Lady Bears Basketball

No. 6 WBB Powers Past Kansas on the Road - Baylor University Official Athletic Site, Kalani Brown scored 22 points, her 10th 20-plus point game of the season, as Baylor women's basketball defeated Kansas on the road Saturday afternoon.

Baylor roars past KU women, 83-48 | KUsports.com, For the first four minutes of the Kansas women's basketball team's 83-48 loss to No. 6 Baylor, the Jayhawks went possession-for-possession with the Big 12 powerhouse on Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse.

On the Jayhawks' first two possessions, Kansas junior Austin Richardson knocked down 3-pointers after Kylee Kopatich and Brianna Osorio drove into the teeth of the Baylor defense before kicking out for the open triple. Junior Christalah Lyons added five early points by attacking the rim, and the Jayhawks owned a 13-12 lead.

The Bears proved to be too much to handle for the Jayhawks, though. The Jayhawks (11-4 overall, 2-2 in Big 12 play) had a scoreless drought of more than five minutes after their hot start, and Baylor blitzed them with a 13-0 run and never looked back.

"Baylor obviously (is) a very, very difficult team to defend — in particular in the paint. I think they were averaging over 50 points a game in the paint against Big 12 competition," Kansas coach Brandon Schneider said. "We set some goals to try to feel like we could be competitive. We either achieved some of those goals or we weren't far off. We didn't really make enough shots on the offensive end to stay in the game."

Baylor basketball avoids 0-3 Big 12 skid, beats Texas 69-60 | KCENTV.com, Baylor snapped an two-game losing skid with a 69-60 win over Texas at the Ferrell Center on Saturday.

UT starts off hot, freezes in second half - San Antonio Express-News, Scott Drew saw the nightmare realized in front of his eyes as Jase Febres crept behind Baylor’s zone defense, into the corner just in front of the Bears’ bench.

The coach’s apoplectic cries arrived too late. Just like the defense.

Matt Coleman whipped the ball to Febres, who smoothly, confidently swished his fourth 3-pointer with 87 seconds remaining in the first half. All Scott could do was pace the sideline in disgust.

For Febres, who as a Houston Westfield senior almost chose to play under Drew, the highlights stopped there. The sweet-shooting freshman went scoreless the rest of the way as the Longhorns (10-5, 1-2) fell to the Bears (11-4, 1-2), 69-60, at the Ferrell Center.

Baylor defense leads Bears past Texas | The Baylor Lariat, “Another Big 12 game, hard fought. As far as the first half, we gave them too many points in transition, didn’t do a good job in finding Jase [Febres], who had 18 points in the first half,” Head Coach Scott Drew said. “Second, we did a better job not turning the ball over and getting transition points up. To hold them to 20 points in the second, that’s a tremendous defensive effort. Typical Big 12 game.”
