hoping to continue on the high finish to the fall season, where they took second place at the Warrior-Wave Intercollegiate. The Bears are ranked 40th in the nation right now, and look to better last year's 3rd place finish at Oak Hills.

23rd-ranked Baylor Women's Golf travels to Los Angeles for the Northrop Grumman Invitational, held at the Palos Verdes Golf Club. Baylor is coming off a tournament win at last week's Hurricane Invitational, and freshman Lauren Taylor took third, individually. 15 other collegiate teams will compete in today's tournament, including Texas and Oklahoma State.

Baylor Acrobatics and Tumbling lost to Fairmont State in their first 2013 season meet on Sunday by 3 points, after an injury to one of the starting members. Baylor competes next tomorrow against Azusa Pacific at the Ferrell Center.
