Kelsee Selman (4-1) notched another win for the Lady Bears in the circle, with Shelby McGlaun (1) picking up her first collegiate save for BU.

Selman worked a scoreless 4.0 frames, striking out two and allowing just one hit.

After Kendall Potts came out in relief to try to finish off the seventh, a two-run rally for the Cardinals brought McGlaun back in to close it out, earning the freshman her first save.

Men’s Tennis

Mens Tennis Upsets No. 10 Georgia, 4-2 - Baylor Official Athletic Site, The 13th-ranked Baylor men's tennis team bounced back from its first loss of the season to upset No. 10 Georgia, 4-2, Saturday in consolation play at the ITA National Team Indoor Championships at the Boars Head Sports Club.

"I am really proud of the guys. It is a challenge to take a loss and then know you have to come out the next day and play another really, really good team. It is part of what makes this tournament so special. It is really good for the development of your group, because you really are challenged that way. Georgia has a really good team and I think it was a big deal for us to get off to a better start. We were a little better and we just talked about trying to improve and be one day better everyday. Today we were one day better and I am really proud of the guys for sticking together and giving it everything they had, so that we were able to get a really significant win." - head coach Matt Knoll on the match.

"I think it is a young guy starting to understand his game style. He is getting more comfortable with what he is trying to do out there. That is making all the difference in the world. I am really proud of him. He has been great.” - Knoll on the development of Johannes Schretter.

Lady Bears Basketball

Baseball

In the opener, Baylor relied on a sturdy pitching effort from Montana Parsons and a timely home run from Aaron Dodson on its way to a 6-3 win.

In the nightcap, the Bears turned in a hitting explosion, rocking Niagara for 15 hits in a 21-6 win.

Track & Field

The Baylor women's distance medley relay squad of Gabby Satterlee, Kiana Hawn, Alison Andrews-Paul and Maggie Montoya produced a season-best time of 11:05.68, while placing seventh at the Alex Wilson Invitational Saturday at the Loftus Sports Center. From Baylor Bears dot com.

The time, which currently sits No. 10 nationally, was the third-fastest in school history and improved upon BU's previous season-best mark of 11:12.39. Only the top 12 relay times in the country qualify for the national meet.

After the distance medley relay, Hawn raced individually in the 400 meters, securing third place with a personal-best time of 53.32. Hawn's previous season-best time was 54.34 and her career-best indoor mark was 54.13.

"It was a really good day. To run the third-fastest time in school history is outstanding. All the girls ran well. The race was loaded. It was the fastest DMR race that I can remember. We got back a little bit and Maggie ran from the back to have a really outstanding split of 4:36. We are sitting 10th in the country, so we will see if that gets us in. When you drop seven seconds off your previous season-best that is impressive." - head coach Todd Harbour on the race.

Baylor will now travel to the Big 12 Indoor Championship, Feb. 24-25, in Ames, Iowa.
